According to the book description of A CHiP on my Shoulder: How to Love Your Cop with Attitude, "It hasn't been easy. Marriage is hard, but marriage to a police officer is even harder. Shift work, hypervigilance, mood swings, and risk have been a big part of the life I live with my officer. But with the right mindset, it can be done, and it can be done well. A CHiP on my Shoulder: How to Love Your Cop with Attitude provides true stories from several marriages, positive thoughts and proven principles on how to make a law enforcement marriage not only survive its difficulties, but thrive in the midst of them."

 According to the book description of Selfish Prayer: How California National Guard DUSTOFF Changed the Face of Medevac amid Chaos, Carnage and Politics of War, "They fly into battles armed only with a rifle and a red cross... whispering silent prayers for courage as they work. Driven by a deep-seated compassion for human life, Medevac crews risked their lives for their brothers in battle. Daring rescues, firefights, and courageous measures in the air and on the ground pushed their abilities beyond limits to ensure soldiers saw their loved ones again. This is the untold story of DUSTOFF - a company of National Guard lifesavers dedicated to a mission that moved beyond the bounds of deployment, and outside the borders of Afghanistan. By recruiting civilian paramedics from the west coast, the 168th GSAB Medevac Company set out to prove their training model could save more lives of wounded soldiers than flight medics trained to the Army standard. Through eyewitness accounts of bloody battles, hoists into dangerous terrain under fire, and investing themselves to sheer exhaustion, they had one goal: bring our soldiers home alive. The Army's documented results were staggering. The mortality rate of American, Coalition and civilian patients was cut in half while they were in theater. After they departed Afghanistan, it rose 50% to where it was before. Returning home from deployment, their battle continued. Armed with damning evidence and a memory-fueled passion that led to face to face conflicts, they were marginalized and maligned. Undaunted, these men put their careers at risk. They fought for fundamental changes to ensure our soldiers receive the best care possible, forcing the Army's hand to finally do the right thing."
