Who is behind True Crime Lists?

I’m Ben Oakley, a bestselling true crime and wellbeing author, with nine years of experience in the publishing industry. My first book foray into true crime was published in 2019; a thesis on the prevalence of serial killers in the year 1978.

Since then, I’ve authored over 30 true crime books, and discussed the subject on radio shows, podcasts, and other blogs. My books include the Bizarre True Crime series and Monstrous Serial Killers. I’m currently working on a true crime documentary film with my company Twelvetrees Camden!

I’m a professional writer who spills out 10,000 words/day on average. True Crime Lists was originally my outlet for more content than I could ever have put in my books. It has since grown to become something far greater than I could ever have imagined, and that’s down to you.

Thank you for being here, but more importantly, stay safe!
