LAPD officer Jerry Minton (retired) currently resides with his wife in Glendale, California Jerry by choice spent his twenty plus year career working on the streets in some of Los Angeles's toughest neighborhoods while serving in the elite Metropolitain division and in several out laying divisions. Jerry uses his unique LAPD street cop background to write his novels that employ realistic fictionalized landscapes and intriging characters. Although altered, many of the scenes are based on real events and people, all combined with romance, adventure along with a supernatural twist.
As Jerry puts it . . . "The one thing that has motivated my writings the most, with out a doubt; was the twenty plus years I served as a Los Angeles Police Officer. During that time I was witness to some of the most unique characters, and events; both in and out of uniform. There is tucked away in my mind many a recollection of incidents that as far back as a rookie cop some thirty-three years ago I knew I'd some day relive through a written account . . . now that day has come with the release of "Hollywood Nights" .
