Firearms in Fiction

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on August 24, 2015

Crime Novel

Kristin Durfee, CSI and author, will: 1) teach you correct types and terminology of firearms, 2) tell you what the crime lab does, and doesn’t, do, and, 3) how it all ties together in court and in your book. Durfee says, “Don’t risk throwing your reader out of your story because an incorrect term was used. Learn how to properly write about firearms, the laboratory’s role in solving your character’s death, and how to accurately portray courtroom testimony with an expert witness.” Durfee will share her knowledge and experience with writers looking to make accurate portrayals of forensics in fiction. She’ll discuss what the firearms lab does and doesn’t do, the role of the expert in court cases, as well as some of her most interesting cases.
