"Kathryn Casey has the roots, the guts, and the talent...She takes her place as one of the best," Ann Rule
As an award-winning journalist and the author of six true crime books, I've spent twenty years writing about real cases, real people, real murders. It's been an amazing education on law enforcement and the criminal mind.
Now I've expanded into fiction, as the author of the Sarah Armstrong mystery series. It all began with SINGULARITY, the pulse-pounding tale of a Texas Ranger hot on the trail of the strangest killer to ever stalk the Lone Star State. BOOKLIST magazine named it one of the Best Crime Novel Debuts of 2009! The thrills continued with the second in the series, BLOOD LINES, this time transporting readers inside two intense investigations, one involving a young superstar hunted by a bizarre stalker.
Are you ready for the third in the series? LIBRARY JOURNAL gave THE KILLING STORM a star, the highest of honors, and named it one of the best books of 2010! PUBLISHERS WEEKLY said, "Casey's turbulent third mystery featuring Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong draws the criminal profiler into a breathless drama as scary as a hurricane's eye.... a terrifying cat-and-mouse game develops, pointing to more stormy weather ahead for Sarah, in the best in the series to date."

Those of you dedicated to true crime, don't worry! I'm not abandoning you. I plan to continue digging into sensational cases, pulling all the evidence together, doing my best to answer all the questions, not just who, what, how and where, but the most important, why?
My most recent true crime book debuted in 2012. On Waco's Matt Baker case, DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS tells the heartbreaking story of a minister who led a double-life, the horrifying murder of a young mother and a frustrated family who had to wage their own battle to bring their loved one justice.
What's next? Available for preorder, my next book comes out in January 2015. This is a major endeavor, one that's taken nearly three years. DELIVER US: THREE DECADES OF MURDER AND REDEMPTION IN THE INFAMOUS I-45/TEXAS KILLING FIELDS. South of Houston going into Galveston, since the 1970s, thirty girls and young women have been killed. Many of their murders remain unsolved. I'm investigating and writing about the cases and the people involved.
Now that Deliver Us is in New York with my editor, I'm researching two more true crime books. The first is Houston's Stiletto Murder Case. Ana Trujillo Fox, beautiful and with a magnetic personality, killed professor/scientist Alf Stefan Andersson in June 2013. Her weapon: her stiletto shoe. Why? She says it was self-defense. But is that the truth?
In 2013, someone executed three people, two of them Texas prosecutors. In December, I'll be in the courtroom working on a book on one of the most frightening cases of the decade, the murders of the Kaufman County district attorney, his wife, and the DA's top prosecutor. At first there were rumors of a white supremacist hitman. But police say the truth is even stranger, a killer who once had a courthouse office, one who harbored a powerful grudge.
Anyone with information on either the Kaufman County murders or the stiletto case, please contact me at email@example.com.
