From the Author
This was actually my first completed novel, and as such will always hold a dear place in my heart. I'd struggled for years to come up with a story concept that would hold my interest long enough to finish it, and despaired for years of ever completing a novel and moving from the ranks of mere "writer" to "author."
Having spent considerable time in ministry counseling others, and sharing a keen interest in understanding the nature and problem of evil, I began researching both serial killers and how the behavioral science of "profiling" actually works. It was in 2005 that I hit on the idea, and from there it was off to the races.
Well, not quite. First, I did a ton of research both on historical serial killers (and boy did that lead to some weird dreams!) as well as more on how the FBI actually functions. From there, I built the puzzle that became the core of The Coppersmith's story, and then wrote it in several chunks. Still, it took me two years to finish. But the euphoria I felt when I actually reached the climax and the end of the story was unforgettable.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
