Podcast: Lawyer writes best-selling romance novel

Legal Talk NetworkThe Wedding Date is San Francisco attorney Jasmine Guillory's first novel, and it's already a USA Today bestseller. In an American Bar Association podcast, "When a pediatric surgeon impulsively asks the mayor’s chief of staff to be his date to his ex-girlfriend’s wedding that weekend, sparks fly. But can the two make a long-distance relationship work? In this episode of the Modern Law Library, Guillory tells the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles that writing served as a stress release from her legal work and functioned as her creative outlet. She discusses the challenges of representation for women of color in the romance industry, and the issues she had to consider when writing about an interracial couple falling in love. Guillory also shares how her background in legal aid helped inspire a subplot of the book, as the heroine tries to win funding for a diversionary program for at-risk teens."
