"The instructor took the mystery out of mystery writing. Inch by inch, from the title, to the opening, on to the MacGuffin, and finally to how to deal with agents and publishers, he taught us the ins and outs of this mystery writing business."
- Pamela Weaver
 Interior Designer
"I especially liked the fact that the instructor had not only a writing and teaching background but also actually worked as a private investigator. This gave him a certain authority when discussing investigative techniques that increased students' comfort with a field most of us have only experienced vicariously."
- Patricia Foulk
 Public Affairs Director
