UNIQUE CRIME AUTHOR EXPERIENCES

Successful authors strive for authenticity and technical accuracy in their plots and stories, many established authors have their own contacts and sources which they have built up over the years. We appreciate, especially for writers who are just beginning their career, it can be difficult to forge these links plus it is not always possible to have a contact in every topic or discipline. That should not result in a book being inaccurate, our expert’s knowledge and experiences are extensive, which means we can be a great source of information for all crime fiction writers. Our expertise cover the following areas:

  • Crime Scene Protocols & Procedures

  • Forensic Knowledge & Tenchniques around Trace Evidence 

  • Anthropology & Bodily Fluids including DNA

  • Criminology & Profiling

  • Interview Techniques

  • Police Procedures

  • Prison and Probation Matters

  • Archaeology & Body Recovery

  • Fire Chemistry & Investigation

  • Road Traffic Collision Investigation

  • Forensic Linguistics 

  • Plus much more, just ask! 

Think Forensic has worked with novices and first time writers through to high profile authors on both an individual basis and on our Author’s days group workshops.

Our author’s days are held a couple of times a year, at our own crime scene centre. We give you an insight into crime scene investigation and forensic techniques, plus we also look at the emotional and psychological aspects of investigating crimes. We then kit you out in crime suits and let you experience an investigation for yourselves.

In addition to our authors workshops we have run workshops for both readers and writers at both Harrogate Crime writing festival, on behalf of Pan McMillan’s “Thin Blue Spine”, and also Ireland’s International writing festival, Dublin’s Murder One, on behalf of Lynda La Plante and Bonnier Zaffre Publishing. Please see the case studies for more information.

TESTIMONIALS

Joined the Think Forensic team for one of their Authors’ CSI Workshops and loved it. A fascinating behind-the-scenes look for wannabe crime writers who don’t have a friendly forensics expert to turn to. It left me buzzing with ideas! The team really know their stuff and I’m looking forward to their next workshop already.

Really enjoyed the authors’ workshop, and looking forward to putting in the detail Think Forensic gave me – makes my work so much more credible. Highly recommended for all crime authors!

As an author I found Think Forensic’s team pro-active with my enquiries. The information they provided and kind and patient responses added to the overall quality & accuracy of my novel. I cannot recommend Think Forensic enough and recommend any author contact them.
