I’m a lifelong true crime enthusiast and aspiring writer, and nothing fires my interest more than learning about and reading 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.
It’s my first blog, so its a work in constant progress and a bit of an experiment to see how writing a blog goes. 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 refer to myself as TTCE (The True Crime Enthusiast). I’ll update this 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 always tend to dig out the obscure, the 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 etc here. 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, TTCE tends to focus upon UK based cases – believe me, there are plenty of them!
Thanks for reading, and please feel free to share. In fact, I welcome and encourage it. I also welcome any feedback and comments, whats popular and whats not etc. I will always respond to any queries or comments anybody may have, and can be contacted at:
