At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started writing a book in 1989 after a reckless homicide jury trial. Unfortunately, I got away from it, and at that time, no one had really entered into the legal thriller genre except Scott Turow. I think I missed a real opportunity there.

Attorney James Crosson is in the grips of despair, blaming himself for his wife’s death. A widow hires him to pursue a wrongful death case on behalf of her late husband who died in a seemingly ordinary car wreck. Crosson must confront his own tragic loss and gambling debts as he unravels the plot hatched by a deranged corporate tyrant who will stop at nothing to conceal the truth, take down the lawyer, and preserve his empire. With Vegas goons closing in and everything at stake, Crosson goes all in one last time with no realistic chance of winning the case or surviving the evil arrayed against him.
