A Big WoW for Lust for Justice!

I thought I'd give a look-see to Amazon's bestseller list in the category of Biographies of Lawyers and Judges and there was Lust for Justice in 15th position!!! What a wonderful WOW!!! This book was published in 2010 and it's still going strong on the bestseller list in the world's biggest bookstore.  That's breath-taking!

I must say, the wisdoms in this book serve me every day in one way or another, and I'm not even a lawyer. And I must also say that in today's world which is so bereft of heart, soul or humanity, this book restores all of the above. It's a rare thing. The voices that restore us to our humanity are few and far between. I feel honored to have written about two of them: J. Tony Serra and Marcel Marceau.

Still no trial date given for Serra's next humongous case about Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow involving CA Senator Leland Yee. There are so many defendants (29) that the trial may be broken up into 2 parts. I look forward to being in the courtroom with my sketch pad on my knees.

I'm in the process of combining my Lust for Justice blog with my Marcel & Me blog into one Author's Blog.

News: Still no court date set for Tony Serra's Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow case. This case is so big and so complex that it's taking its sweet time to untangle. I look forward to being there in the courtroom again drawing Tony at what he does best: going for the jugular and laying bare the B.S.

I have a huge collection of Tony art that I've done over the years. It's pretty stunning! If anyone is interested in the entire collection -- no cherry picking -- and is ready to offer me a price I cannot refuse, I could be interested in selling it. It's a collector's item. You can contact me at

That's all for now.

Book Expo America

Book Expo America (BEA), the 2nd largest book fair in the world, opens today in NYC. Both my books: Lust for Justice, and Marcel and Me (I see that the ampersand of & used in the title is messing up the name of the book on this blogsite) will be represented by ForeWord Reviews in the main hall, Booth 747. Look for them. Lust for Justice is #37 this morning on Amazon's digital bestseller list in its category of legal biographies.

I'm doing a reading of Marcel & Me at the Rising Moon Gallery in Abiquiu, NM this Sunday, June 1 at 3pm. The Gallery is off Hwy 84, across the street from Bode's Store, near the Post office. Spread the word. Hope to see you there!
