My very special guest today is Mark M. Bello ...
Mark M. Bello is an attorney, civil justice advocate, award-winning author of the Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series, and co-host of the Justice Counts Podcast. He retired, about 5 years ago, and began his new career as a writer. Nothing unique about that, right? But Mark did this at the age of 65! He draws upon his 45 years of courtroom experience, a passion for justice, and a creative writing style that has penned captivating novels for his readers and hard-hitting commentaries on controversies in the news. Mark was one of the first attorneys to sue the Catholic Church over sexual abuse by clergy, an experience that inspired his debut novel, Betrayal of Faith. Back then, clergy abuse was a dirty little secret, and many lawyers extracted extra settlement dollars by agree to confidential settlements. Mark persuaded his clients to pursue the case publicly, and the offending priest was eventually defrocked.
