Dickie Floyd Novels

Welcome to Dickie Floyd Novels

Homicide Crime Scene in Compton, CA — Dickie (left), Floyd (Right), Unnamed Deputy Sheriff (back to us), “Waybo” inside upstairs apartment, his body temperature rapidly dropping.

True Crime Blog

The stories on this blog are either true crime stories, war stories (true police adventures), or stories of personal situations with a crime/law enforcement theme. As a retired L.A. Sheriff’s homicide detective, I write about my experiences in law enforcement.

Warning: As with the caption in the above photo, you will find a level of gallows humor throughout my stories.

The Debut Novel

This blog was originally created in October 2017 following the August release of my debut novel, A Good Bunch of Men, thus beginning yet another life of crime. It is available on Amazon and Kindle.

The Sequel: Door to a Dark Room

Door to a Dark Room is the working title of the sequel to A Good Bunch of Men (it could be changed before publication). I anticipate it will be released sometime in mid to late 2018.

Other Books in the Works

I have finished the rough draft of a third novel, which will begin a new series, completely different from A Good Bunch of Men as far as characters. However, I have placed this book on a shelf so that the sequel to A Good Bunch of Men is the next to be published. The main character of this yet to be named third book, Rich Farris, is introduced in the sequel, Door to a Dark Room.

True Crime Books

My intent is to begin writing true crime by the end of the year with my research beginning this summer. I have several compelling stories of homicide cases in mind of which I was a primary investigator.

A Nom de Plume: Dickie Floyd

There is a story behind the pen name, Dickie Floyd. I honestly have one of the most boring names on earth. When I started writing, I wanted to use a different name since A) mine sucks, and B) I will always have a bit of cop paranoia in me. The story of the names origin and purpose is detailed here: The Dickie Floyd Story.
