Authors always call me for research into novels they are writing. I always try to help them out. One such time, I was called by Bill Neal, who is a producer of documentaries. He was writing a novel based in Port Townsend, but also included a Seattle detective.
We hung out for a day, and had a great time. (We’re still friends today). He decided that his detective wasn’t just going to be any Seattle detective. It was going to be me! It’s available here.
