If you are considering law enforcement as a career, you need to read this biography. If you are in law enforcement or were at one time… this is the book for you. Read about Terry’s life in law enforcement to see what you will be facing should you choose this career. His stories will literally open your eyes to the reality of being a Peace Officer.
This is the true story of a man that wore many hats. He was a son, a father, a husband, and good friend to many but mostly… he was a law enforcement officer. He dedicated his life to serving and protecting people; some he did not even know. Terry Bandemer was “Top Cop” and received awards all the way from the Police Department to the Sheriff’s Office and was given an American flag and an accommodation straight from the White House. He was shot, stabbed and looked death directly in the eye.
A K-9 handler, he and is best friend Major, a black shepherd that rode shotgun as Terry’s partner for over ten years, tracked and apprehended criminals. Major, a highly decorated Police Dog, served without hesitation or concern for his own life next to Terry. He retired a “Top Dog” and best friend to Terry. He “took a bite out of crime” and enjoyed tracking the bad guys as he was born to do. He was a friend to all except the criminal.
Follow Terry and his furry partner as they embark on some of the most fascinating adventures and law enforcement officer could ask for. Some would end in tragedy and haunt Terry’s dreams even today. Some would bring peace and a sense of safety to everyone Terry worked to protect. From murders to suicides and drug busts galore, Terry stood tall and faced his fears head on.
Terry’s stories will grab you and hold you as you read of his life as a Peace Officer. He did it all for the safety of the people and it was never about the awards or accommodations he received throughout his career. A day in Minnesota named for him and recognition for his services, Terry remained himself. Quitting was never an option for him and the county’s he worked for were safer to be in because of Terry and Major. “I’m a cop… I wear a badge.” Book ‘em, Danno.”BookCoverImage

New books available now.

Hello to you all. I have not been here in a while and “shame on me.” I have published many more books and have written two biographies. the first is the true story of a woman that endured 30+ years of the most violent of abuse from her husband. She took all he had to give, including the loss of a kidney, all for the love of her children. In the end, she was abducted from her apartment, naked and in the frigid cold of a Minnesota winter. She survived all of it only to lose the love of three of her children.

 The second biography is the life story of the man that brought her back from Mexico where she was taken to when she was abducted. He is a highly decorated law enforcement officer that moved up from cop to sheriff and had a K-9 unit that is still tops in Minnesota. In his biography, Terry relives some of the most interesting and dangerous cases in his career.

 I have also been busy writing and publishing the next segments of the Witches of the Forest series. Four and Five are finished and published and i am now writing the final part of the 6 segment series.

Sixteen-ninety-two was a time of change and growing and life and death in the village of Salem, Massachusetts. Innocent people, accused of being witches, were put to death by hanging or drowning and sometimes, they were burned alive. A barbaric time that seemed to some as if man had fallen backwards instead of going forward. Were some of them truly witches? Were there spells casted and people killed by the witchcraft of Salem? Some will believe and others will scream it was all lies but the truth is, we were not there to witness.

 Wiccan’s and covens, both dark and good exist within our everyday world. They may be good or bad cold or warm; such things matter very little in the grand scheme of things. You may choose to believe or not and it will not change anything that has happened already. But bear witness to what happened to one witch, when she chose to fight the wrong coven. These were not simply witches of old; they are the witches of the forest and their queen is Rachel. She lives to protect the forest from harm and the forest in turn, calls her their queen. ImageImageTogether they protect one another.

Here is another peek at the next segment of my witches series. The first two are already available on smashwords.com and amazon.com. please take a look and enjoy.

 The woman stared at the witches, searching for some way to escape. She looked at things in the cabin and wondered how they could be. She saw water that ran from a curved apparatus, simply by moving a lever. There was lighting that had no flame that lit with the touch of a finger. Where-ever she was, it was not Salem village.

 “I wish to speak now to your Elder.” Her voice had softened as she stood and faced the witches. “I have suffered harshly at the hands of those who would see me dead. I have held my tongue for as long as I can but no more. Your witches in my time had no way of knowing that they were helping me when they attempted to save my life.”

 As quickly as she had begun to talk, she went silent as her hand moved to her stomach. From a hidden pocket, she took out a wand and before any of the witches could respond, she waved it across the air. Sparks flew from the fireplace and began to ignite the wooden walls. Witches ran in every direction, trying to find cover from the power unleashed by the woman.

 “Who the hell are you, witch, and what is your purpose?”  Debra had screamed the question as loud as she could.

 “Who am I, you ask, little witch? I am your very worst nightmare. I have been alive for centuries and in all of my years, never did I think I would find this coven. I knew from far in your past that you existed. I felt the searing pain from the one you call queen. She has yet to be born and I intend on destroying all of you before that can come to light. My great, great grand-daughter died at the hands of witches you have not seen yet. My Melody shall not die in vain.”

 “We don’t even know who this woman is that you speak of. It matters very little though. We are here to defend what is rightfully ours. The forest stands with us to defeat you.”

 “Your queen and her fellow witch unknowingly opened the door for me to come here. They are stuck in a world that hates our kind and kills more every day. I suspect it isn’t long before they too will die. I have lived so long and waited each and every day for this moment. I too know the future and one day I will have a daughter. She will be more powerful than even I am. But to be queen, I must change a future none of you know of. I must stop a witch from being born so that my Melody can sit in her rightful place as queen of the wiccans.”

  Ella stepped forward and touched the witches arm. A shock of pure energy rushed through her body, causing her to jerk backwards. She held her grip tightly, taking in all that she could. The witch shook her arm violently, trying to dislodge Ella’s hand. Ella refused to be tossed away, though her body had begun to emit puffs of smoke.

 “Anastasia…” Ella whispered. “Sisters and brothers, hear my words.” She spoke to each of the Wiccan’s minds. “This is no ordinary witch that stands before us. This is Anastasia, a powerful, murderous witch, whom has killed her own kind to further her own needs. She is in all of the text’s that have been written of our predecessors. It was thought the she was drowned during the witch trials though her body was never found. Her presence in our time can only mean death for some of us. She comes to destroy not only our coven but the forest with us.”

 “Can we defeat her, Ella?”

 “I fear that even with our powers combined, without Rachel, we may all die here today, Matthew.”

“I must get back to my village before the witches kill anyone else! Leave me be so that I may return to Salem!”
Ella, teacher of the past and the laws of the Wiccan, stepped up. “Salem, you say? There has been no Salem village here for Centuries. What year do you think this is?”
“I have no time for this game you play! There are witches to be hung and I shall see to it that the two that killed my husband hang first!”
“Debra, I think she is talking about the witch hunts in Salem Village. Tell me; whoever you are… what were the witches’ names?”
“Johnathon called one Rachel but I know not the other wenches name. I know only that they killed my husband and they will pay for their witchcraft!”
The coven huddled close together, still keeping watch on the woman. Ella spoke out.
“Apparently, we have a visitor from 1692 and Rachel has found the man she went looking for.”
Timothy shook his head and his face grimaced with anger. “Yes, she found him… right in the center of the worst witch hunt in our history! She is in Salem, just in time to be hanged!!!”ImageImage
