About the Author
On my Twitter profile I describe myself as an 'Englishman, lost in Spain', but it hasn't always been that way. I was lost long before I came to live in Spain. Addicted to writing for the last 8 years, I seriously smiled when my first publication - a short story based on my life - hit the #1 spot in Amazon.com's Law Enforcement. I'm now working on the next fifteen books, which include a six-book fantasy series based on Dreams. It's fair to say that I'm going to be around for a while. Welcome to Diem.

Within the ROZZER series by Diem Burden (a true story about Burden making a transition from being in the British army to being a cop), I found things that I didn’t like as well as what I did like. Let’s start with one of the things that got under my skin a little bit. One writing technique that Diem Burden uses when writing both “End of the Road” and “Cops don’t Run” is crude language. Yes, I understand that he is going with exactly what happened throughout the events of his life within the army and the training of becoming a cop, but I don’t like writing that contains the F word so many times. I feel like it distracts from the writing itself when so many profanities are in context. He did make up for this, however, when the reader got a look into what Burden was thinking about when the event was occurring. His thoughts were strung together, without this profanity, allowing the reader a break from the crude language of his acquaintances. But, moving on from the negatives, there were many aspects that I did like within the series. I loved the vivid detail that Burden represented within his writing. He did this in a way that allowed us to see exactly what was going on in the scene that was taking place, as well as what he was thinking and feeling at that very moment. You could feel the passion when needed and you could feel the fear when such a situation arose. Burden did an excellent job portraying everything within a split second. Overall I feel like Burden did an excellent job in all the books within the series. His writing style allowed for him to show the audience what he experienced with vivid detail in as little words as possible; a quick, fun, easy, and thrilling read overall.
