Last week, I truly enjoyed meeting the Book Club at the Lowman Home. Nancy Tuten, the group’s coordinator, helped distribute a collection of my short stories to the ten members in advance, including the two about film professor Ham and his daughter Jessica, “Mr. Claude North,” “Only the Sacrifice Knows,” “Nectar of the Gods,” “Long in the Tooth,” “Apple’s Lure,” and “Ghost of a Chance.” I spoke about my life, ideas, and writing, then answered questions about my critique groups and plays. When Nancy asked, one member identified "the pirate story" as her favorite. A lovely visit and lunch after.

Released July 7, 2015, Lawyer for the Dog by Lee Robinson (Thomas Dunne Books) is the perfect summer read. Former public defender and now family lawyer Sally Bright Baynard is assigned by her ex-husband, Joe, a family court judge, to represent a miniature schnauzer named Sherman in a high profile Charleston, SC, divorce case. While Sally struggles with caring for her mother who has Alzheimer's, evaluating Joe’s feelings for her and whether they have a future together, and being attracted to Sherman’s charming vet, Sherman works his way into her heart and helps her find solutions. A sequel is forthcoming!
