My “day job” is the practice of law and my writing consumes much of the rest of my day. No, I have never chased an ambulance, nor have I ever dropped my card at an accident scene. Yes, I have heard all the jokes, or at least all of the jokes that I would care to hear on the subject. Having said this, I haven’t written the first word about attorneys or the world in which they operate. There are some great authors out there on the subject of “lawyering” and I refuse to inject my “other” profession into my passion for writing science fiction or the occasional more mainstream fiction. Besides, as an attorney, I defend a lot of civil cases, which usually has all the excitement of watching paint dry on a damp day. Of course, if I did write about my “day job”, it is likely I could get a patent for the latest sleep aid!
