I am father and grandfather. A retired New York City police officer that spent most of my adult life in law enforcement. It was a great adventure and I loved every day patrolling the city of New York in a police car, fighting crime, helping the sick, disadvantaged and arresting Felons, who committed crimes against innocent victims!

I found my second love, writing, when you write a book.

Rookie Cop - Book cover
Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated at the age of thirty-nine on April 4, 1968 at 6:01 p.m. Rookie Cop Marvin Levey had his whole life changing experience with only one day on the job as a New York City police officer. When crowds of over one hundred thousand rioters overwhelmed the police force. New York City had no choice; they needed every able body police officer to maintain law and order. They needed much more law enforcement! There were no more police officers available to stop the riots.
