I've made my living off crime for several years now. A former public defender turned law professor, I've defended individuals charged with crime ranging from petty theft to homicide and spent enough time inside jail cells to qualify for serving a sentence for burglary. Now I write about crime and humor pieces to lighten the load. My first play, about a lawyer whose client persuades her he's holding her hostage, Jailhouse Conversion, was staged in 2008 & 2009 in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm nearly finished with my first novel about a lawyer who represents a spiritual teacher in a murder trial. My website is ellenswainveen.com. Do you like Twitter? Find me @ellensv
