Jonathan Miller '88 will sign his books "Crater County", "Rattlesnake Lawyer" and "Amarillo in August" at Borders, 1600 Pearl st, in Boulder from 12 to 3 on Saturday October 8 before the CU-Texas A and M homecoming game.Crater County is a few dozen books away from selling out its first printing. It's the story of a female CU Law grad exiled to a small New Mexico town after choking at the Olympic trials. Working as a prosecutor on a triple murder, she falls in love with the defense attorney, but as more people get murdered she worries that the lawyer is imitating his client. Jonathan swears that it is not based on a true story....yet. You can read the first ten pages of Crater County, and Jon's other books on amazon.com. Rebeccasreads.com hailed Jonathan as the "new voice of contemporary legal fiction" and the book is on the 2004 Master List of Southwestern books of the year. Later this month, Jonathan will lecture at Albany Law School and at USC School of Professional Writing on how lawyers and other professionals can become published authors. Don't miss the chance to meet Jonathan at Borders before CU crushes the Aggies.Rattlesnake Lawyer has also been optioned as a potential TV series.
