After completing 28 years on the LAPD, I ventured out on my own in the free market and began my own private detective agency. After realizing success with my second career, I have begun the challenge of my third career, writing. I first got interested in screen writing and attended several classes at UCLA. I still correspond with other students and continue to put my ideas to paper.

About three years ago I decided to write my memoirs. But I wanted to do it differently. I set about to write an outline that chronicled my years inside LAPD and describing the events, circumstances and people who were responsible for my development and success. It did so by telling stories about other people, their circumstances, their successes and failures. These are stories about criminals and also about cops, while at the same time I tell my story.

I still do my investigative thing, but now I write as a new career, as a stimulus, and as an outlet for my thoughts.
