Any order over $20.00 will receive free shipping and a free gift. I will also be putting up some images of one-of-a-kind Market Purses and Mini Market Purses at a reduced cost in the coming weeks so keep checking back.
I’ve had a life-long interest in true crime ever since, in my late teens, I read the Manson books, Helter Skelter and The Family. The first trial I attended in person was the Robert Blake murder trial in 2005. I wrote about my experience on Internet crime forums, where many people were interested in the Blake case and debating it. All the participants used Internet handles. For myself, I chose the name Sprocket, my all-time favorite kitty. In 2007, I attended the first Phil Spector trial and started Trials & Tribulations. I kept writing as Sprocket. While I write under a pen name, I use my real name in court and while reporting.
In January 2011, the Los Angeles County Superior Court officially recognized me as a member of the media.
I also have a small seasonal sewing business, Betsy Ross Linens. I enjoy gardening and reading.
In 2019 I stopped my public service covering the LA County Superior Court and entered a new career path.
