Novelist, screenwriter, and television personality, Paul Bishop is a nationally recognized behaviorist and deception detection expert. A 35 year veteran of the LAPD, his high profile Special Assault Units produced the top crime clearance rates in the city. Twice honored as LAPD’s Detective of the Year, he currently conducts law enforcement training seminars across the country.
As a deception detection consultant, his unique skills make him a valuable resource for private companies faced with potentially damaging in-house data breaches, industrial espionage, or corporate sabotage. His low-key, non-invasive, approach to these challenges has proven consistently successful.
Paul is the author of fifteen novels—including five books in his LAPD Detective Fey Croaker series—and has written numerous scripts for episodic television and feature films. He starred as the lead interrogator and driving force behind the ABC TV reality show Take the Money and Run from producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
A regular speaker at writing conferences, he is also an adjunct professor at the University of California Channel Islands, where he lectures on criminal investigation. He regularly presents his popular seminar, Six-Gun Justice—Western Novels, Movies, and TV Shows, at libraries and other community functions.
With author friend Scott Harris, he is the writer/editor of the critically acclaimed 52 Weeks • 52 Western Novels—A guide to six-gun favorites and new discoveries. The follow-up volumes, 52 Weeks • 52 Western Movies and 52 Weeks • 52 Western TV Shows, will be published in 2018.
His latest book, Lie Catchers, is the first in a new series featuring top LAPD interrogators Ray Pagan and Calamity Jane Randall. The sequel, Admit Nothing, is due in 2018.
