The steamy, sinful plots of Crampton-Brophy's books, along with her on-the-nose treatise about spousal murder, add a weird twist to the case.

Students were just beginning to file into the building for class when they found him bleeding in the kitchen, KATU2 news reported. He died at the scene. The school later held a candlelight vigil attended by hundreds of students in his memory. She is the author of romantic suspense novels and, in a 2011 blog post, outlined various motives and methods of killing a husband. "Right", she wrote on her author bio. The Huffington Post also states Nancy's quotes to a blog in 2012 regarding her inclination towards romantic suspense stories.

She penned "The Wrong Series" with books entitled "The Wrong Cop", "The Wrong Husband", "The Wrong Seal", "The Wrong Lover", "The Wrong Hero".

"For my facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate".

Daniel Brophy, 63, who was found dead in the Oregon Culinary Institute in Portland, had worked there as a chef for over 10 years.
