Kip Meyerhoff is a "retired LAPD sergeant who spent over twenty years policing the streets of Los Angeles and a decade as a licensed private investigator whose cases took him to a dozen states and three countries. These experiences provide the fodder for Deadwood and Beyond.

Meyerhoff has been a columnist for the River Times for the past decade. He lives in a Victorian home on the banks of the Ohio River with his significant other, the real life Linda, whose main job is to keep him out of trouble. His first book, Cooking with Kip, A Cook's Memoir, tells how his lifelong fascination with cooking and eating shaped his life.

Another retired LAPD member and fellow Wilshire Warrior, James Reeves, provided the art work for both of Kip's books."

According to the book description of Deadwood and Beyond, "A former LAPD detective sergeant, Roland "Rollo" Michaels is a self-assured, overcaffeinated, wry-humored divorce. He's doing his best to be a dependable part-time father to his two teenage children while keeping the lights on in the humble offices of his Los Angeles private investigation firm, Michaels & Associates. His associates are a diverse blend of loyal men and women who handle personal challenges with drink, love, verbal banter, and an occasional hand gesture. Everything goes crazy when Rollo is arrested at a murder scene in Deadwood, South Dakota. Rollo's friends and his own hubris lead him from the Black Hills to Beverly Hills, the shores of Long Island to the cliffs of San Simeon. The backstory of the sometimes failed Federal Witness Protection Program and Rollo's father's association with New York wise guys lend depth and intrigue to this character-driven tale. Enjoy the ride as Rollo Michaels confronts lying clients, a professional hitman, and a homicidal sociopath while antagonizing law enforcement officials of five different agencies from Los Angeles to Deadwood and Beyond."

According to the book description of  A Cook's Memoir, "Kip Meyerhoff learned how to cook from his father, a New York City gangster who got his formal training in culinary arts while doing a stretch in prison. His dad taught him the axioms of cooking: a little sugar can go a long way; bitterness can spoil your appetite for life; tarts are not always a just dessert; heat can reduce heat; and hot is not always hot. Kip wanted to learn more, so his father turned him over to a succession of hotel chefs. Soon he was searing and broiling, baking and boiling, sautéing and flambéing, roasting and toasting. He looks back at his incredible adventures cooking in Brooklyn, Hollywood, the Florida Keys, and just about everywhere else in this memoir about the flavors of life. Along the way, he shares tasty recipes such as the King's Sandwich (a grilled peanut-butter-and-banana goodie that was Elvis Presley's favorite), the Dixie Whistler's Fried Chicken, Garlicky White Pizza Sauce, Perfect Boiled Eggs, and many other dishes. Join Kip as he travels the world without a map-cooking pasta for wise guys, making a Christmas breakfast for working girls in Seoul, and winding up as a restaurateur in southern Indiana."
