Coming Oct 2016

DETECTIVE JACK MURPHY IS BACK—on the trail of a criminal mastermind who kills for profit and tortures for pleasure. In Jack Murphy’s experience, the killers who blend in are the hardest to catch. But none are as elusive—or efficient—as Mr. Smith. A man of average height, weight and build, Mr. Smith is as ordinary as his name. Which makes it easy for him to get close to his targets. To kill without conscience. To use every weapon at his disposal to raise the stakes in a global game of terror and death. Mr. Smith is no ordinary killer. But Jack Murphy is no ordinary cop . . .

Q&A

I wrote an underground newsletter for the police department where I was a detective. The purpose was to poke fun and act as a morale builder. I ‘published’ by leaving 20 or 30 copies on tables and desks. Readers were making copies and sending them to other law enforcement agencies such as the FBI Academy and the U.S. Secret Service Academy. I was hooked. But it wasn’t until I caught a serial killer that my writing career took off.
I’ve not taken any formal writing classes. my idea of classes was reading many books written by authors in my genre. I’ve taught myself the hard way–by writing and making mistakes and rewriting. Also, I have a great editor who has acted as my mentor. Writing is mostly about patience, discipline, and just doing it.
During my 30 years in law enforcement and working in the courts I have had many crazy experiences. They say “write what you know”. I would add to that “and make up what you don’t.” I can’t admit to any particular experiences from my books because the statute of limitations has not run out. haha
You can contact me through this website. I check the site frequently and will post your answer as soon as possible.
