Call for Submissions from Female Law Enforcement Officers - Women Warriors: Stories From the Thin Blue Line (TotalRecall Publications)

Post date: 05 January 2011
I'm looking for female law enforcement officers who would like to see their story published in a new book.

I’m a former Chicago Police Officer and retired FBI agent. I’m writing a book based upon the true experiences of female law enforcement officers. It will be in the form of an anthology, a collection of short stories, written by the women who have lived them. The working title for this creative non-fiction book is Women Warriors, Stories from the Thin Blue Line. Publication date will be Fall 2011; publisher is TotalRecall Publications. I have had three novels published with TotalRecall, the latest will be released Spring 2011. I’ve written more than 100 articles on survival and training that have been published online with Officer.com, LawOfficer.com, and other print magazines.
