Police Sergeant & Author
I've been in law enforcement for twenty years, seven with the Milwaukee PD and thirteen with the San Francisco PD. I am the author of two nonfiction books about urban law enforcement. I play sand volleyball in my spare time and am slightly better than you might think.
400 THINGS COPS KNOW
After striking out with 90 literary agents, I found Linden Publishing in Fresno CA, who put out my first book. It's a collection of facts, anecdotes, and reflections from police work. I've had excellent teachers on the job and I paid attention when they said and did smart things. Figured out a few things myself too, mostly the hard way.
400 Things Cops Know, was nominated for an Agatha Award and won the 2015 Silver Falchion award for best nonfiction crime reference.
A sort-of sequel to 400 Things Cops Know, but with a short essay format and an emphasis on specialty units such as Homicide, CSI, and SWAT.
