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.  

“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.”  

“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.
