I developed of love of writing when I started working on promotional / leadership guide for police. I am trying to do my part to enhance policing at every level. I write about what I see and what I hope to improve. I am passionate about police leadership and have found that everything the police are taught is highly theoretical and has little to no practicality for the actual police officers and supervisors.

The big project for the future is a complete reference of practical application of law enforcement concepts for police supervisors. Instead of scholars writing vaguely about the results of some study; I will demonstrate how the things we have learned actually are applied on the street to enhance public safety.

The writing of the promotional guides spawned me into writing “Eliot”, a fiction novel, in which I intertwined my real life experiences in the Baltimore Police Department with fantasy and created what I hope will be something people appreciate and I can spin off into a prequel and sequel.

In the process of trying to get “Eliot” known to people, I came across the world of book reviewing. It is hard to get your book reviewed and is a time consuming endeavor. So, I decided I would help out what other authors I could by giving reviews.

So, here we are. If you get your book praised by me, I guarantee that it is a great book. My standard will be tough, but its praise will be something to be proud of.
