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. 

While this all sounds rather achievement-driven, I also likes to take beach photos and listen to audiobooks.  In the evenings, I chill with a cup of tea, my guy, and our two cats 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]
