Patricia Cornwell Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Patricia Cornwell (born Patricia Carroll Daniels; June 9, 1956) is a modern American crime writer. She’s widely known for composing a favorite series of novels featuring the heroine Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a medical examiner. Her novels have sold over 100 million copies. The Scarpetta novels contain an excellent deal of detail on forensic science. The novels are thought to have affected the development of popular TV series on forensics, both fictional, like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and documentaries, including Cold Case Files.[citation needed] Other important themes in the Scarpetta novels contain well-being, individual safety and protection, food, family, as well as the emerging sexual self discovery of Scarpetta’s niece. Frequently, disagreements and secret exploitation by Scarpetta’s co-workers and staff are involved in the storyline and also make the homicide cases more complicated. Although scenes from your novels occur in various places across America and (less commonly) globally, they center throughout the city of Richmond, Virginia. You’ll find two remarkable fashion shifts in the Scarpetta novels. Occasions are still narrated in the perspective of the killers. Before Blow Fly the events are seen through Scarpetta’s eyes just, as well as other points of view simply appear in letters that Scarpetta reads. Cornwell shifted back to a first person view in the Scarpetta novel Port Mortuary (2010).

1I don't believe any politician could or should take away the American people's right to bear arms, but I refuse to vote for any party that interferes in my personal choices, and tries to tell me who to be in love with or which God I should pray to.
2I'm still a journalist at heart. I need to see, hear, smell and feel something so I can convey the sensations to my reader. If I want to read about a dangerous new firearm, I go see an expert who show me how to use it and shows me the damage it can do. I've never had any interest in scuba-diving, but because in 'Flesh and Blood' Scarpetta dives off a boat and has a scene 100 feet underwater, I had to do it too.
3I find that people now have such short attention spans that I have to try really hard to keep the suspense going, so they don't have a reason to put down my book and read 20,000 Tweets instead. I constantly think about how people are reading and how they are managing their time, so I tailor my books to fit. Each chapter used to be twenty pages, but now it's ten pages. The books are still as long, just presented in shorter increments, like scenes in a movie.
4I write about crime, and my books are about the science of death - but also and much more so, about the art of life. When I sit down at my desk and write Scarpetta, I step through the looking glass and into her shoes. It's my job to endure if she's having a lousy day. I present her with a crime and make her life a misery by withholding information that I possess, but which she has to discover painstakingly, over the course of the book.
5Enlightenment; do no harm; and leave the world a better place than you found it.
6To almost die is to know that one day you will, and to never again feel the same about anything.
7When I was at college there were two things I vowed I'd never do. One was go to a funeral and the other was deal with computers. And then I ended up being a computer programmer in a morgue.
8It is important to me to live in the world I write about. If I want a character to do or know something, I want to do or know the same thing
