It’s Only a Badge

(From reader emails)

“I began reading It’s Only a Badge as soon as I got home from work and couldn’t put it down until I finished it at 1:30 a.m.”

“My family has fallen in love with your book. I read it first, then my husband, then my 83 year old father, and lastly Grandma (87 years old). We look forward to your next book!”

“I love the book, finished it last night. Now my 16 year old sister is reading it non-stop. It’s Only a Badge motivates me to be a cop, and it shows that its ok to be afraid or nervous or to mess up as long as you just don’t quit.”
