I was a SAPOL member for 32 years and after retiring at 55 (ex Sen Sgt) I was a Court Sheriff Officer at Elizabeth Magistrates court. In parallel I served in the Reserve with Army Intelligence for 15 years.
I joined a writers group when I was seventy and over the past ten years I have had a lot of material published. Cops,Crooks, Courts and Spooks has much social history and as well my story…It doesn’t matter if you’re not published, just write and keep writing what you like – whether it be fiction or non fiction. That exercise keeps the grey cells working. A sequel to my last book is launched on 8th November this year!
I also buy books and sell them, or give some away to needy people who like to read.
