I retired from police work and for the first six months, I sat down and started writing my first book. Each day, I wrote a few pages then golfed. After six months, I finished my book and realized I'd taken twelve strokes off my handicap. I self published the book and became a Private Detective.
I got myself a New York Agent for my second book and a year later she quit on me for health reasons. Now the search is back on. I've written five more books and I'm truly motivated to get my writings into libraries and book stores.
