Meet the Author

Ron Franscell is a rising true-crime figure, a seasoned traveler and a Texan. Ron has ridden the wide range between journalism, fiction and nonfiction with extraordinary success. Ron’s third book, an intimate nonfiction originally entitled "FALL: The Rape and Murder of Innocence in a Small Town," was published in January 2007 and established him as one of the most provocative new voices in narrative nonfiction. FALL (and its best-selling 2008 paperback edition entitled THE DARKEST NIGHT) is the true story of two girls, two men and an entire town — all changed by one harrowing night. But this suspenseful, atmospheric and moving account is more than a typical true-crime yarn; it’s a classic tragedy told by someone who was there, about how the past echoes poisonously into the present — for individuals, for families, for entire communities.
