Dear Reader—

In Defense of an Other (Clink Street Publishing), a young, closeted gay lawyer named Matt Durant is attacked in an alley behind a gay club in the French Quarter and fights back, killing one of his attackers. He is then targeted again, when he’s put on trial for murder. Reviews on Amazon describe it as “thrilling,” “heartbreaking,” and “intense.”

One reviewer wrote it “engaged me on so many levels I was unable to put it down” and the “constitutional questions that the author set forth and the way she did it was pure genius.”
