Do You Have What It Takes to be in the FBI?


We’ve all thought about what it would be like to have the title of Special Agent for the FBI. The lure happens every time we watch an exciting movie or read a book that features the FBI.


One of my dear friends is the media coordinator for Houston’s FBI. When we’re together, her phone is fingertips away. Her role is fascinating, and if I were younger . . . yes, I’d like to be in the FBI.


We understand leadership abilities are essential, then add courage, stamina, intelligence, and patriotism.


But what are the real requirements? Take a look and see if you can begin the vigorous training.


  1. I am a US citizen.
  2. I am between the ages of 24 and 37.
  3. I have not have been convicted of a felony.
  4. I don’t use drugs. The FBI also doesn’t want those who fail an urinalysis drug test. Check for specifics.
  5. I have paid my student loan according to the agreement.
  6. If I’m a male, I registered for the Selective Service when I turned eighteen-years-old.
  7. I have not devised a scheme to overthrow the US government.
  8. I have paid my court-ordered child support.
  9. I pay taxes, not evade them.
  10. I can pass Top Secret Security clearance.


Congratulations! If the above applies to you, move on to see if you can be a part of the FBI’s Selection Process!


  1. I possess a four-year college degree.
  2. I am in great physical condition.
  3. I have skills that would enhance my career in the FBI.
  4. I am mentally and physically prepared for 13-20 weeks of Academic and Tactical training at the FBI Academy.

About Deep Extraction:


FBI Task Force, Book 2


A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.
