Local author hopes to make a killing with latest work

GREENFIELD — This winter, a Greenfield author’s most recent work features a Christmas-themed take on the classic hard-boiled detective story.

Former Indianapolis Public Schools teacher and Greenfield author Jon Burroughs contributed to the short-story anthology,“Homicide for the Holidays,” a collection of noir-style mystery stories published by the Speed City Chapter of Sisters in Crime. The book is available for purchase at the Indianapolis Barnes and Noble bookstore.

Burroughs has been involved several years with the Sisters in Crime Chapter, a group of local authors who meet monthly to discuss and critique each others’ work, for several years, said the group’s president, Brigitte Kephart. Burroughs also played a key role in providing content to a play the organization put on for Indy Fringe earlier this summer called DEADBEAT, she said.

“Jon takes a fairly active part in contributing to our local Sisters in Crime chapter,” Kephart said. “We appreciate having him on board.”

The Secret TV Producer: from creation to consumption, women are killing it in true crime

The Secret TV Producer is i‘s industry insider. In this new series he’ll be exploring what today’s TV trends and obsessions reveal about Britain

There was a time before Making a Murderer when true crime in US TV circles meant shows like the Discovery ID network’s Fear Thy Neighbour. This kind of TV follows a very simple formula. Over an hour, including ad breaks, someone kills or maims someone they know, the police investigate with redoubtable professionalism, justice is served by the relevant authorities and a bad person is sent to prison or strapped to an electric chair and humanely toasted to death.

You won’t find a lot of mystery in this kind of TV. Another Discovery ID series, Wives With Knives, tells you in the title who died, who did it, and how. There’s seldom much detail either: once you know who died and who did it, all that matters is how and why; and these programmes
