Incorporating the Law Into Your Legal Thrillers
Few things are more disconcerting for the savvy reader than spotting mistakes. It takes the reader out of the book and erodes trust with the author. On the other hand, one of the great pleasures of reading is being immersed in another world and learning the rules and customs of that world. Incorporating legal aspects into your writing presents these risks and rewards.
In this session, writers learn about general concepts concerning the legal system and trial practice. In addition, writers learn about how to handle preliminary and advanced legal research. Along the way, Adam tells a few anecdotes about his own legal practice, and how he incorporates it into his fiction.
Adam Mitzner is the author of five novels based in the law—Conflict of Interest (a suspense magazine book of the year), A Case of Redemption (ABA Silver Gavel award-winner for fiction), Losing Faith, The Girl From Home, and Dead Certain (Amazon bestseller).
