Let's wind back to the glory days of print. In the '70s, Megan Norris was a cadet journalist who was told she wouldn't last until Christmas because the other 'token girl cadet' on the team was prettier. Today, Megan is a court reporter and bestselling author who has seen some of the most gruesome cases you could imagine. From reporting on battered women to covering high-profile cases such as the kidnapping and murder of Jaidyn Leskie, she says it's not a job that makes you popular. Nonetheless, the journalist shares her advice for aspiring true crime writers who want to hear the very worst things people are capable of, and report the greatest show on earth.
