Crime Writing For Beginners – An Infographic


‘All novels are about crime. You’d be hard pressed to find any novel that does not have an element of crime. I don’t see myself as a crime novelist, but there are crimes in my books. That’s the nature of story-telling, if you want to reflect the real world.’ ~Carl Hiaasen

I have written a few posts on Crime Writing, from 5 Reasons To Write Crime Fiction to 10 Deadly Poisons – a crime writer’s resource, to The Human Body After Death.

Crime fiction remains the most popular of all reading genres, and I thought I would share this Crime-Writing Infographic for beginner crime writers.
