Locals fondly recall author Ann Rule

Published: Friday, July 31, 2015, 12:01 a.m.

Around the world, Ann Rule’s fans have devoured her true-crime books. In Snohomish County, the bestselling author made friends in law enforcement and found murder cases to write about. Those friends remember a kind woman who cared about victims.
“She was a good person. She deserves to be remembered,” said Mark Bond, a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy and Mill Creek City Councilman.
Rule, who died Sunday at 83, was best known for “The Stranger Beside Me,” about serial killer Ted Bundy. She and Bundy had once worked together at a crisis hot line in Seattle.  ::snipping3::

“She had such a memory of names, for all the people she had written about, and the families she dealt with. She kept in touch with a lot of the victims’ families,” Scharf said. “We ended up talking about different cases we were working on, and I suggested to her that we had a pretty unusual case in Snohomish County.”  ::snipping3::

“It always came back to her caring about victims,” Wright said. “When she wrote, she wanted to make sure she didn’t victimize the victims.”
Bond agrees. “It wasn’t all about her. It was about others,” he said.

RIP Friend

I've read nearly everything she has of a kind, she was.
