Here in this short essay, he tells of his journey to & some glimpses of, his life as a police officer. It is a great piece of writing & is both inspiring & honest. He tells it like it is. At least like it is for him. This is not a story of "action & adventure" (although it includes bits of both), but more just man telling about why & how he became a police officer and what it means to him. You feel it. At least I do, when I read it.
I say, in the spirit of full disclosure, I have become of fan of Schaffer's fiction & felt I had to to read this. I was fortunate that it was free when I got it in the Kindle Store. It is 99 cents right now. I had not yet read any of his other work yet when I got this. I say now that I have read this, and some of his other work, I would gladly pay a buck for this essay. More, for a collection of his essays, I would gladly pay $10 (and I really enjoy reading well-written essays/articles. Especially those taken from the writer's life).
It is a refreshing to read a writer who writes from his heart, while still maintaining his craft. I am sucker for good writing in almost any genre. Bernard J Schaffer is an excellent writer & storyteller, whether telling stories from his life or those he creates from whole cloth (or wherever he gets them from).
Here is an excerpt from his essay "BJ Schaffer is Dead" that gives a good taste of the flavor of his writing, & is a nice segue to Way of the Warrior (it is from the last paragraph of that essay, which you can find easily using any good search engine):
"Me? I'm a guy who worked at a gas station to make ends meet while I went to the Police Academy. I scrubbed toilets, worked landscaping and mopped laboratories late at night. At 34 years old, I'm a police detective who makes his living putting bad people in dark places. I'm a father to two children, and I can tell you that their love and admiration means more than the vacant adulation of the masses on any level."
Not only do I believe him, I feel I learn from him, both about writing & about life. That is valuable. Check out his work.
