A First Greeting.

I guess introductions are a good place to start, huh? My name is Detective Dallas Holden. I'm a cop, obviously, who lives and works out of the Windy City; otherwise known as, Chicago. One more fact about me, and this one is rather important, I'm a fictional character. I was created by the mind of author S.C. Lang, and I'm the main character of his first novel, Original Sin. OS, as I will call it from now on, is an action-packed murder mystery, and it delves pretty deeply into my life as well as my first case as a detective. What a nightmare that case was. I still have nightmares about it.
I'm not going to give the plot away, of course. That would be cheating. I will, however, tell you all a little about myself. I'm a fairly ordinary person, not too flashy, but not dull and boring either. All I really want is the Great American Dream; a nice house with the white picket fence and a loving wife to come home to every night. Slightly old-fashioned, I grant you, but that's how I was raised. You work hard, play life by the rules, and try to be the best person you can. I come a long line of cops and have cop blood running through my veins. What does that mean exactly? It means I believe there are only two sides to everything; right and wrong. Gray areas don't exist. If you break the law in my town, I'm gonna take you down. It's really as simple as that.
My creator, S.C. Lang has given me this blog so I can express my views on anything I want. I will be utilizing this blog for that purpose, but for now, just introducing myself is enough. I don't want to bore you with my whole life story right off the bat. Don't you just hate when people do that? "Hi, my name is so-and-so, and let me tell you every single detail of my life . . ."
My name is Dallas Holden. I'm a cop. I believe in good and bad. That's a good start.
