So, here it goes. I'm a Deputy Sheriff who previously worked Narcotics in the San Francisco Bay Area. During that time, I witnessed or was part of some of the scariest things we see in law enforcement. From those experiences, I have created a four book series. The series is based on Detective Bill Dix and his counterpart, Steve Petersen. Full of suspense and intrigue, the Detective Bill Dix Series has been a best seller in crime fiction, police procedural, and thriller categories.

I'm also a true-crime author with five international best-selling books on serial killers from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. I'm an investigator by trade and I use my skills to extract every known piece of information on the targets I select and then write a fast-paced story about the target.

I write short stories and poetry, too. It's a way for me to release stress and to give the general public a great insight into the life of a deputy sheriff.

Most of my proceeds are donated to special groups such as JDRF, StopHungerNow, Cancer Research, military folks, and the families of fallen heroes.
