I just like to write.  I am a former homicide detective with a lot of stories to tell. If you stick around you will read real stories about what it is really like to be a detective. How cases are really solved and the toll they take on everyone around them.  I think those stories will surprise you. But you will also read stories about many other things.  Childhood memories, on being a father, on life in general. Stick around and you might just learn more than you thought you could. 

If you get a chance take a look at my story "The Body", about a murder case I worked. Or check out my "Convict Chronicles" which contains many short stories about people I have met during my career in law enforcement. Or if you want to laugh check out "Blonde Moments". That's an ongoing series about crazy things that my daughter says. You won't believe most of it. And finally if you just want to see what life here on Wattpad is like check out "Chasing Wattpad". Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a good experience here.

I have no interest in publishing professionally (not that anybody would read me). Though to be honest I don't know if I tell myself that just to take the pressure off writing, or because it is really true. Who knows? It's a mystery. Whatever the case, that works for me right now.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Find time to write. But not so much that you do not have the time to experience something worth writing about." - ME

"Life is tough. It's even tougher when you're stupid." - John Wayne

"Sometimes it's the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine." - from the movie Imitation Game

"The most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller
