Would love -to start a discussion on serial killers. We are 2 authors that have just published their first novel (Murder in Twos and Threes), wherein we have included a serial killer. We based him on a lot of research on psychology, sociopaths and psychopaths. In the book we had to start him very early, as a child, as being abused and neglected. The book we’re working on now has a female serial killer. Not so sure how many, statistically, have been “caught” in the real world. In our book we’re trying to twist her personality, again-from childhood-but this time by a means of guilt, social battering, etc. So with all that in mind, we’d love to hear from anyone regarding the “personality” of the serial killer.
