More About the Author

Andrew Hole always saw himself as a writer, well for a few seconds anyhow. Since writing Excuse Me Officer he has gone on to write several tickets that have gone to number 10 - well the proceeds have anyway.

When not eating doughnuts, Andrew can be found on the sofa snoring loudly whilst watching re-runs of the A team. He does have a wife and family, his long suffering wife Sandy Hole, along with their son Doug Hole. Mr Hole has no other real interest's although he has been trying for years to be able to write properly.

His proudest moment is still when he won the egg and spoon race at school, closely followed by joining the police force. He has now been a serving police officer for 15 years and one of his local McDonald's most loyal customers. He swears, that a sausage and egg muffin is the only way to start the day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Grammar, Formatting, and Plagiarism 16 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a reasonable attempt at what life must be like for a police officer, but large parts of the book have been plagiarised from the jokes that float round the internet disguised as "real life emails to police" and so on.
The grammar is poor, and has clearly not been proof read, and the formatting is rubbish - when viewed on black screen, the text remains black. So much for keeping your night vision then... Jokes are repeated (upto 3 times in one case, and it was barely funny the first time) and the author seems to repeat himself a fair bit as well.
There are far better books out there, don't waste your money on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous insight into our Police Force 19 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed reading this book about the day to day activities of a police officer. And I can understand the feelings of this writer and every other officer with regard to the 20% cuts being made, the shortages of vehicles, staff, redundancies and the loss of so many experienced officers through ill health?

Worry not about the poor grammar, punctuation, bad spelling which abounds through the book, just read, enjoy and worry for our police officers and what the future lies ahead for them on the front line.

I will look forward to the next book, perhaps and maybe not written so much from writing as it comes to mind, but more of a book that has been better thought out and laid out. Andrew, just take your time and slow down. Oh! and as your still in the job, thank you and good wishes.

George and Mildred indeed!!! Really funny that was.

The punctuation and grammar are appalling and the many mistakes spoil any enjoyment the reader would get from the storytelling. Very disappointing.
