Edward Bicket is a romanticist, humanitarian, and retired police officer from Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. His life has been dedicated to volunteer work and helping others, doing random acts of kindness, and always seeking ways to please others. Being the consummate professional in his policing career, he needed to suppress his emotions. It was a necessary mechanism to deal with the daily challenges of policing, and also important for him to be a symbol of strength to others around him, as he carried various leadership roles. Finally able to relax his emotional fortitude upon retiring, he openly places his vulnerabilities on display and releases his emotions into the page to share with the world. He is a gentle, caring man, that welcomed the challenge of facing danger and all evils of the job. He always led by example, would put himself at the front of any dangerous situation, could never turn his head away from something wrong or inappropriate, and has walked through life offering his hand to anyone in need. After his long tumultuous marriage, and a 35-year career in Policing, he abruptly retreated from the immense stress his previous life had brought upon him and embarked on a romantic journey. In early 2020, the global pandemic forced him into isolation after a near-death experience from contracting COVID-19. The prolonged isolation took him to a dark place, but his love for humanity did not wane, nor did his desire to bring happiness and sunshine to others, so he turned to his passion for writing to pour his emotions out upon the page. With the pandemic raging, and his health weakened from the virus, he recognized twilight was upon him and embarked on a tireless journey of writing, to release his emotions, before the final curtain fell.
