About the Guest
Sergeant Gregory Allen Doyle, Upland Police Department, (ret.) was last assigned as a patrol sergeant. During his law enforcement career has served as a gang detective, street gang officer, undercover narcotics officer, school resource officer and patrol officer. Prior to entering law enforcement Sergeant Gregory Doyle served four years in the United States Army in a Mechanized Infantry Battalion. In addition to his law enforcement career, Greg Doyle is a writer who has published articles in professional magazines and the author of four books: The Sting of the Gadfly; God Is Not an Option; The Stinging Salve and The Clarion Call of Christ.

All Fingers and Toes is one of the short stories contained within Greg’s New Book, The Clarion Call of Christ. It begins, “My friends and colleagues often shake their heads in wonder at my tenure as a graveyard patrol supervisor. Over ten years of sleeping during the daylight and coming out at night to work might put me up there with the mythical vampires. While I have seen my share of suckers (meaning the clientele I dealt with), I have yet to have any close calls with Dracula-types. But anything is possible on the late night shift, so I kept my eyes open.”

Additionally, Gregory Doyle writes contemporary Christian music with Associate Pastor Don Maresh (Discovery Christian Church, Moreno Valley); and, together, Greg and Don lead the Good News Praise Band at Discovery and have professionally recorded three CDs of original music: No Other God (2000- 15 songs); The God That I Love (2002 - 19 songs); You're My God (2006 - 23 songs).
