I'm a writer and sometimes-lawyer. My work has appeared in Slate, the Washington City Paper, the ABA Journal, Out Of The Storm News, and dozens of other publications. My first novel - Tropical Depression - has just been published by Back Porch Books, a teeny indie publisher out of Seattle.
You can buy Tropical Depression on Amazon!
