AUTHOR INTERVIEW 35

Ronald K. Mullins

USA

Age 56

I grew up in a small coal mining town in southwestern Virginia. I quit high school in my junior year, and I could not read past a fourth grade level. A teacher at Mountain Empire Community college recognized my difficulties in reading and took the extra time to help me. I hope my story will help others to work past their difficulties and learn to read.
If You’re Looking for a Gripping Murder Mystery Series that You Can’t Put Down, then Keep Reading!
David Randolf Erwin’s morbid fascination for repugnant murderers will be his undoing.
As an esteemed reporter, he blew the lid off William Stephen Martin’s string of grisly murders — all consisting innocent women cut down horrifically at the prime of their lives.
You’d think this would give Erwin enough sense of fulfillment to take a step back and relish in his acclaim. But the draw of murderers proves too strong for him to resist.
A spine-chilling letter arrives at his office from a dying man — someone who credits himself with a far more ghastly crime spree than anything Erwin has ever encountered.
Will Erwin find out who this man is and what horrors he has inflicted on others?
Will Erwin be able to escape from this nightmare before becoming a victim himself?
Find out for yourself in “Time for a Serial Killer: A Lifetime of Murder” by murder-mystery writer R.K. Mullins!
