Personal Quote:

[on fictional characters based on him:] What they've done is misinterpret my books. If I watch Profiler (1996), it drives me crazy when she [Ally Walker, as Waters] gets this look on her face, and she has these flashbacks and starts seeing blood and gore. [, 8 July 1999] See more »


The character of Jason Gideon in 'Criminal Minds (2005)' is based on him. One of the most notable similarities is that they both predicted that an Unsub would have a stutter. See more »
