My friend Bill Hopkins, a mystery writer and mostly-retired Missouri judge, has a new blog for writers, Bench, Book, and Gavel. Here’s what he says about it:
“Let’s talk about the law. Specifically, the criminal law. In the United States of America, we have at least fifty different sets of criminal statutes. Add to that all the territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, etc.) and the federal statutes, we have more sets.
Needless to say, that gets confusing quickly.
What I intend to do here in this blog is to discuss legal issues that are important to writers but also to entertain and inform you, the readers of our books. Without readers, after all, we’d be writing to each other.”
Bill plans a weekly blog. Subscribe and receive it in your e-mail in box, as you do mine. And you’ll be twice as smart about the law!
