After over 30 years as both a defense lawyer and prosecutor, I often say: "You coudn't make a reality show about what I've experienced...no one would believe it! I write mystery/suspense novels about these funny, odd, tragic, and gripping stories.

That's a wide open question! Here's more than you probably wanted to know. I'm a mystery author and dog lover. (My papillons and I are learning clicker training and canine freestyle.) The first book in my detective series is RACING THE DEVIL, written under the pseudonym E. Michael Terrell. I sound like a cozy writer, but my books are far from cozy. They're PI novels, fairly gritty, I call my protagonist, Jared, a hardboiled hero with heart. I help organize the Killer Nashville Crime Literature Conference. I was a special ed teacher for 12 years and now work for an educational assessment company. OF course, I'd love to be able to write full time. Your turn! Now tell me all about you.
