Hi Arlene,
First, please forgive me for responding to your message a year late! I'm finally trying to master Goodreads. I'd love to do a Special spin off and others have asked about this too. I just have to come up with a great storyline for her. She is definitely my favorite character to write. Thanks so much for being a fan!(less)

Patricia,
I'm finally making time to master Goodreads and your message was the first one I saw. Sorry for responding a year later! Thanks so much for your support. Buying Time is one of my favorites. I'm finally writing full time and believe it or not, I did more writing when I was practicing law. Now that I have all this time on my hands, I'm finding lots of other things to do in addition to writing. But I'm trying to get myself on a schedule. Thanks for being a fan!(less)

The title of my most recent book is Abuse of Discretion and here’s what I want readers to know when they reach “The End.”

Most of my books—which are legal thrillers—deal with social issues. For example, I’ve written about child sex trafficking (Anybody’s Daughter), gender discrimination (Attorney-Client Privilege) and sexual harassment (In Firm Pursuit). I didn’t start my writing career intendin... Read more of this blog post »

“world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
Pamela Samuels Young, Anybody's Daughter

“freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
Pamela Samuels Young, Anybody's Daughter

“No, I’m just being real. Women don’t leave rich, powerful men. Even when the whole world knows about their man’s sexual indiscretions, they stay. Hillary didn’t leave Bill. Camille is standing by Cosby and Kobe Bryant appeased his wife with a four million dollar diamond ring. I don’t care how smart the woman is or whether she has her own money. The majority of women don’t leave.”
