On this first week of March, I’m hosting author, John Beyer.
John R. Beyer spent nearly ten years in law enforcement in Southern California as a street cop, a training officer and a member of the elite SWAT team. After leaving the force, he continued in public service entering the field of education. During his tenure, he served as classroom teacher, school administrator and district administrator. While in both worlds he earned a Doctorate in School Administration and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
During all those years, he never gave up the passion for writing – both fiction and nonfiction. He has been published in numerous magazines, newspapers and the like for decades on a variety of topics. His latest short stories in the past year can be found in Foliate Oak Literary Magazine (2016) and GNU Journal (2017). He is also the author of two highly praised Internationally known novels – Hunted (2013), Soft Target (2014).
His newest thriller Operation Scorpion (2017- Black Opal Books) is sure to be a hit with its intrigue of a rogue military officer secreting nuclear waste near one of America’s most prestigious Army training facilities.
He has had countless interviews for various radio and blog shows – his most recent with CJEvolutions discussing the current world of terrorism in the United States – which his novel Soft Target detailed.
John is on the constant move of stretching fiction to the limits in his writing and his expertise in the world of law enforcement is clearly seen in his writings.
PI Frank Sanders is “blown away” by the woman who strolls into his office one morning. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also rich and willing to pay whatever it takes for him to find her missing father, world-famous geologist Dr. Stephen Jaspers who went rock hunting in the desert and hasn’t been heard from since. A retired Riverside California Police Department detective, Frank is used to searching for people. He takes the case, assuming it’s a simple missing person. But what he uncovers is more than he bargained for, leading him to suspect that he’s about to be blown away–literally, this time–along with everyone else in Southern California.
