Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
My next planned book is for those people who have been fired and who believe that they have a legal basis to bring an action against their former employer. It will outline why the vast majority of people who are fired have no legal recourse, and why the laws are so stacked against the American worker. I also hope to show people that the road through litigation is hard, expensive and time-consuming. If you decide to take that road, I will show you some of things you can expect to experience. I will also explain some of tips and tricks to making litigation a worthwhile experience and how to avoid some of the negativity that surrounds a lawsuit.
Who are your favorite authors?
I really enjoy John Grisham's work but I wish sometimes he would have the lawyer-protagonist enjoy being a lawyer more. I love my work and feel it is very fulfilling but most of his fictional lawyers are demoralized and unhappy. I have to say his books are often very true to life and he has some hilarious scenes of young lawyers that are right on the mark. I also enjoy the works of James A. Michener, Charles Dickens, and Agatha Christie for fiction.
