A ‘Dexter Killer’ (Devil’s Cinema) Down Under

MELBOURNE — I’m thrilled to see The Devil’s Cinema, my narrative on the “Dexter Killer” Mark Twitchell case, will be published in Australia.

The good people at Penguin Australia have snapped up the rights to release my book in both Australia and New Zealand.

While I was born and raised in Canada, I’ve been living in Australia for the past few years, so this is fabulous news to see this story now shared in my two homes.

There are a few changes to the Aussie release: the cover and subhead have both been altered slightly.

(Apparently Australians are more familiar with the case being called the “Dexter Killer” than by the man behind the notorious moniker, Mark Twitchell.)

In any event, any good Aussie bookstore will have a copy by the August 22 release day. It will be available locally as an eBook too.

CBS 48 Hours Mystery: Screenplay for Murder

EDMONTON — The Mark Twitchell “Dexter killer” story will get another treatment on American TV this weekend with CBS 48 Hours Mystery expected to broadcast its “Screenplay for Murder” episode.

A producer for the true crime documentary series sat in on the murder trial but waited until now to finally air the show’s take on the filmmaker convicted of luring and murdering a stranger, Johnny Altinger, in a plot that replicated parts of the Dexter TV series.

Here’s a preview:

The CBS 48 Hours Mystery episode is expected to run on Saturday, February 11 at 10pm (ET/PT).

Dateline NBC has previously run a two-hour special on Mark Twitchell — titled “Deadly House of Cards” — while ABC 20/20 and CBC’s the fifth estate (“Murder, He Wrote”) have also covered the case extensively.

My non-fiction book on the case, The Devil’s Cinema, will be released across North America on March 27.

Pre-orders are available at the following online retailers:
