Bernard Schaffer is the author of multiple novels, including the Santero and Rein Thriller series, and a non-fiction book studied at universities and police academies all across the United States. But that's not all.
In addition to writing, he is a full-time police detective (active duty, not retired), former child actor (retired, not active), and father of two children.
Schaffer credits his "voracious love of reading" at an early age with inspiring him to write.
He published several small-press stories in the 1990's, before attending the Montgomery County Municipal Police Academy. Since March, 2000, he has been a Warrington Township Police Officer. He has been a detective since 2005, and is a court-recognized narcotics expert and child forensic interviewer.
In 2011, Schaffer returned to publishing and released multiple titles as an independent author via digital platforms.
He subsequently founded a non-profit anthology with all proceeds benefiting the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The anthology featured multiple independent authors, in addition to sci-fi luminaries Harlan Ellison and Alan Dean Foster.
In 2016, Schaffer signed a multi-book deal with Kensington Publications for the Santero and Rein Thriller Series.
THE THIEF OF ALL LIGHT (2018), AN UNSETTLED GRAVE (2019) and BLOOD ANGEL (2020), available in hardback, audio, and eBook wherever books are sold.
