The day I graduated Tulane I never thought I’d put to use my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I thought it was just that—BS. Wrong again.

In fact, understanding human nature and mindset has been extremely valuable for me as a lawyer and a writer. Behavior boils down to one thing: motive. If you carefully seek out the “why” of a person’s conduct, you’ll arrive at the answer underlying their actions.

If you plan on attempting to solve any one of the Tug Wyler Mystery novels, I’d suggest you keep tabs on the motive of each character.
