    Ann Rule changed my life. She turned my beliefs and blind trust upside down and in so doing, she literally rocked my world. What an intelligent, go-getter done woman she was in her prime.
    She taught me about serial killers, most notably, Ted Bundy.
    She taught me about mothers who kill their children.
    Ann taught me about obsessive men who will stalk their exes to death over their child support payments ( and how the women ignored the obsessively bad behavior while dating).

    In short, Ann Rule's early books changed my way of thinking that everyone is nice and safe, in a way, and helped me grow up in many important ways that my parents had always sheltered me from knowing.

    R.I.P., dear Ann. I always thought you would " be there" for the true crime readers.
    I hope the end of your life was safer and happier than I fear it may have been. You deserve every blessing that eternity has.

    Ann's books kept me up many long nights when I was younger.
    I think she taught us much.
    RIP and Godspeed

    RIP Dear Ann- wow- for me... what an icon.

    This is a sad day made more sad by the circumstances police say she was in with her children.

    Boys... girls, sons, daughters- makes no matter- what matters is they were supposed to love and protect her as she had done for them as young children.

    It is so very tragic, any way you look at it.

    Same here. I think I've read all of her books and the one that stands out the most for me was Small Sacrifices.
    I may have to read it again to see if it still has that impact.

    So sad.
    Ann kept so many of those murdered stories alive.
    Be the most brilliant color in the box!
