Publisher info

Mike Smitley was born in Kansas City, Missouri, but spent much of his youth on a cattle farm in southern Missouri. He is a retired police chief with over thirty years of service in all capacities of law enforcement. He currently resides in Missouri with his wife and two sons. He has a broad base of experience in all fields of public safety and municipal government.
Mike has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master's degree in Administration of Public Affairs. His experience as a chief of police affords him a perspective on homicide investigation not normally seen by most homicide investigators. In his novels, Mike expertly blends his insight into municipal governments, law enforcement, and homicide investigative techniques specifically into thrilling suspense novels about the most difficult, complex and challenging types of homicide investigation facing law enforcement today.
Mike can be reached at his web-site: www.fatherspress.com. or by e-mail at mike@fatherspress.com for information about any of his current novels, IMPLIED CONTRACT, PREY, DEAD FILES, GHOST HUNT, OUR MISSING and THE ENGLISH MAN.
