Maine State Troopers lead interesting lives filled with humor, intrigue, sadness, and, yes, foolishness. The foolish part comes from the people they encounter.
Retired trooper Mark Nickerson has the pedigree to write a book about his trooper career, and he sure enough has the stories. His Dad, Millard Nickerson, had a long and distinguished career in the State Police. Mark dedicated the book to his Dad, whose life he “aspired to have.”
Mark also has a one-man cheering squad, retired game warden and now-very-successful author John Ford – who encouraged (ok, badgered) Mark into writing a column called “Real Life Stories” in local newspapers. And those stories are what you get in his new book, Blue Lights in the Night, published by North Country Press.
