The arrest of Crampton-Brophy is playing out like the events of one of her novels in Oregon, US, with the wife seemingly having been utterly distraught when her husband was first found dead.

Someone probably should have asked her if her own marriage was okay.

Nancy, who has also written sensuous mysteries such as "Hell on the Heart" and "The Wrong Husband", is a self-published author. She was arrested on suspicion of murder on September 5, though cops in her home city of Portland, Oregon, are yet to reveal how they identified her as a suspect in her partner's death. She advised against hiring a hit man to do the dirty work - "an fantastic number of hit men rat you out to the police" - and against hiring a lover.

A novelist in OR, who wrote an online essay titled "How to Murder Your Husband", was arrested for the murder of her husband, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

On June 2, 2018 Brophy was found shot in the kitchen area of the school by his horrified students.

Crompton-Brophy has not filed a plea and her attorney declined to comment to the press.

"Divorce is expensive, and do you really want to split your possessions?", she wrote.

"His answer convinced me he was Mr".

Hutchinson said: 'She said that his side of the bedroom was haunting her'.

Crampton-Brophy, the author of a series of self-published romance novels, coincidentally wrote a post on her blog in November 2011 titled, "How To Murder Your Husband", which has now caught the world's attention because... you know. "She said, 'No, I'm a suspect, ' " without emotion, McConnell said. She wrote she would not want to "worry about blood and brains splattered on the wall", or "remembering lies". "And let me say clearly for the record, I don't like jumpsuits and orange isn't my color". "Please save phone calls for a few days until I can function".

Crampton Brophy also lists motives for killing a husband (financial, cheating, abuser) and ways to commit the crime (guns, knives, poison, hit man).
