About the author (1995)

This account of the murder of Penny Scaggs and the trial of her husband, Roger, is the ninth published nonfiction book written by Clint Richmond. His 1995 Selena!, the tragic story of the murder of the young Tejano music star, was #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2005 collaboration, Red Star Rogue, was also a New York Times bestseller. Richmond, a former Dallas Times Herald news reporter, covered the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the trial of Jack Ruby for the murder of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. He was assigned to federal and state courts and law enforcement beats in Dallas for a number of years. Later, as a freelance journalist, he covered the Rocky Mountain and West Coast regions for such publications as People magazine and has been a contributing writer to Time, Newsweek, and numerous other periodicals. The author lives with his wife, also a freelance writer, in Austin, Texas.
