About This Site
This BLOG was created to provide information about forensics to crime writers and readers alike. While I make every effort to explain these issues well they are complex. In order to keep the articles concise I may not cover all aspects of a particular topic. Sometimes I have to break up the topics into multiple articles but they will still be fairly general. Crime scenes can be very diverse and certain forensic applications in one case may not be appropriate in another. If you have questions please forward them to me and I’ll do my best to address them as they pertain to your specific plot. I DO NOT comment on active cases. Real world cases require an enormous amount of analysis. These postings are general at best and should not be relied upon for any conclusion in a real world cases as facts change from incident to incident. This information is presented as an aid to fiction writers, period. If you need consulting work done I highly recommend Bevel Gardner & Associates here in the United States.
I am also interested in providing some information about how forensics might be applied in the realm of fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction. It should go without saying that these posts are not to be taken literally (although I will make every effort to remain true to the science). So for all you defense attorneys that might want to depose me on these topics for some trial in the future just remember that “fiction” has a definition for a reason. To the rest of you I hope you enjoy the topics and my efforts to ignite your imagination.
