Award-winning writer Don Bullis retired in 2002 after a career in New Mexico law enforcement that included stints as county sheriff’s deputy and detective sergeant, town marshal, state organized crime commissioner, and criminal intelligence operational supervisor. He was a small-town newspaper editor before he entered law enforcement.
Born in Bowling Green, Ohio, Don has made New Mexico his home since the 1960s. He lives in Rio Rancho with his wife Gloria.
You would be hard put to find anyone more versed in the state’s history than he is. If there is anything Bullis does not know about New Mexico history and its Wild West outlaws, chances are good no one else knows it either.
