Barbara C. Sattler Ms.

30 years in the criminal justice system, first as a criminal defense attorney and then as a Judge in City and Superior Court. I was on the criminal and juvenile court bench and presiding Drug Court Judge. As a lawyer I tried over 100 jury cases in state and federal court including murder, sexual assault, conspiracy to sell weapons to the IRA and drug smuggling. When I retired I began writing novels about lawyers who practice criminal defense. The books focus on trials as well as interpersonal relationships of the characters. I have self-published "Dog Days," "Anne Levy's Last Case" and "My Name is Molly." My latest novel which is almost finished is titled "Benchmarks" and tracks the characters in the other novels, one who has just been appointed to be a judge. Reviews cite my obvious familiarity with the criminal justice system. I have been reviewed in the Arizona Star, Tucson Dog, The Champion (magazine of the National Association of Criminal Defense) and Kirkus. I am on the board of the Haven, a women's drug rehab program and the Transverse Myelitis Association,(TMA) which supports women and chidren with rare neurological diseases and funds research. All proceeds of my books go to the TMA.
