Larry D. Thompson, Thriller Writer


Larry D Thompson spent most of his professional life as a trial lawyer. He tried over 300 cases, winning more than 95% of them. About ten years ago he took what he learned in the courtroom and started writing legal thrillers. He has now written six novels that have garnered around 4.5 stars on Amazon. Usually about 70% of his readers rate his stories with 5 stars with another 20% rating them with 4 stars. Then there are a few who just do not appreciate a really good novel. Larry graduated from The University of Texas (Hook 'em Horns) with BBA and JD degrees. His brother was best selling author, Thomas Thompson. After Tommy died way too young, the idea that he would carry on the family tradition lodged somewhere in the far reaches of his mind and finally surfaced when his youngest son graduated from college. His last writing class was freshman English, and that was many years ago. Still, when he started writing he had read thousands of novels and thought he understood what works and what doesn't. Larry writes about what he knows best...lawyers, courtrooms and trials. The legal thriller is his genre. His prose is spare. Like Elmore Leonard he believes that he should provide just enough description to trigger the imagination of the reader to flesh out the character or scene. That makes the reader more than just an observer. He or she actually gets to participate in the creative process.
