Will Ablan is the pen name for Richard L. Muniz. Richard is a former police officer with twenty years service. During his tenure, he's held most every position possible to include Under-Sheriff and Chief of Police. He's worked undercover narcotics and plain clothes detective.
He's also a combat veteran and served with the US Army as a Military Policeman for eight years.
His "Lawman" series is drawn from those years and many of the cases he talks about happened in one form or another, if not to him, then certainly others.
