Gary J. Rose Ph.D
Hello and welcome to my Author Central page. For fifteen years I was employed as a police sergeant with the Milpitas Police Department in California. During my time as a law enforcement officer I was fortunate to be selected as one of the first hostage negotiators in the state. Trained by Dr. Harvey Schlossberg (retire NYPD), I became fascinated with the field of psychology, yet did not see myself as a therapist. Retirement forced a career change into the field of education. For the past twenty-five years I have had the opportunity to teach at-risk incarcerated students in a juvenile detention facility as well as our county jails. The psychology techniques I used both on the street and in hostage situations better prepared me for the task of dealing with an increase of emotionally disturbed, conduct disorder students entering our 21st century classrooms. After receiving a mandate from my supervisor, I left teaching at juvenile hall and was instrumental in forming our county's first military-boot camp style school which used order, structure and when necessary, discipline to help our students become prepared to return to their traditional schools. Even after a tremendous success rate, the county decided to go a direct route and the school closed. From this experience I was motivated to complete my doctorate in psychology and created my first book, "Towards the Integration of Police Psychology Techniques Combined with the Socio-ecological psychology model to Combat Juvenile Delinquency in our K-12 Classrooms. Hope you enjoy my book. My second non-fiction book titled Hitting Rock Bottom, made Amazon's best sellers list (ebook) for 10 weeks. This is a book where my former at-risk students (cadets)tell their stories and how the military-style bootcamp academy changed their lives around. I then began writing fictional books starting with Ark of the Covenant where I introduced FBI Special Agent Jeannie Loomis. Little did I know at the time, but Jeannie would be featured in the next five Loomis novels with the latest, Time Game, being released in October 2020. I hope you check out all of my novels and please leave your reviews. Like all authors, I appreciate it.Read more Read less
