Prerequisite: Must have a cop character in mind for a current or future book.

“Behind the Badge: Cracking Your Cop’s Emotional Shield” takes a hands-on approach toward helping you discover who your law enforcement character really is. Drawing on nearly 24 years of observations and experiences in the world of law enforcement, Margaret Ta ylor created this class for writers to dig deep and discover the foundation of any cop character’s foundation and motivations. The process of taking your law enforcement officer (LEO) from a simple caricature to a potentially flawed, but truly fascinating, character includes:

* Getting beneath the skin of your LEO
* Going from cliché to real
* How training helped mold your cop character
* What makes your LEO tick
* The all-important characterization and motivation
* How assignment-location affects your LEO’s personality
* Coping methods this character is likely to use
* How your LEO sees Goal, Motivation and Conflict

M.A. Taylor spent more than twenty years in law enforcement. After seven years with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), she became a Special Agent for the California Department of Justice (DOJ), spending over a decade in narcotics…including assignment to a federal DEA-HIDTA task force. Margaret’s areas of expertise range from surveillance to wiretaps to tribal gaming, sexual predators, investigations and more.
