Objection, Your Honor

With: Rachel Dylan

Congratulations to "Christine", the winner in Rachel's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

You would think after almost a decade of practicing law, I’d want to write books about non-legal topics. But I find myself drawn back into the fictional legal world time and time again.

My new release, EXPERT WITNESS, is about a forensic sketch artist named Sydney Berry who is testifying as an expert witness in a murder trial. The accused is a well-known businessman who has ties to organized crime. Sydney has been through so much in her life, including a violent past. But she is a fighter who refuses to let the past define her. Sydney becomes a target because her testimony could lead to a guilty verdict.

U.S. Marshal Max Preston is fiercely loyal and has a tremendous amount of respect for Sydney—including the fact that she’s willing to testify even given the great risk to her life.

I had so much fun writing this book. Taking my real life courtroom experiences and transferring them into a world with all the excitement and drama but none of the mundane tasks.

Are you a legal junkie when it comes to books and TV shows? Which ones are some of your favorites?

Rachel will be giving away one ebook copy of EXPERT WITNESS to one commenter or email entrant.



Minutes after testifying in a murder trial, sketch artist Sydney Berry is almost killed in a drive-by shooting. United States Marshal Max Preston saves her life then whisks her away to safety. She's his first protected witness, and he'll do everything in his power to keep her safe. But Sydney doesn't want to hide from danger. She is determined to finish her testimony and put a killer away. With potential suspects coming from all corners, Sydney will have to trust Max with her deepest secrets—and her life.

  3. Oh, I am definitely a junkie and NetFlix feeds my addiction. :D I've been catching up on Murder, She Wrote and Columbo and I have more mystery shows waiting their turn. When I had cable I would watch Law & Order on TNT and Rizzoli & Isles. I currently watch NCIS, the original, on Hulu. I watch other genres but it's generally the legal shows that I binge on.:D
