Writers On The Beat: Crime Writers and Crime Fighters

By Gavin Reese

Gavin Reese interviews authors and experts to help all writers compose more authentic cops, crimes, and criminals in their stories. During his law enforcement career, Gavin comforted the dying, talked dozens out of suicide, and saved domestic abuse victims from their assailants. He’s taken child rapists, murderers, and human traffickers into police custody, and enjoyed the distinct honor of protecting visiting foreign royalty and national American political figures from both sides of the aisle. He's worked in Patrol, Training, SWAT, Special Investigations, Narcotics, & Dignitary Protection. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writersbeatpodcast/support
