Bio: I am a retired Texas Peace Officer with over 21 years (1973-1994) as such. I also was a contractor/agent for the FBI and CIA for 10 years (1994-2004) after retiring from active law enforcement. Then I went to work for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (2005-present). My books are based on my life and career as a cop, and then as an contracting federal agent for the federal authorities as an International Bounty Hunter/Assassin, hence the reason I write about my life in fiction. I wish I could do a real bio on myself, but that's totally out of the question. I write a series actually, referred to as the "DANE" novels.
Book one's title,"Dane, a life and time thereof: First Bounty", takes the reader from my age of 12 years through to the end of my first international bounty case.
Book two's title,"Dane: Saigon J.U.M.P.", takes the reader all over southeast Asia going after a bad guy wanted back here in the U.S. It is soon to be released.
This series is a total of 7 books altogether to complete it. Now, I write my books in such a way that they are actually linked to one another. So, if you were to get book 5 to read, it will say things I talked about in previous stories that won't make sense without having the others, one through 4, to better understand what I am talking about in book 5, and so on. It's very hard to write in such a way, believe me, but I found it best if I really want to give the reader the full story of my life and career that has now spaned over 41 years. Actually if you add from age 12 as my books start you have a life put on paper that spans 53 years, and I am currently 61. I'll be 62 in February, 2015. http://www.hoofard.us http://www.amazon.com/authorscircle

Was Edward Snowden Justified? Two teams faced off on the motion "Snowden was justified" in his release of highly classified national security documents. The team that sways the most people by the end of the debate is declared the winner. AGAINST THE MOTION Andrew C. McCarthy, a contributing editor at National Review and a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, is a former top federal prosecutor. A former chief assistant U.S. attorney, he is best known for leading the prosecution against Omar Abdel Rahman and 11 others for waging a terrorist war against the U.S., including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. Ambassador R. James Woolsey, a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, chairs the board of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and is a venture partner with Lux Capital Management. Previously, he served in the U.S. government on five different occasions, where he held presidential appointments in two Republican and two Democratic administrations. FOR THE MOTION Daniel Ellsberg is a former U.S. military analyst who, in 1971, leaked the Pentagon Papers, which revealed how the U.S. public had been misled about the Vietnam War. After serving in the Marine Corps, he became in 1959 a strategic analyst at the RAND Corporation and consultant to the White House and Defense Department, which he joined before transferring to the State Department to serve in Saigon. Ellsberg's trial on 12 felony counts was dismissed on grounds of governmental misconduct against him. Ben Wizner, legal adviser to Edward Snowden, directs the ACLU's Speech, Privacy and Technology Project, which is dedicated to protecting and expanding the freedoms of expression, association, and inquiry. He has litigated numerous cases involving post-9/11 civil liberties abuses, including challenges to airport security policies, government watch lists, extraordinary rendition and torture.
