Introduction I'm an opinionated mom, writer and lawyer. I'm not currently practicing. I prosecuted for nearly fifteen years, so my kids call me a drill sergeant. I hope to use the time off to finally finish revising my first legal thriller and I just completed the second draft of my second novel another legal thriller/domestic noir. I'd love to write an unreliable narrator next.
