YEAH! My Newest Book is Launched!

My life has been crazy busy over the past few months, so this book has taken longer than usual to finish. For me, the most difficult part of writing a book is declaring it finished. The temptation to check everything one last time is addictive. However, there comes a point where I just have to let it go! :o)

Improve Your Memory and Visual Intelligence!

As an internationally certified forensic composite artist for 25 years, my primary area of expertise was creating drawings based on the memories of other people (witnesses to and victims of major crimes). My most valuable tool was an interviewing technique known as a cognitive interview. Many of my publications reflect the knowledge I gained throughout this aspect of my career.

You, too can learn and practice techniques for remembering what you see and translating your memories into artworks.
