Police in Oregon have arrested a romance novelist—who once penned an essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband”—for allegedly killing her husband.

In June, police responded to the Oregon Culinary Institute—where 63-year-old Daniel Brophy worked as a chef—to discover the man dead of a gunshot wound.

Following months of investigation, police have determined that 68-year-old novelist Nancy Crampton-Brophy is the prime suspect in the murder, and on September 5 she was arrested, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Crampton-Brophy is a self-published author of several books, including “The Wrong Husband” and “The Girl Most Likely To.”

According to Fox4-TV, Crampton-Brophy now faces charges of murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
