Brian Lee Tucker


Brian Lee Tucker is a true crime buff who plays when he should be working, works when he should be sleeping, eats when he should be exercising, and writes far less frequently than all of those books on writing say he should. Still, he manages to pursue his dream of becoming a writer.
He lives in Indiana with a very independent but sweet natured cat named Little Boy. Thanks to Amazon Kindle, his dreams of becoming a published true crime writer have finally come true.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read was HG Wells' War of the Worlds, and it scared the shit out of me. But at the same time I was enthralled.
How do you approach cover design?
It depends; if it is a true crime book, I go for an image that will really grab the reader's attention, like a up close and personal shot of the serial killer's face.
