Hi Nancy, and thanks for the invitation. I have one novel published, When Pigs Fly, and another, Getting Lucky, about to go into production. In both cases, my protagonists are ex-cops.

What about you?

Hi Nancy, thanks for the invite! I'm going to check out police facebook right now. I'm also going to check out your website. I'm an ex-cop, in another life before raising kids, so law enforcement and crime have always been a love of mine. I work in an independent bookstore right now, and could spend my whole paycheque on the fabulous books and resources we have there. Thanks again for the invite!

Hi Nancy - quick question, if I may - what is your view of The Wire, if you watch it?

Nancy:

I just visited your web site and bookmarked it. What a fantastic resource!

I was wondering if the police officers would mind a writer asking questions of them.

Thanks for friending-up with me.

Hi Nancy. Happy to meet up with you. Even though we are in two different worlds I see we share the same love of crime writers. I also enjoy Sue Grafton and am slowly working my way through her alphabet. Like Andrew, I haven't been on this site for a while. At present I'm updating a novel begun many years ago in Seattle and may well appreciate a few guidelines on procedures for the witness protection plan - for under age kids. Are you game?
All the best, Breanda

Hi Nancy,
Thanks for the invite- like your photo.
I haven't used this website for ages- most remiss of me.
Cheers

Hi, Nancy@!
Good news: my 1999 novel, "Conspiracy!" which was once available as an eBook from ElecgtricUmbrella.com before the site was pirated is finally coming out next March from Zumaya.
I had some good news back in Michigan too, where my short story, "My Enlistment" won first prize and the group gave ma their Writer of the Year award. I'd be glas to paste it in if you'd like to read about an Iraqi war vet. I don't write many short stories, though I have published about fifty. My latest is a 19th century style story about loneliness. It's called "Two Old Men" but I don't know if you relate to old men.\\If I am very lucky you might add me to your list of favorite authors. I think I have a total of three fans. Visit my web site, www.hu.mtu.edu/~hlsachs.
THough I'm not a copy, I used to be under cover. I guess you'd call that in the secfret police. But I did invent a board gfame called "Police State" which you can read about on my web site. It's a great game but we sold the last complete sets in 1980, couldn't handle the marketing and investment for a full court press. Sure way to lose your shirt.

Thanks for the invite! I'm still learning my way around here, but I'll get there!

My, what a chummie site. I don't have much experience with these sorts of things (I signed onto the James Lee Burke message boards, which is fun) so I didn't expect any contact from other users so quickly. Nice. If you're into books about cops and you haven't read 'Calumet City' by Charlie Newton, you might put it on your list. He uses a female protagonist, evidently loosely based on a real Chicago cop, and proceeds to put her in the midst of just about every convention used in cop novels: gangs, corrupt officials, corrupt cops, political assassination...you name it, Charlie shoves it in there. And, for the most part, makes it work. I think it's pretty impressive for a first novel. Oh, and I see that Alafair Burke is also on your friends list. I just finished 'Dead Connection' last night and enjoyed it. It seems that the gene was successfully passed along. Anyway, thank you for adding me to your list. If you read a real humdinger, give a shout.
Nick
