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.... 
You can also find and follow me on twitter and face book at www.twitter.com/hoofdog and www.facebook/donaldhoofardsr for my books: www.amazon.com/author/donaldhoofardsr ...

Guest Lectures, book signings, and getting Book II ready for release!
It's been a litle time since I last posted anything on this blog site of mine, so here goes. First, Book II,"Dane: Saigon J.U.M.P." is nearing completion for publishing and I have yet to find a book cover for it that really appeals to me. So I have enlisted the help on that from my youngest of son's. A career U.S. Air Force Senior Airman, D.J. (Don, Jr.) is putting his skills as a fine artist to work on this task of a book cover that will stand out. Go Dee!
Secondly, I am working on some book signings on Book I around the country. Stay tuned for the latest on that schedule to be posted here and on my business site very soon. If your town is even close to where I'll be, stop by with your copy for me to authography for you.
Thirdly, if you are a criminal justice student, thinking about it as a career, or know a college, university, or even your local high school, think about getting in touch with me. I'd be happy to come to your school and speak about law enforcement, investigations, security, and bounty hunting at the local, state, and federal levels. It is my passion and I'd love to bring that passion for the fields that make our criminal justice system work to your campus for lively discussion, debates, and lectures that will help you and others discover your passion for it too. To get an idea about this passion I have all you need do is read the pages of my books to find it within each page that I write. What would that cost? Cover my expenses and the lecture (usually 2 hrs.) is free! Drop a line to me and let's get me to your campus. Remember, my actual time is FREE! So get in touch before that time becomes a paid deal. After all, I've gotta' live too ya' know? Until next I write, so let it be written. So let it be done. And...follow me on Facebook too.

Travel Time Question....
If you could travel to the same places I have in my books, would you do it? Think about it. In my first one I traveled Mexico from Cancun across the Gulf to the eastern coast, and into the heart of the country taking my captured bad guy all the way back up to the Texas border, and into federal custody with danger at every turn for me. And, in book two I travel Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam to bring my bad guy home. Would you care to make the same trips as I did? Think about it and get back to me. I'd really like to know and so would several travel agencies I know of. I've been everywhere and then some. Places that are beautiful, exotic, and intriguing yet deadly where I was concerned. Places that would be a travellers dream to be in under better circumstances than I was in at the time. Tell me, would you dare travel the same roads I have? Until your reply, so let it be written, so let it be done.
Send your replies to me here on this site or to my facebook.com wall.
Until later,

Just When You Think It's All Worked Out!
Just when I thought it was all worked out with the Mancow Muller Show Producers for Oct. 7th, 2010 at 6:00 a.m. c.s.t., they up and notify me that a schedule change has happened and I am to be on the show on Oct. 8th, 2010 at 7:00 a.m. c.s.t. instead. Oh well, at least I get to sleep an hour longer...
So let it be written, so let it be done.

Mancow Muller Radio Live!
Here's an alert for all you radio listeners. I'll be interviewed by Mr. Muller on his syndicated radio show on October 7, 2010 at 6:00 a.m. CST for you early birds. If you can't get up in time, or over sleep, you can go to www.mancow.com to their archives to hear it. It's the very first live on air radio interview I will have. So tune in to hear me talk about my life, my books, and whatever else Mr. Muller has to ask me about. His show is syndicated across the U.S. to some 9,000,000 listeners, WOW! Can't wait to get up that morning for this one. They say that early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. We'll see if that part is true. So let it be written, so let it be done.
