I wrote Dangerous Practice with Manning Wolfe, author of three legal thrillers featuring the Texas Lady Lawyer, Merit Bridges. We both live in Texas, and I grew up spending weekends and summers down on the Gulf Coast, which is where Dangerous Practice is set. The story grew out of a screenplay I'd written years ago that was just begging for some more suspense and treachery, so that's what Manning and I added. Manning co-authored a series of short crime fiction thrillers called "Bullet Books Speed Reads" because you get a good shot of thrills in a short amount of time. Dangerous Practice is #8 in that series, and you can go to www.bulletbooksspeedreads.com to see the other books.
