After returning from Vietnam, Ron Copeland went through a difficult adjustment period. Finding civilian work boring and unrewarding, he gravitated toward law enforcement, which turned into a thirty-five-year career. Over the years, Ron worked his way up the ranks, starting as a patrolman and then becoming a detective, sergeant, lieutenant, and retiring as a captain with the Shawnee, Kansas Police Department.
Ron and Terry, his wife of forty-two years, have three children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. When he isn’t writing, Ron can be found honing his horsemanship skills, taking art classes, traveling with Terry, and spending time with their children and grandchildren. Ron and Terry live in the Kansas City area with their bulldog Petunia. Sons of the Greatest Generation is Ron’s first book.
