Premeditated Fiction was created by author and Law Enforcement professional RJ Beam. Our purpose is to provide writers insight into public safety operations and the craft of writing.
After presenting at various writing conferences RJ has been contacted by various authors and screenwriters for feedback and consulting on their manuscripts.
I am an author and Wisconsin Law Enforcement professional. My journey into working public safety started when I was fifteen and joined my local Police Explorer program.
I have experience both as a firefighter and police officer. For much my career I served as an evidence technician, collecting evidence from crime scenes.
In 2003 I started writing when I created the blog Rescue Humor. Over the years I have written articles for various police magazines and journals. My debut novel titled Fire Cop was released in 2015.
Public Safety is a passion for me. If there is anything I can do to help you write better stories about crime and the people working police, fire, and EMS please ask, I love helping authors!
