More About the Author

I am the only practicing lawyer in the state of Oregon--and only the second in the hundred and fifty year history of the state--to be disbarred from the practice of law and get reinstated. I got disbarred because I stole about a thousand dollars of client money and because I was an out-of-control alcoholic. I got reinstated because I quit drinking and gave up my evil ways. The State Bar didn't want me to be reinstated even if I had given up my evil ways, but after a decision by the Oregon Supreme Court in 2003, there was nothing the Bar could do about it. You can Google me and get the whole story in disgusting detail elsewhere.

When disbarred I do blue collar work. I load trucks. I drive forklift. When not disbarred I practice law. Currently I practice elder law in Fairview, Oregon. Fairview is a suburb of Portland. Elder law concerns itself with the legal issues that crop up when people get very old. My law practice hasn't made me a ton of money, but I earn enough to afford a modest home in Fairview. The best part of the job is that the work can be done while sitting in a chair. Compared to loading trucks it is hardly work at all.

I also write books. I am not that good at it, but I enjoy it. The books I write are un-serious. They are comedies or murder mysteries. I write them for other alcoholics like me--people who found that drinking didn't work out for them. The books are also for the groupies: the counselors, parole officers, psychologists, lawyers, judges and bartenders who make a living off of alcoholics. I like all these folks and fill my books with them. Some people who don't know a thing about alcoholics say they like the books too, but they are probably lying.

I wrote Malady Manor in the nineties and revised it in 2009. It is a tragi-comedy about surviving in an alcohol treatment center. I wrote The Duke of Morrison Street in 2008. It is a mystery starring--guess what--an alcoholic probate lawyer who gets in a lot of trouble with the Bar. The narrator is not me though. I gave up all my evil ways.

I have another mystery starring Leopold Larson half-done on my laptop. I will publish it when I finish.

Format: Paperback
If you enjoy mystery novels and have an interest in the adventures of lawyers combined with the adventures of drinking and not drinking then you will enjoy this book. Have you ever felt like your life was a sitcom? With the funny situations and strange occurences that happen? That is kind of what these AA meetings remind me of. Interesting read and well written.
