I became interested in writing crime novels while watching crime dramas on television. Although I've been fascinated with the crime solving process and forensic science for years, I began wondering what motivated the characters to do what they do. A lot of people only want to follow the investigation, but I wanted to create stories that told the reader more about the feelings and emotions of the characters. I also wanted to share more about the life of the characters outside of the workplace. I refer to this as the life beyond the badge.

Lieutenant Jake Stalb assists his friend, Sheriff Rusty Stratton solve a baffling case. Is one of the local legends true? Is a Sasquatch-like creature doing the killing? The answer may be more chilling.
Detective Jake Stalb must face the facts that all of the evidence at the crime scene shows that the death was caused by the victim committing suicide, yet his gut is telling him there is more to the story.
A serial killer prows the campus of Casey Armstrong Preparatory Academy. There seems to be no leads pointing to the killer or the motive for the murders. The only thing Detective Jake Stalb can be sure about is that the unknown suspect is copying a killer from many decades ago and across the ocean in England.
