About the Guest

Joe DeCicco “originally attended college to practice an Electrical Engineering. Life circumstances decreed that he join the New York City Police Department in 1973. Joe has spent more then half his service in plainclothes, including over four years as a narcotics investigator and more than three years in a Brooklyn Detective Squad. After spending twenty years on the streets of New York, last serving in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, Joe is a happily retired Detective with over twenty awards and decorations.

His first novel, Angel with a Gun (Five Star publishing) received recognition by being included in the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association 2007 Young Adult Top Forty Best Selection List.  His novel(s) closely follow his personal experiences while serving in law enforcement. The pages are a fictionalized cornucopia of actual events and characters.

Writing comes to the author from an inner need to share his experiences with others. He plans to write a series fictionally relating his past professional life up to the present. After leaving the NYPD he obtained a private investigators license and is still active in that field, often, pro bono.”
