About the Author
James O'Reilly was born and raised in County Cork Ireland. His family moved to America when he was 14 years old. He discovered his fervor for catching bad guys when he watched an undercover officer infiltrate a local gang in his neighborhood, and bring down the entire operation. The excitement of meeting the officer and seeing the busts live sent James on a mission to make the police force. "You can't right every wrong, but you can give it your best." Now retired, with a beautiful wife and six grown children, James has taken to his Winnebago for some traveling, sight-seeing and relaxation.

Habegger is executive editor of Traveler's Tales and is a travel writer.

Sean O'Reilly lives in Peoria, AZ.
