Vanderpool is a life-long fan of Crime Suspense and Thriller fiction who began to write his own in 2006 following an eye-opening medical procedure.

Sargent Mike Neal and Detective Cris Vega solve crimes in Vanderpool’s novels ranging from murders in the Kurdish community to a Belle Meade mansion and draw from the worlds of politics, music, and sports.
