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.

RJ has a background that includes experience as in both police work and firefighting. For much of his career, RJ has been his department’s Evidence Technician (some would call it CSI).

In 2003 RJ started the blog Rescue Humor. His blogging opened the door for him to write for various police and fire publications. An injury in 2014 gave RJ extra time to fulfill a bucket-list item of writing a full-length novel. His debut novel Fire Cop was published in October 2015.

Due to his interest in Public Safety and writing RJ has been a featured presenter at the Writer Police Academy and a panelist at the Public Safety Writers Association.

After his first presentation at the Writers Police Academy, multiple authors and screenwriters have contacted RJ for feedback and consulting on projects.

“Making people believe the unbelievable is no trick; it’s work. … Belief and reader absorption come in the details: An overturned tricycle in the gutter of an abandoned neighborhood can stand for everything.”
