As I started writing, I couldn't get enough information regarding the craft. Whether it was researching an author and getting advice on writing, or researching how to write a query letter, to gaining information regarding crime scenes, I was always looking on the web to research and learn. Below are some of my favorite sites - whether they be informative or authors, I hope you guys enjoy visiting these links.
