Tim Cotton has been a cop for 33 years, looking out for the good people of Bangor, Maine. He’s also written a very funny best-selling book called The Detective in the Dooryard, and now, he’s releasing another one called Got Warrants? Which begs the question, is Tim Cotton a cop who writes, or a writer who pauses in his scribblings from time to time to arrest a few bad guys?
I’ll let you decide for yourself in this week’s podcast, where I sit down with one of my favorite policemen to talk about writing, and one of my favorite writers to talk about policing. Here’s a short clip designed to make you click and listen when time permits. Have a great weekend. Or, better yet, in the words of my esteemed guest, “keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.”
