Welcome to my blog! I write about literature and the law.
I’m the mother of three and a civil rights attorney at a public interest organization in the United States. The Misfortune of Knowing is my personal blog. I discuss the law here, but I don’t provide legal advice.
If you’re curious about the title of my blog, see Dating Rules for “Ordinary” Heroines (Hat Tip to Jane Austen).
- A Case of First Impression (a “courtroom drama” inspired by Pride and Prejudice) (March 2019)
- Anusha of Prospect Corner (a Middle Grade, multicultural novel inspired by Anne of Green Gables) (my twins are my co-authors)
- Amelia Elkins Elkins (inspired by real-life litigation & Jane Austen’s Persuasion) (Contemporary Fiction)
- Two Lovely Berries (featuring identical twins struggling for individuality) (New Adult)

A note about reviews: I no longer accept review copies from authors or publishers, but I am interested in learning about emerging authors and new books. So, feel free to say hello. I might not be able to respond to every message, but I will read all of them. I purchased all of the books reviewed on this blog (unless otherwise stated in the post).
