Allow Me to Introduce Myself
My name is Humpty, pronounced with an "umpty" . . . OOPS! I'm sorry, wrong Blog. Let's try that again.
My name is Michael C. Lee, but my friends call me "Mike". I am a former command officer with the Detroit Police Department. After 20 years of service, I jetted up; opting for the trappings of civilian life. That's right, I spend a great deal of my time these days as a husband, and a father. Incidentally, I am a cherrleader's dad, so I guess that would make me a cheerleader, too- get it? (You see, my daughter's a cheerleader, so I cheer for her when she's cheerleading . . . oh, forget it). I am an adjunct instructor for ITT Tech, and am also the former Chair of their School of Criminal Justice in Troy. I write as often as I can OR whenever I am hit with the urge to do so.
My first book, Chandler Park Drive, (named for a street in Detroit) intrduces the reader to the central character, Denard Blake, a Detroit Police Narcotics cop. The story takes place in Detroit and at the height of the War on Drugs. Denard and his comrades work with the DEA to bring down a local drug lord. Denard has to juggle his police life with a complicated personal life that includes a wife and a sultry mistress. In the end- as one reviewer put it- there will be more twists and turns in this story than the actual Chandler Park Drive itself.
I am currently finishing my second book entitled, Overturned. Denard Blake is back as a sergeant with DPD Homicide. His investigation into the murders of a young woman and her two small children leads Denard and his courageous crew to Thelmon Kirkwood. Kirkwood is a first-time convicted felon working dilligently to get his drug conviction OVERTURNED. Like Chandler Park Drive, this story is long on: action, dialogue, sex, suspense, intrigue, and surprise. It is a gripping tale that will have you laughing, crying, and sitting on the edge of your seat.
I look forward to interacting with such a distinguished group of crime/fiction writers. Take care, and if I haven't met you yet (in the flesh, that is), I look forward to meeting you in . . . THE LITERARY WORLD. HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HAAAAA!!!!!!
