|Off to the pokey -- well, not really|
I wrote a little about my adventures in all things Law Enforcement over at the Poisoned Pen Press blog (see Writing at the Thin Blue Line if you're interested).
Here are some photos from that weekend. It was an invaluable opportunity to marinate in the world of cops, firefighters, and rescue personnel for a little while, and I came away with an enhanced respect for the challenges of the work and the commitment of the people who choose these professions.
Below is a picture of the official Writer's Police Academy t-shirt. It reminds me of the one Richard Castle wears on Castle. Maybe some of his fictional star quality will rub off on me. Who knows? Regardless, it's a fantastic shirt.
