Former Assistant US Attorney Michele Martinez blogs about the passion she had for her crime-busting job, and how she sublimates it in her legal thriller series here: http://thelipstickchronicles.typepad.com/the_lipstick_chronicles/20...
Me, my only former job worth talking about is writing over 40 romance novels. (Hey, you can earn a good living at romance. Er---you know what I mean.) I envy Michele her real world experience. She brings authentic street cred to her writing. Gotta admire her argument today, too.
