Words Off The Street

http://wordsoffthestreet.com/wp-content/uploads/powerpress/Words_on_the_street_2kx2k_.jpg

My name is BJ Schneider and I’ll be your host. I’ve been in public service for over 25 years as both a paramedic and a police officer. I took what I learned in those careers and began writing. I Want to talk with authors, writers and bloggers that put the preverbal pen to paper about the world of Police, Firefighter, Emergency Medical services or other First Responder.
I want to talk to those people that write about what’s going on out in the street any given day; The trainers, the chiefs, and the patrolman in the field unit. I also want to talk with those that have taken the leap into the world of fiction.
The folks that have taken the public safety experience and combined it with a great story to put out that mystery or action fantasy. I want to know what drives them. Where the stories come from and what got them into writing.
I’d also like to share with you, news about the latest books, articles, or noteworthy blogs that are out there from those in public safety. This way we can support our brothers and sisters behind the badge, the axe or the stethoscope.
