About Charles Trachta, Jr

Charlie Trachta was born and raised on Staten Island, NY. After high school, Charlie spent over five years in the U.S Army as a Military Police Officer, mostly with the 15th M.P. Brigade in Germany.

After he was discharged from the Army, he got his college degree from Wagner College, located on Staten Island. There he started to play with words, writing stories and plays about situations that he saw and most of all, lived. Out of college, he was sworn in as NYC Police Officer in January, 1981.

He started out on Staten Island working the NSU, then moving to Brooklyn South for a short stint before landing in Manhattan South where he served until being forced to retired due to line-of-duty injuries. Now, with a wealth of knowledge of crime and people, thanks to his time patrolling the street of NYC, he has many “police and crime” stories to tell.

His critical mind and sharp sense of humor makes it really interesting to read his approach to some situations we see every day in the papers. His stories revolve around crime, revenge and with a hint of sex. Mixing a little reality in his fiction, Charlie tells his stories in a very compelling style, not letting you put down the book before it´s over.

Review by: Lisa Cummings on Aug. 04, 2013 :
Fun summer read! A bit like watching a Law & Order episode, Charlie Trachta writes in cop lingo, making for a gritty NYC crime story. The other two short stories are quirky, fun pieces, good for a summertime reading break.

Review by: denise cavalcante on July 14, 2013 :
I enjoyed reading these stories very much. Very catching. I could not put the “book” down after each story. Charlie is able to write in an easygoing style, not pretentious, writing the way people really talk. Perfect style to read on the Ipad or even the computer.
His writing shows off his experience as a police officer, covering every detail of the “plots” he is writing about. In the story, Remember me, he use interesting dialogue which I enjoy because he does not waste time in tedious descriptions, yet it is still easily understood by non-police type. In the others storied, he used an original and different voice, writing as a journal or an exchange of letters. Even writing with the point of view of one person only, he can catch our attention and develop the plot very nicely. Hope he releases his novel soon.
