Fighting Monsters is a collection of Sean Joselyn’s memorable experiences during his, still very active, law enforcement career. During these experiences while assigned to patrol and SWAT, he has witnessed tragedy, seen lives taken, and taken someone’s life himself. His stories illustrate the monsters he and his teams have fought. In his book, he will walk you through these experiences by putting yourself in his boots. You will learn about his successes and failures as he lived and learned from them. He will share the emotional toll that this career has taken on him and his family.The monsters, though, aren’t always who you think they are. They come in different forms, different areas of his life, and even from within. You see, Sergeant Sean Joselyn has learned that it takes a monster to fight monsters. He has trained himself both physically and mentally to do this; to fight and win at all costs. He now trains his team to have the same mindset. He has created a calloused group of warriors who will walk into hell together, side by side, but at what cost?

Bus 25 to Stratford is one of the several short poems I wrote while in prison at Harmondsworth detention, London England. It was initially published on Amazon.com in 2015 but was later unpublished and made unavailable for readership. This poem was written during one of those quiet moments in prison. I tried to narrate my daily struggles as a foreigner in London England. I wanted to recollect my bitter-sweet experiences and replay every scene as an imaginary footage – a reminder of my journey in the UK. I had arrived at a transitional stage of my life – on the verge of awakening, a digression from the path I had envisaged, nurtured and pursued. This prison poem celebrates a place I cherished and called my home. It’s a tribute to Stratford and a mirthful remembrance of Bus 25 to Ilford – a London transport service that became a major part of my existence in England as a student, musician and cleaner. Objectively, this was the first poem I wrote during the first week of my incarceration in Harmondsworth. What began as a prison diary coalesced into an autobiography four years later…

<br />My story, a writer by chance. <br />A deep reflection on the readers comments. Its pages touched me My writing, your reading, routes covered together. A journey inside ourselves from our daily experiences always in search of a meaning, passing through the memories, to emotions. This is the story of a writer by chance, me, and my discovery of a method of expression. The texts creation, which is present inside of us, that needs to be rendered in order to make our life experience a way to propose and follow.<br />The emotive writing and reading. <br />Giovanni Tommasini<br /><br />"An uncommon and curious setting that makes the tale, or the poem, intriguing; the whole book is a poetry treatise. I cant put it down; its never slow or too descriptive.<br /><br />"A writer by chance... yet not so fortuitous in the end: Giovanni Tommasini writes for all, using an experiential language full of his own past experience and rich in reflections, thoughts, translations of feelings. I recommend this book to those who want to get in touch or meet again with and in a beautiful person.  <br />

Gwenda Sloane doesn’t fit the typical mold of a murderer. We often think of murderers as displaying inconsistent behavior and having alternate motives to their actions. Many times, murderers show a history of crime and recklessness. Gwenda Sloane simply doesn’t fit these criteria. <br /> In crimes that have taken place over the previous decade, the murder committed by Gwenda Sloane didn’t garner as much attention as some others of a similar time period. This is partly due to the location of the murder and the lack of international media attention with it. If this story had taken place in the United States of America, this would have undoubtedly been one of the biggest stories from anywhere in the nation. The lack of international media attention around the case doesn’t make the crime any less chaotic. This crime was one of unimaginable circumstance and truly heartless actions. The murder committed by Gwenda Sloane is a prime example of how the most innocent of faces can commit truly heinous crimes.
