They would appreciate questions in advance from the members, but they understand a time for spontaneous Q & A will be expected. With a focus on working out how to write about such a scene in your book, be prepared to bring a wide variety of questions about the subject. In other words, the subject is not cut and dried, and is highly politicized, so how do you drill down through "the noise" to tell the "real story" of your characters in your novels, and do it in such a way as to be realistic?</p> <p>Send your questions to: VP1@SinCAtlanta.com.</p> <p>Ed Medlin is former DeKalb County P.D., and retired as Emory University's Chief-of-Police.

Dot Meyerhoff is a spunky 52 year old psychologist. Too dedicated for her own good, she should be counseling cops, not solving crimes. The Fifth Reflection, third in the series, was a mystery finalist in the 2017 Best Books award.</p> <p>About "The Fifth Reflection"</p> <p>Police psychologist Dr. Dot Meyerhoff is pulled into the vortex of a terrible crime involving an eccentric photographer whose images of nude children make her a prime suspect in the disappearance of her own daughter. The principal investigator in the case is a young officer whose dedication to work and obsession with finding the missing child is tearing his own family apart. Trapped between her allegiance to the investigator, her complicated connections to the photographer, and her unstable relationship with the police chief, Dot must find a way to help everyone involved. As Dot's psychological expertise and determination contribute to solving the mystery, her involvement with the missing child's extended, dysfunctional family brings her face-to-face with painful psychological issues of her own. The Fifth Reflection delivers a chilling, up-close look at the psychological strain of investigating Internet crimes against children, the complexities of being married to a cop, and the deadliness of jealousy.</p> <p>Ellen Kirschman, Ph.D.<br/>signup for her blog or newsletter at www.ellenkirschman.com</p> </p> <p>Atlanta, GA - USA</p> <p>Tuesday, May 15 at 7:00 PM</p> <p>14</p> <p>https://www.meetup.com/Sisters-in-Crime-Atlanta-Chapter/events/249536880/</p> ]]></content> </entry> <entry> <id>tag:meetup.com,2002-06-04:www.meetup.com/Sisters-in-Crime-Atlanta-Chapter/events/atom/246642972/</id> <title><![CDATA[KAREN COMMINS: Audio Book Production]]></title> <updated>2018-01-11T11:48:14-05:00</updated> <link href="https://www.meetup.com/Sisters-in-Crime-Atlanta-Chapter/events/246642972/" /> <content type="html"><![CDATA[<p><img style="float:left; margin-right:4px" src="https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/4/6/5/a/event_457458010.jpeg" alt="photo" class="photo" />Sisters in Crime (Atlanta Chapter)</p> <p><p>We've all heard books with bad audio.
