When Dr. Julie Salzano writes about the minds and hearts of cops and crooks, she knows what she’s talking about. She’s worked for the New York City Police Department for fifteen years and earned a doctorate in Education.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Julie knew from an early age that she wasn’t going the Barbie route. She began writing at the age of thirteen and by high school graduation had produced two plays. Since her father was a New York City police lieutenant, it may not have been surprising that Julie graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a faculty award for excellence.

From John Jay she went to Columbia University for Educational Administration, where she was the founder and editor-in-chief of the literary magazine Individualist and won several awards from Columbia University for her writing during the late 1960’s.

Julie became one of 200 female police officers to enter the 38,000 man force of the New York City Police Department. There she received medals of distinction and heroism. Her education brought her to work for the Psychological Unit where she entered the post-doctorate program in Psychology, which she taught full-time at New York Institute of Technology, earning distinguished teaching awards.

Julie has written six screenplays and won three writing awards from Houston World fest Festival and Charleston Film Festival. She had a cable television show called Criminal Justice Today and had two plays produced Off-Broadway.

Based on her works on Transnational Drug Trafficking and her investigative reporting on Organized Crime she was recruited by Drug Enforcement Administration to work as an Intelligence Research Specialist. Still, writing remains her favorite activity.
