As a writer, I admirer many other writers. Being a cop reporter at heart, my favorites are heavily — but not exclusively — skewed toward the crime beat.

- Joseph Wambaugh, a former Los Angeles cop who traded his badge for a typewriter, can be found at www.josephwambaugh.net or at www.facebook.com/JosephWambaugh.
