After a near death accident rendered police officer Michael Walton unable to return to work, he was faced with the real possibility that he may never wear a badge again. The seasoned officer turned his complete focus to writing, a dream he had put off for far too long.

Although his lengthy and decorated career as an officer had provided him much fodder for writing, he had never found the time. Stuck between bed-rest, medical appointments, he finally had the opportunity to compose the novel that had long been brewing below the surface.

The first draft of APOK was completed in late 2011, and the story has since been transformed from a rough around the edges’ hero’s tale to an epic novel of intrigue, international conflict and terrorist agendas.
