Goodreads: Joining a Community of Readers During the Holidays

The holidays are fun, sometimes exhausting and upon us. When I find myself frazzled and unable to endure one more football game (never thought I’d say that) I plan to scurry into an unoccupied corner and read a book. It is almost as healthy as a mindfulness excercise. I guess the point of all this […]

Sunsets, Raptors and Living in the Sky

Tell them what you told them.

When I first became a trial lawyer a mentor gave me some terrific advice about connecting with a jury. He said, “tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, and then tell them what you told them.” Tomorrow I will be signing my new book Anahuac at The Twig Book Shop at the […]
