BRONX NEWS: Bronx cop pens novel inspired by 2014 killings of NYPD officers


Shocked as any other cop after the execution of two officers in Brooklyn, Sgt. Jordan Castro channeled his feelings into a novel that delves into the often tense relationship between police and the communities they serve.


“Those assassinations were heartbreaking,” Castro said of the deaths of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, shot while sitting in their patrol car in Bedford-Stuyvesant in 2014.


“I said to myself, ‘This has just gone too far. I have to do something. I know that I’m a writer and that I just can’t stand by and go on Facebook and post.’


“I had to do this and I had to be a voice for the police side of the ongoing discourse,” Castro said.

Bed-Stuy residents shoot hoops in honor of NYPD’s Liu, Ramos


“Smoke and Mirrors: Police Dreams” won’t make Castro rich. It’s a self-published e-book that’s also available in print form and has sold about 1,000 copies so far.


But in addition to fulfilling his lifelong dream of writing a novel, Castro donated 0 in proceeds from the novel to the family of a friend, Sgt. Galileo Garcia, who committed suicide in February.


Castro hopes the book will also contribute to the public discourse on American policing.


“I did want to investigate and explore the relationship and the tension between the community and police, and I wanted to work it out as realistically as possible,” Castro said.

Ramos, Liu families deal with Brooklyn shootings a year on


“Writing the book helped me analyze that with more clarity — why these things happen, why the strife exists and how, if possible, we can fix this and make that relationship stronger, better (and) restore that trust.”


Castro, 37, who is married and has a 1-year-old daughter, joined the NYPD in July 2006 and is a training sergeant for Housing Bureau cops in the Bronx.


Raised in Washington Heights by Cuban-born parents, he said they instilled a love of reading in him.


Castro’s favorite author is F. Scott Fitzgerald, and he admires Shakespeare, Ernest Hemingway and J.D. Salinger, too.

Beatles book goes beyond music of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ after 50 years


Over the years, Castro has jotted down story ideas on dinner napkins or blank pages in his memo book. And while police reports filed after big crimes or unusual incidents are no place for fiction, Castro took pride when he wrote them, filling them with details that caught the eye of fellow cops and supervisors.


“They would actually enjoy reading my reports,” he said.


Castro is not the first cop to write a book, but he thinks that every time an officer is published, the stereotypes many people have about police takes a hit.


“There are a lot of misconceptions and preconceived notions about cops,” he said. “This shows that a police officer can be creative, he can think outside the box, he can be an artist.

‘Radiate’ brings sci-fi trilogy to a satisfying end: book review


“He can take real-life events and channel them artistically.”

Inspiration is the theme and purpose of three books — “Intriguing Inspirational Poems,” by Claudia Coombs; “My Love for the Children of Haiti,” by Estelle Marcellus-Dubuisson, and “Poetry: Elixir of the Heart,” by Sharon Ghanny and R.H. Ali.


All the books are available from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.



“This the story of a struggling single mother of three with the vision and determination to improve the lives of the destitute children of Lascahobas, Haiti,” Marcellus-Dubuisson writes in “My Love for the Children of Haiti,” published by Dorrance, which details the many struggles and accomplishments of the nonprofit organization Marcellus-Dubuisson founded to help youngsters and families in her hometown.


Over her life, Marcellus-Dubuisson was moved by despair in her Haiti homeland — where she saw people living in poverty and dying for lack of proper medical care — and inspired to make a better life for people on the island nation, starting with her hometown of Lascahobas.



Coombs’ book — from Amazon’s CreateSpace — is a collection of poems designed to “lift” and “encourage” readers daily.


“Writing poetry is truly an inspiration to me. It enables me to expand my views on life in general and what it has to offer,” said the Trinidad-born Coombs, who also a caterer and hatmaker.



“It (poetry) allows me to examine thebeauty of life creations knowing we are all given the opportunity to partake of it all.”


The collaboration of Ghanny and Ali, published on Xlibris, unites poetry and photography to highlight the works of poets, models and photographers from the authors’ Trinidad home.


“Every author in this book brings a piece of their cultural heritage and language from as far as Trinidad to Guyana, London to India and New York City to Puerto Rico, Jamaica to Haiti, and Panama to the Philippines,” said Ghanny, adding that the book has contributions from youngsters in a children’s section.


A PRE-FESTIVAL “TASTE OF JERK”


“A Taste of Jerk,” the appropriately named kickoff for July’s Grace Foods’ Jamaican Jerk Festival, comes to the VP Records retail store, 170-21 Jamaica Ave. in Queens on Saturday, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.


There will be reggae and soca performances, Caribbean cuisine, an appearance by celebrity chef Wenford Patrick Simpson of B.B. King Blues Club & Grill.


For information, call VP Records at (718) 297-5802. Get details on the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival in Roy Wilkins Park on July 23 at www.jerkfestivalny.com or call (718) 718-425-1177.
