HOW A DEATH THREAT LEAD ME FROM BEING A PROSECUTOR TO AN AUTHOR
“I think everyone should focus on situational awareness. Stay alert, and stay alive.” – Laura Akers
I was raised in the Imperial Valley, California, by parents who worked in education. As an adopted only child, I spent most of my time reading books, being a “band geek” playing trumpet and piano, and riding horses.
After law school, I became a prosecuting attorney and handled the worst violent crimes. A person I convicted threatened me, and I trained with a former CIA operative in self-defense. This led to my creation of Dior or Die’s protagonist, Davia Glenn. She’s someone who refuses to quit, no matter the odds, and it’s a philosophy I live by.
If you want to hear my voice, stop by the Beta reader/Writer’s Critique or Thriller/Mystery Space on Clubhouse where I’m a co-moderator. We discuss writing craft and generally devolve into moments of ridiculous writer humor every Wednesday.
While this all sounds rather achievement-driven, I also like to take beach photos, lift weights, and listen to audiobooks. In the evenings, I chill while watching Korean dramas.
I LOVE to hear from my readers. No, you’re not bugging me at all. Use the contact page or email: [email protected]
