I'm sharing the 3 most important lessons I learned about storytelling while listening to a True Crime Podcast!

My wife and I took our two kids to visit my sister over Thanksgiving. And like any parent knows on a long trip, the kiss of death when traveling with young kids is talking too much once they’ve fallen asleep.

So we queued up a podcast, and as soon as we heard snoring from the backseat, we started listening to Up and Vanished, a true crime podcast about a 10 year old cold case of a missing woman.

While I listened, it made me think a lot about how we write fiction (and specifically suspense, thriller, mystery, horror, and crime fiction).
