The latest edition of The Paralegal Voice, “Talking Murder and Mayhem with Sue Ann Jaffarian: Paralegal & Fiction Writer,” co-hosted by Vicki Voisin and me, is now available at Legal Talk Network.

In this episode, we welcome Sue Ann Jaffarian, a paralegal for Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC in Los Angeles, and author of the best-selling series, The Odelia Grey Mysteries.

Sue Ann talks about balancing dual careers as a very busy corporate paralegal and successful fiction writer; her “large and in charge” fictional paralegal, Odelia Patience Grey; and what’s next for both Sue Ann and Odelia. Throw in vampires, writing advice, and dealing with weight prejudice – this is a lively discussion you won’t want to miss!

Also in this episode, Sue Ann reveals:
  • Her tips for getting into or making the change to corporate or health law
  • How she got her start as a fiction writer
  • How she balances working as a full-time paralegal with writing several novels a year
  • Her tips for would-be writers
  • Information re Book No. 6 in The Odelia Grey Mysteries due June 2011
