I am often asked how did I create the character who first appeared on national television In February 2011 and again as a creative collaboration in the novel (The Specialist The Costa Rica Job 2013 by CPS Http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/2/prweb10402288.htm )
The character is based on my real life as I was a Former Federal Agent and am a retired US Army soldier. In the Army as a Specialist I travelled and worked on special projects and had a Top Secret clearence and worked for the National Crime Information Center and later worked for the Defense Investigative Service, Naval Investigative Service and finally for The Office of Counter Intelligence for another agency. When I approached my younger brother to write the book about The Specialist, I specified the character live in Santa Monica CA, operate a BMW Z4 same as my car, have my persona and of course wear the clothing, jewelry I wear; In short have my life style; to give my fans a taste of what I am like in my everyday life. The fans come up to me and request on social medial that I give them a name as I did on Survivor CBS. There are many pictures of fans holding the novel see http://fliptu.com/PhillipSheppard as they want to be an honorary member of StealthRUS the alliance names on Survivor Redemption Island 2011 and Fans vs Favorites 2013.
As you read the novel you get to know my dog Spike, as he is in it and a character similar to my son is in it. You see my neighborhood where I have lived for many years I first came here in 1974 (Santa Monica).
Additionally, I worked briefly as a private investigator in MD. I also worked for Pinkerton Investigations as a dispatcher years ago.
I hope the fans who asked me about this sees this post and lets me know. I met you catching my flight from Toronto. Phillip Sheppard The Specialist on Twitter @PSheppardTV phillipsheppard cbstelevisionstudios rollingstone usatoday
