Former police officer, 28 years with the Los Angeles Police Department and 14 years with Escondido Police Department, now turned author/writer with four books to his credit.


Background Information

D.E. Gray began his law enforcement career in 1967 spending 28 years as a Los Angeles police officer, 26 of those years working two wheel motorcycle duty. After his retirement from the LAPD in 1995, Gray was hired by the Escondido Police Department in North San Diego County. He spent another 14 years there, much of it as a uniform street cop. After Gray’s retirement from the force in 2008, he authored his first book titled “The Warrior In Me”, a memoir following his 42 year career at both agencies.

After writing his first non-fiction book “The Warrior In Me”, Gray decided to write his second book titled “True To The Blue”. Even though this book is a work of fiction, it is based in part on a true story that includes actual events that the author experienced or witnessed while on the job. Many of the characters portrayed in this book are patterned after real people who have either worked or crossed paths with D. E. Gray during his 42 year career as a seasoned street cop.

After experiencing a 42 year high working at the two police agencies, Gray realized that he and others like him were being replaced by a new breed of cop, many of whom never had to think outside the box or more accurately, outside the police manual. The new breed of cops now had newer cars, newer weapons, newer equipment, newer training and even more modern newly built police stations. This gave Gray the idea for his third and newest book titled, "Eclipse of the Blue for Greater Glory."

The story follows the lives of 12 retired Los Angeles police officers, eight men and four woman, who band together to commit the perfect crime, proving to themselves that they are not too old to out-smart and out-wit the new breed of cops that have taken their places.

Gray's newest book titled, "Conflict in Blue: The Marissa Ortega Story." is a continuation of his second book, "True to the Blue." Marissa Ortega, the daughter of a former LAPD cop who was killed by a Hispanic gangbanger is now an LAPD cop herself and is out to got even with as many gangsters as she can. With her aggressive approach on dealing with the gangs in her division, she is placed on a Mexican Mafia hit list resulting in an all out war between her and the notorious Avenues Street Gang.
