Welcome to my blog! I am Donald R. Hoofard, Sr. and I write the "Dane" novels. Each story is based on my life as a Federal Fugitive Recovery Agent hunting down, apprehending, and returning the baddest of the bad to U.S. Justice from foreign lands that had provided safe harbor to them until I came along. Now retired from that life, I write about my cases for you to get to know that side of life as a Professional Bounty Hunter. It is the most dangerous occupation on the face of this earth, and I have lived to tell about it.

This weblog is my online journal. You'll find my opinions on a variety of topics as well as links to other things on the web that I find interesting. When the spirit moves me, I may also include longer essays. My topics include, but are not limited to, careers and matters pertaining, and of interest to those within:
Law Enforcement
Bounty Hunting/Fugitive Recovery Agent (State, Federal, and International)
Professional Writing as a Freelancer
and whatever else related to the above you want to know about. You can email your questions to me at admin@hoofard.us .  I will respond in kind a.s.a.p. to you. Remember, I may not always agree with what you may have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it....

What's it all about?
I am getting asked why I want this tour being planned and my answer is both simple and complicated. First, I want to bridge the gap that has existed for years and years between law enforcement and bounty hunters. By working together more often than we do on fugitives, can we really begin to take that bite out of crime we all want. Bounty Hunters have a freer hand in catching bad guys and gals than do local Law Enforcement Officers. Bounty Hunters are paid per apprehension while Officers are paid a salary to do the same thing. That's where the tension comes in. Because I have been on both sides of the issue as a cop who turned hunter, I am able to see both sides better than most do in their respective professions, and they are that, professions. Cops resent hunters for the amount of money they can make taking the same risks as they do on a salary to catch a bad guy. But, they are sworn officers and hunters are not. Cops have guide lines and laws they must follow to make an apprehension legal. While the hunter can go any where and do almost anything to make that apprehension without worry over the legalities for the most part. The hunter works, for the most part, alone, and without a safety net, while cops never go it alone, and always have a net (backup) to rely on. These are divisions not easily resolved between the two professionals at work. It is hoped that this tour will help bring about a better understanding for each that will become productive toward our working together to accomplishing our goal of taking the criminals off our streets. Whether that street be local, state, national, or international in scope. We must become more able to accomplish our mutual goals of apprehension by helping each other toward that end.
So let it be written. So let it be done.
Until next I write,
Don H.

Amazon's Kindle Store Has gotten into the act.....
Well, have found that Amazon has run out of stock on my book, and it's now being offered as a "Used Copy" at $43.76 USD, Wow! Even I wouldn't buy it at that price, used or new. There is a better deal though. Go to Amazon's Kindle Store on their site and get my book for just $5.99USD. It's an instant download to whatever gadget you have to store it on, even a Kindle, for FREE! That's the cheapest ever for a book that tell's my story to you. Go get and enjoy! Remember, go to the Kindle Store, enter my title, and bam-bam it's yours.
