Bio: Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I enjoyed working as a policeman, a sheriff, and a marshal. Vivid memories remain i.e.: Charles Manson and his gang; S.L.A. gang with Patty Hearst; and the Black Panthers gang. Then a few infamous souls who decided to work alone: The Hillside Strangler; Richard Ramirez a.k.a. the Night Stalker; and the five to ten daily murder preliminary hearings in the L.A. Criminal Courts Building. I'll never forget driving my first black and white to the L.A. academy with the radio blaring: "murder now; robbery now; burglary now; murder now!" Then and there I knew L.A. was truly exciting indeed! Twenty years later my immediate family had accumulated 100 years as Los Angeles peace officers. I had just retired as a Los Angeles County deputy marshal. Back in 1974, I was allowed unlimited admission into the private A.B. Perkins Historical California Scholar Library at the main L.A. County Depository in Valencia, CA. My 1974 real estate license led me to an interest in the old California ranchos. The ranchos boundaries are still outlined on the county maps. I soon found a lifelong passion for California's historical past. I managed to earn a Masters Degree in Business Management from the University of Redlands, and taught Police Science Classes at Long Beach City College. I wrote The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Badge History. My memberships included the L.A. Footprinters, a club my grandfather helped to found with Sheriff Eugene Biscailuz. I have also authored an internet book called Badge Hallmarks for Police Collectors. I worked nights and weekends as a Pari-Mutuel Machine Supervisor for almost 20 years. My wife, Elizabeth, who is my best friend and editor, and I live in sunny San Diego County. We have a small court reporting business there. The sons are grown and gone. Currently I am engrossed in a sequel novel.
