I’m a lifelong true crime enthusiast and aspiring writer, and nothing fires my interest more than learning about and reading or hearing a detailed account of a gripping true crime case. I enjoy the research, and I enjoy the writing, and both have naturally intersected at this point to take the form of this blog – and now a step further with a podcast of my very own.
Both are a work in constant progress, and I chose a subject that I can write both passionately and knowledgeably about. I like a personal touch, but not too personal, so I will more often than not refer to myself as TTCE (The True Crime Enthusiast). I’ll aim to update this blog at least weekly, with a mixture of case studies for the often overlooked true crime, featuring unsolved cases, accounts of killers serving life and their crimes, various other infamous solved crimes, an honest and unbiased review of true crime books I have either read previously, or have just finished, and podcasts that I dig out or am recommended.
I can now also be found myself in the podcast world – again as The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, so I do hope you will tune in – links to my show can be found on the iTunes link below, or it can be found on the usual radio streaming sites such as Otto Radio, Spotify, or Stitcher, where I like to put out an episode weekly – usually on a Tuesday. There is also a Patreon page that has bonus content and offers available for listeners who may be interested – for even the price of less than a pint!
I like to dig out the obscure and forgotten crimes – not re-cover cases that are almost household names and are already well documented. So you won’t find your Shipman’s, your West’s, your Sutcliffe’s etc here in The True Crime Enthusiast. But you may find some things that are, if not as sensational, then I hope at least as interesting to you as they are to me. And although it is a big wide world out there, I tend to focus upon UK based cases – believe me, there are plenty of them!
