Weisheit (1984), in his research on incarcerated female homicide offenders, found that between 1981 and 1984, 77% of offenders had been unemployed at the time of their offense. He reported that the median age during the time frame was 27 years, that 65% of if the female offenders were black, and that 76% had children. Although the percentage of female serial offenders having children is comparable to female homicide offenders in general, some interesting differences exist between the two groups. For example, the female serial offenders were older (median age 31) and 95% were white. Most of these women went on killing for several years before they were finally apprehended. The killing period for this group of women ranged from a few months to over 34 years.
A writer — and, I believe, generally all persons — must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.

Since the 1940s or even earlier, there has been a strange light phenomenon observed in the Hessdalen Valley, Norway. The spectacle has a
form of white or yellow light of unknown origin standing or floating
above the ground level. Between 1981 and 1984, the lights were observed
up to 20 times per week but since then, the activity has decreased and
now the lights are observed about 10–20 times per year. Despite ongoing
research and numerous working hypotheses, there is no convincing
explanation for the origin of these lights.
