Welcome to Dickie Floyd Novels
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.
