TThe years 2014 and 2015 will bring several new titles and re-releases to press from Phelps, along with the third season of DARK MINDS.
In July 2014, Phelps will publish his comprehensive book about vicious serial killer Danny Hembree, THE KILLING KIND. Hembree, who was sentenced to death for the 2009 murder of 17-year-old Heather Catterton, entered a plea of guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Randi Saldana. Some believe Hembree also murdered 30-year-old Deborah Ratchford in 1992, but that charge was dismissed. Phelps promises exclusive information about Hembree, this case, and Hembree’s lifetime of crimes, including additional murders!
Slated for release late in 2014, Phelps explores the Clara Schwartz case in I’D KILL FOR YOU. 20-year-old Clara, a James Madison University student, allegedly “obsessed with assassins and magic,” was sentenced to 48 years for convincing a boy she knew, Kyle Hulbert, to murder her father, renowned DNA scientist Dr. Robert Schwartz. Phelps spent six months interviewing admitted killer and self-proclaimed vampire Kyle Hulbert for this book.
Phelps is working on a book about Emilia Carr, Joshua Fulgham, and the murder of Heather Strong, in Ocala, Florida. If you have any information about this case, please contact Phelps by email immediately.
Phelps is researching two additional cases for future books, including the incredible Harry (Nicole) Vonlee Tiltow case in Michigan and the Jennifer “Hiccup Girl” Mee case in Florida, but is always eager to receive ideas from readers.
Phelps asks that if you’ve survived the wrath of a serial killer or murder attempt on your life, please email him. He is interested in speaking with crime victim survivors for a future project.

A personal note from Phelps:
Thank you for visiting my website. I would like to humbly express my deepest gratitude and thank each and every reader and television viewer personally for buying my books and/or tuning into DARK MINDS. I feel as though I am the luckiest, most blessed person alive. I never take what I do for granted. I look forward to the years to come and the great stories I aim to tell, and the potential cold cases we might shed new light on together. My fans are the most important part of what I do.
Furthermore, several of the cases we have profiled on DARK MINDS have led to genuine, productive tips I have passed along to law enforcement, who tell me these tips have led to potential suspects and “breaks” in the cases. We ARE making a difference! Please continue to watch the series and spread word. The public can solve cold cases!
Please join me on Twitter and Facebook and keep up with everything going on—two places on the web where you can find the latest info about me and what’s going on. Don’t be afraid to send me a greeting or reminder of what you’d like to see on DARK MINDS or the type of crime stories you’d like me to cover in book form. I may not write back to every person that contacts me, but I read every email and letter. Again, thank you for believing!
