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 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 (July 2011). She is currently working on her sixth novel, Slingshot, which, like several of her prior works contains a heavy dose of crime.
