The Wizard

In 1977 I was sworn in as a peace officer in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. When I eventually came out about my Wiccan beliefs, being the first Wiccan cop to do so, I spent the next three decades of my law enforcement career battling prejudice, gossip, threats, being accused of bizarre acts, being under surveillance, surviving repeated investigations by the police called the “Wicca File”, ending up a detective and an expert in hate crimes against minority religions. This is my story, which I originally wrote in 2004, about a year before I retired. Now that I've been retired almost a year I've revised it and put it out there for you to see. It will soon be available from Dark Moon Press.
