Real Detective. Real Crime. Fiction.

Due to COVID-19, Constable Heidi Stevenson, EOW April 19, 2020, will not be able to receive a full police funeral at this time. As my way of grieving the loss while recognizing the life and career of PC Stevenson, I’m offering my fictional novella, The Funeral, free on Kobo for anyone who wants some insight into the protocols and emotions of a police funeral.

For those of you who do not use Kobo, click below and download your PDF version of The Funeral. Or DM me here with your email address and I will send you a copy.

About The Funeral…

‘The Funeral’, a stand-alone novella or the epilogue to ’10-33 Assist PC’, brings us into the intimate world of those most closely affected in the days following the loss of one of their own. Written by a Real Detective, The Funeral walks us through to the end of watch in this poignant finale to a heroic life cut short in the line of duty.
