Bringing My Real Life Into Fictional Writing
So, I’m a lawyer. A trial lawyer to be exact. I’ve spent the past 16 years arguing my heart out to juries but honestly, it wasn’t that big of a transition to bring my creativity in oral prose to the pages.
I’ve been dying to write a romance with a legal theme floating in the background. Legal Affairs was the perfect opportunity and I have more ideas for future books that revolve around lawyers, hot sex, gooey romance and interesting cases.
In Legal Affairs, I went light on the legal action. This was mainly because each volume has a limited budget of words, but there is a defined case that our heroine, McKayla Dawson handles in this story. It’s an actual case based on one of the very first cases I handled when I was a young lawyer fresh out of law school. The factual details are straight from my own files and it was an amazing trip down memory lane.
One of my biggest challenges as a trial lawyer was getting a jury to step into my client’s shoes… to make them feel in their gut how much my client had been affected. It’s been an incredible journey to make my readers feel an emotional tie to the characters in my stories. When that connection happens, it is beyond awesome.
Legal Affairs is a serial romance with a whole lot of hot and a little bit of funny. It has six volumes that will be released every two weeks, the first one, entitled Objection, on January 10, 2014. Each title is between 12,000-15,000 words with the last one close to 20,000 words.

McKayla “Mac” Dawson
Mac is hearts and flowers, wanting a deep connection with a man that she can love throughout eternity. So it’s surprising that she would have an anonymous, one-night stand with a complete stranger. It’s ironic that said stranger turns out to be the one man she ends up losing her heart to. Mac is a new lawyer, struggling to build a career at the same time trying to manage her devilishly handsome boss who wants in her pants. She’s hilariously snarky, independent and loving. She’s also brilliant and has moments of deviousness that serve her well, particularly when dealing with the ego of the great Matthew Connover.
Matthew Connover is a litigation god. He’s a sex god. Every lawyer wants to be like him, every woman wants to be with him. He’s just that good. When Mac Dawson blows into his life, his world is turned upside down. He is hopelessly drawn to her but wants to keep his own heart protected. Matt thinks the best way to do that is to keep their relationship only about the amazing, hot and deviant sex they have, while Mac has other ideas on the matter. As you get to know Matt, you see there are reasons for his reluctance to give love a try, but he’s so damn hot, you are always thinking to yourself… how bad can this sex only thing really be?
USA Today Best-Selling author, Sawyer Bennett, is a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn’t have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
