Foremost serial killer expert in the United States, star of the hit Investigation Discovery series DARK MINDS, and acclaimed investigative journalist M. William Phelps is the national bestselling, award-winning author of 23 books. Winner of 2008 New England Book Festival Award for “I’ll Be Watching You,” Phelps has made well over 100 television appearances, including CBS’s “Early Show,” “The Today Show,” “The View,” “Fox & Friends,” truTV, Discovery Channel, Fox News Channel, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Learning Channel, Biography Channel, History Channel, Oxygen, OWN, and many others.

The year 2013 brings several new titles and re-releases to press from Phelps, along with the second season of DARK MINDS.
In March, look for KISS OF THE SHE-DEVIL, a book focusing on the murder of Martha Gail Fulton in Lake Orion Township, Michigan.
Slated for the fall, BAD GIRLS is the true story of Bobbi Jo Smith and Jennifer Jones, a pair of hot teen lesbians convicted of murdering a man they lived with in Mineral Wells, Texas—with one potential major twist: Is one of the girls serving 50 years for a murder she did not commit?
Currently, Phelps is working on a book about Sheila Davalloo. In February 2012, 42-year-old former pharmaceutical researcher from Pleasantville, N.Y., Davalloo, was found guilty of murder in the death of Anne Lisa Raymundo.
For his next book, Phelps is actively researching the Danny Hembree case. Hembree, who was sentenced to death for the 2009 killing of 17-year-old Heather Catterton, entered a plea of guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Randi Saldana. Some believe he also murdered 30-year-old Deborah Ratchford in 1992, but that charge was dismissed.
If you have information about any of these cases and would like to speak with M. William Phelps anonymously or on the record, email him immediately.

A personal note from Phelps:
If find that your local Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, drug store/grocery store, or any other local retailer that sells books is not stocking my titles, please tell the manager of that establishment that you’d like to see my books in the store, and also drop me a note with the name of the store, town, state. I want absolute convenience for my readers. You should not have to go out of your way to purchase my books! They should be available to you wherever you shop.
On that note, I want to express my deepest gratitude and thank each and every reader and television viewer personally for buying the books and tuning into DARK MINDS. I feel like the luckiest person alive. You’ve made my dreams a reality and I will never take any of it for granted. I look forward to the years to come and the great stories that I will tell. My fans are the most important part of what I do.
Please join me on Twitter and Facebook and keep up with everything going on. Don’t be afraid to send me a greeting or reminder of what you’d like to see on DARK MINDS or the type of crime stories you’d like me to cover in book form. I listen to everyone.
