Romance novelist, Nancy Crampton-Brophy, has been arrested for murdering her husband, years after making a career out of writing steamy fictions about the wrong men.
One of her now infamous works, an essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband,” aptly named after its subject matter, was published in 2011.
According to Oregon Live, police took in the 68-year-old to the Multnomah County Detention Center, last week, after alleging she fatally shot Daniel Brophy, her husband of 27 years.
“As a romantic suspense writer, I spend a lot of time thinking about murder and, consequently, about police procedure,” Brophy wrote in the 2011 essay.
“After all, if the murder is supposed to set me free, I certainly don’t want to spend any time in jail.”
