Before becoming an author, Clif Edwards’ professional life was as a lawman. After retiring from the Michigan State Police at the rank of detective lieutenant, he served as a municipal police officer, and then 14 seasons as a protection ranger with the National Park Service. It is from these 38 years of paths crossed in frontline law enforcement experiences that he pens the popular series.
The emblem symbolizes the outline of a Michigan State Police patch, overlaid with a National Park Service patch, upon which a writer’s quill rests.
Across these three symbols, in a red banner are the words “Paths Crossed.”
