About the Author -- Ben DeWitt
Ben DeWitt writes what he knows, especially when it comes to his Police Action War Series. He entered the
Army as a private in 1963, assigned to the 82nd Airborne. By 1965, his government made him an officer and a gentleman in the field
artillery. Two tours in Viet Nam, the first with the First Infantry Division as an artillery forward observer with 1/16th Infantry
Company and the second with the Military Advisory Command Viet Nam, living with the 25th ARVN Division on the Cambodian
border, brought him a chest full of combat medals and an insight into politics and combat which emerged thirty years later in his
He has worked in the oil fields of Texas, Wyoming and Michigan, mined copper in the
open pits of Arizona and worked as a mechanic a thousand feet underground in Wyoming. DeWitt has raced cars and motorcycles most of
his life and still does when the time and opportunity present themselves. He now writes full time in Pueblo, Colorado.
DeWitt brings fascinating characters to his action-packed adventures. In the Police Action War Series, readers
embrace "The Big Spook" William B. Booth and "The General" Al Houer, first introduced in No Other Way. In The Third Valley, these
men are in power and it is their responsibility to send young warriors, like the blue-eyed Apache ETS and Mark Wilson, into danger.
In the newest novel, Some Day, Some Way, they learn to fight a new battle -- the war on drugs.
In his latest novel, Nobody Dies in Mexico, DeWitt
brings back some of his favorite characters, including Sherman Christy, Juan Hart, Det. Floyd Carter and the flamboyant arms expert,
Leon, who join forces to take on the bad guys from around the world.

"The combat experience can never be forgotten. The rest is old-fashioned research because I try to make the fiction as realistic
"I tend to combine characteristics of people I've known through the years to create a single character. I've met a lot of interesting
people, especially in the oil patch and the copper mines. But in Viet Nam, it was sometimes hard to tell the soldiers from the spies."
"Racing has always been a part of my life and I guess it always will be. Must be a flaw in my character!"
