Illinois Connection

I am a Midwest baby boomer, born in East Alton, Illinois, but call several cities my home. I lived in Smithton, Illinois(1950-1959) as a boy, moved to Waterloo, Illinois,(1959-1962) then finished my high school in Freeburg (1964). I spent nearly 30 years as an Illinois State trooper , in District#3, Desplains,Illinois then transfered to Maryville D#11 most of which was patroling in St. Clair and Clinton County, near Carlyle, Illinois, my retirement home.

Biographical and Professional Information

I have written eighteen books of fiction and used the pen name of Re`al "Bull" Oney as a laugher to my skills as a writer. I attended Kilgore College in Texas and later Southern Illinois University Carbondale, prior entering law enforcement. I used my Illinois experiences as a pathway to my stories.
