Joe Race is retired from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, the Medina, WA, Police Department and the Mariana Islands’ Attorney General’s Office, and has served in a number of executive positions with other law enforcement agencies, as well as completing police instruction missions in Kosovo and Bosnia. He teaches Criminal Justice as an adjunct at the Northern Marianas Islands College and also serves as a volunteer with the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, recently returning from a stint at Hurricane Ike. He and his friends also have plans in the near future for assisting again in building homes in Pacheco, Manila, Philippines with the Habitat for Humanity organization.
Joe writes when he can find a quiet, productive moment and translates his true-life adventures and experiences into stories and novels. His writing genre is somewhere between the novel and stories of real travel and adventure, kind of like the style of UK travel/fiction author Bruce Chatwin who came before him.
Joe’s main position in life is mostly transporting his teenagers to their games, tutors, rehearsals, fast-food lunches and shopping appointments with their pals. And co-habitating with his maganda wife.
This is his seventh novel. Mabuhay!
