I like to highlight women writers of mystery and a fellow Tucsonan,
A. J. Flick, author of Toxic Rage, has just the background for mystery and true crime. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in journalism and her byline has appeared in numerous news websites and publications across the country, covering everything from news to sports to entertainment.
A. J. covered the case detailed in Toxic Rage, her first book, while reporting for the now-defunct Tucson Citizennewspaper. I remember following the news coverage of the shocking, convoluted yet true story of two ophthalmologists excited to be working together whose professional split ended in a tragic murder. A.J. digs deep into the psyche of each of the men and the strange legal entanglements that followed.
Since leaving daily journalism, she has been working as a freelance journalist, editor, copywriter, screenwriter and campaign communications director. She grew up in Maryland, the Philippines, Indiana and Arizona and loves living in Tucson.
Here’s the link to the book on Amazon, which has it in print, digital and audio:
