About the Author

My first book, Death Row, I wrote after my son was wrongly convicted in Tennessee and sent to death row. I began researching the death penalty, and speaking out against it. I wanted others to know how the death penalty works so I interviewed the experts, and the inmates themselves. I also interviewed victims family members. I wanted to bring my son's case to light. I have since written five other books on capital punishment, including my life story about my son Jeff.

More About the Author

I was born and raised in Concord, NH and moved south back in the 70s, ending up in TN. With four kids, I lived in NC for a few years until moving to middle Tn and began to write.

My first three books were bought by McFarland co, called, Death Row, Victims, and From Vietnam To Hell. Next, I sold Young Blood and Congregation of the Condemned by Prometheus Books and New Horizon Press took They're Going To Kill My Son which was my life story. However they changed things, names and all so eventually I rewrote it, brought it up to date and began to self publish my own books, called, A Mothers Torment, www.amotherstorment.com

I self published The Choice Is Yours, A Long Road Home, The Devil's Playground, and There IS Life After Fifty. McFarland is now republishing my first three books that had gone out of print and now I'm putting them up as ebooks.


Now that I'm in my seventies, I'm trying to learn photography now in order to do some travel articles with photos. Also working on two non fiction books plus a romance.

My oldest son Jeff Dicks was killed in 1999 due to medical neglect and I lost my youngest son Trevor Dicks who spoke out on the death penalty issue with me at schools and colleges, due to a car crash. I adopted Jeff's daughter when she was born and she's now in her thirties with three beautiful children of her own.

I try to keep busy with my writing, my photography, spending time with my three beautiful great grandchildren, crocheting and anything I can do.

Will be adding my books as ebooks in the near future

I thought this book was just fine not sure why the other person had a problem with her book, thats why she wrote it its her view of things and you dont have to say bad comments....how can they judge the book only after reading 3 Pages.

Not sure what the other reviewers issue was. I found this book very enlightening. Worth the read. Buy ( and read) the book then make an informed decision.

It seems Ms. Dicks takes everything these inmates say at face value. I just read the three pages in her book, the only reason I paid my hard earned money for this trash, that deal with a certain inmate. Now, first off, an attorney will be contacted tomorrow. Second, I realize there may be SOME inmates who are innocent or maybe even not as guilty as they are branded but sweet heart, some are pure evil. Before she writes anymore and even after writing this trash, she should speak to EVERYONE involved and find out what REALLY happened behind closed doors before murder was convicted. Save your money and watch the antis protest the next execution on CNN...its more interesting AND potentially more factual.
