Re: Ann’s musings on writers who become scammers…how about scammers who become writers?
Remember crazy conwoman-turned-literary agent/fake writers’ conference organizer Melanie Mills, a.k.a. Elisabeth von Hullessem, a.k.a. Lisa Hackney, currently going by the rather unwieldy sobriquet of Raswitha Elisabeth Melanie Mills (Remmi for short)? Remember how, having finally been extradited back to Arkansas from Canada to face the six charges (including first degree battery and aggravated assault) she dodged in a 1999 bail jump, she attempted to shop a manuscript called The MM Journals, supposedly based on her life story? Since she sent it to legitimate agents, it’s reasonable to suppose that her ambition was commercial publication.
She seems to have gone a different route.
Be sure to check out the photos at the bottom of the page. I think it’s a safe bet that she is not the blonde in the bustier.
