My metamorphosis from police officer to writer presents at first glance as a complete career change, yet at the heart of both roles lie observation and communication; a parallel that makes the former the perfect training ground for the latter. Learning what makes people tick is fundamental to understanding why someone commits crime. Watching, listening, and understanding are vital skills, as are finding the right words to communicate with a witness, a suspect, a victim; before presenting a compelling story to a court. My audience today are readers, not judge and jury, but the challenge is no less great; readers are perhaps even more skilled in separating fact from fiction.
