Plot Synopsis

Nancy Crampton-Brophy seemed to have a knack for writing about murder. The Portland-based romance-thriller novelist authored books about relationships that were tumultuous while using seductive men on the covers to lure in her readers. Often, her books featured women protagonists who fantasized about killing their own husbands or fleeing their husbands and faking their own deaths. And then, on June 2, 2018 in a shocking turn of events, Brophy, 72, shot and killer her own husband, Daniel, a beloved chef and instructor at the Oregon Culinary Institute. She was soon arrested and charged with second-degree murder in September 2018, and was found guilty in May 2022 after a seven-week trial. She was sentenced to life in prison.
