Elaine Jemmett was born in 1960 in Toronto, Canada, the youngest child of three. When Elaine was ten the family moved to the country. Nearest friends were far away, and Elaine spent a lot of her free time rambling in the woods with the family dog, feeding a deep love of nature and developing an already over-active imagination. She studied English Literature at Toronto's York University and has worked as a legal editor and author's representative. When not writing, she can usually be found attempting to quench a dire addiction to iced tea.

I have, however, managed to fritter away entire days and weeks and months without writing, caught up in work and family and all the myriad distractions that so easily keep one from getting down to the job, and the joy, of writing. The solution to that is, of course, “place backside in chair.” But when I have no idea what happens next, I know it’s time to leave the story alone and do something else for an hour, or sometimes for the rest of the day.

The only other Grisham book I've read was The Firm and I found this book very different. It's incredibly cynical and really quite funny, if you don't mind black humor. There's really no protagonist, and no "good guys" so you remain somewhat detached ...more
