Carsen Taite works by day (and sometimes night) as a criminal defense attorney in Dallas, Texas. Her goal as an author is to spin plot lines as interesting as the cases she encounters in her practice. She is the author of five previously released novels, truelesbianlove.com, It Should be a Crime (a Lambda Literary Award finalist and recipient of a Lavender Certificate award from the Alice B. Readers), Do Not Disturb, Nothing but the Truth, and The Best Defense. Her sixth novel, Slingshot, which, like some of her prior works contains a heavy dose of crime, was released in June 2012.
