I am currently retired and living in Florida. For nearly twenty years I held supervisory and executive positions in public service and taught criminal justice, management and policy at the University level for twenty-two years. I have written four books, two went into second edition and more than thirty papers were accepted at national and international conferences. I have consulted and led training workshops in the United States and abroad. I hold a Ph.D in Urban Studies with emphasis on policy analysis, management and criminal justice. In regards to editing, my time reading and correcting student papers taught me, at least, to recognize bad writing and perhaps my comments and marks made them better writers.
