In January 2020, Carlisle Legacy Books, LLC, published Dr. Al Carlisle's four books in "The Development of the Violent Mind" series.
In September we will publish “The Toughest Prison of All” by Floyd C. Forsberg.
Our goal is to promote the legacy of Dr. Carlisle and help people understand what makes good people do bad things. Dr. Carlisle believed that if we could understand this, we could protect kids from becoming victims of serial killers and sex offenders. We could also stop kids from becoming serial killers. If we recognize the steps, we can get people help. We can make a difference.
We are a small press that seeks other works to help people understand more about violent predators.
As Dr. Carlisle wanted to write fiction, we will also consider speculative fiction.
