I am a former police officer, crime analyst, profiler and police trainer. I hold a black belt in Aikido. In the past, I’ve had to make immediate decisions for people in life-threatening situations. I applied the law, martial arts principles, and life lessons, in a logical and ethical manner, and helped victims gain a sense of organization and control over their lives.
I wrote a book entitled Discover the Life You Want to Live which is based on my career and writing experiences. (Published and live on Amazon.com.
I started this blog because I wanted to share my musings and give updates on forthcoming publications. I wanted to delve further into this medium in hopes of inspiring people to solve their own problems, become inspired and write their own stories, and mentor others with their newfound ideas. I am excited to embrace other forms of media during the coming year, am am hopeful to start a You Tube channel with more thoughts and calls to action.
My journey into fiction is the publication of the Caitlin Ferguson Mystery Series based in Colorado. Silver Element and now Book II, Silver Storm, are published and live on Amazon. These women are reflections of the cool characters I’ve met in the past and help Caitlin solve assaults, drug selling gangsters and murders, and getting into trouble a lot in their communities of Boulder and Louisville. I am currently working on Book III in the series, Silver Lore, which will wrap up the story. It is fifteen years in the future from Book II and will cover a lot of territory, magic and mystery combined with a little science fiction sprinkled into the tale. It was fun renewing old friendships with some fellow police officers and crime analysts and basing the book on local characters and crimes jogged from my memory of the work.
I also published the two books in the Silver Rangers Mini-Series. In the first one, Buck Jones, Caitlin and her crew meet him in the Grand Canyon in Silver Storm. This is a short fun romance and science fiction story based on a local character I know. The second book in this series, Frankie & Jamie, details their adventure and romance in the Grand Canyon – characters we also met in the Caitlin Ferguson mysteries. The final book in this series – Rudy Gordon, will come out around the same time as Book III of the Caitlin Ferguson series. These books will finish this story line.
I am excited to wrap up these series and move onto something new and exciting. Thanks to all the avid reads for supporting my writing and the entire published community.
