I’m Ellen Swain. I’ve made my living off crime for years. Once I stopped dating juvenile delinquents, I started representing them in court. I’ve worked as a lifeguard, a law professor, a playwright, a newspaper reporter and a judicial law clerk. I’m revising my first crime novel and writing a book to help students with learning differences navigate law school. I am equally interested in saints, sages and sociopaths. Beauty and darkness.
