How did you know you wanted to be an author? I had always considered being an author, but it wasn’t until I became disabled that I devoted the majority of my effort into writing Humane Policing. It was my way and purpose to help positively affect my community and profession.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Write when you are inspired, also keep materials in close proximity to you to help foster that inspiration. When times become difficult don’t settle for work that is below your standard, just to get a piece done.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?I would think about my topic of the chapter, watch an inspirational movie that provoke emotion, then I would just write. After the idea or jest of what I was writing was down I come back to it at least a day later before I started revising and editing the original work.
What message to you want readers to remember?I want to enlighten readers to the struggles and challenges of law enforcement to promote a better understanding of how and why law enforcement takes action. I also want the reader to take away what they should expect and demand of law enforcement.
