                                    book cover for the LAPD Wife and author of married to the badge, Renee Anderson

Renee Anderson started writing online for the website almost 4 years ago about her life married to an LAPD narcotics officer and is still going strong. What began as a quest to reach out to other wives of law enforcement, sharing stories of both humor and heartache, turned into a wonderful discovery. No matter the location or department, we all go through the same ups and downs that life with an officer can bring. And it's nice to know that we're not alone. This book takes you through Renee's life with Officer Jake and shares personal stories of her fun, often frustrating and yet always fantastic life married to the badge.

Renee has received many accolades from national and international police and their wives for both her web site and this book. Competition in this category is scarce this is a niche market that has not been addressed well so far by the publishing community. There are thousands of law enforcement officers in this nation and hundreds of books written about the life of a cop. But there are less than a handful of books that directly address the life of an officers spouse let alone written by an officers wife.

Renees husband, Officer Jake, has been an LAPD officer for 19 years. They have been married for almost 12 years and have been through many dramatic and noteworthy incidents during his career that officers and their families can identify with. Renee has a journalism background and utilizes her writing expertise to successfully share their experiences and knowledge of the ups and downs life with a law enforcement officer can bring.
