After the conviction of Charles Manson (1934- ) for conspiring to murder seven people and the publication of Vincent Bugliosi’s book Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders, people from around the world wanted to write an official history of Manson and his family. Lynette Fromme (1948- ) fielded these requests for information and vetted offers from publishing houses to the rights of the true history of the group. Writing in coded language, she warns a potential biographer to stick to the true story of Manson and not give in to the media hype surrounding him and his followers.
