The Valley, LAPD Crime Fiction

Hey everyone. I'm just an amateur writer right now, but am hoping to one day actually, possibly, Lord willing, make a buck at it. Literally. If I got paid $1 for something I wrote, I'd be a happy man. This is the link to a series that I have begun writing about LAPD patrol officers. If anyone is interested, please feel free to check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks.

- Bill…

Glad to have your friend request Bill. Joe Friday was definitely a man of everyday of the week. He made the words "Just the facts ma'am." into the cliché that it is.
