Leighton Rockafellow Author Interview
Diminished Capacity follows a hardworking lawyer as he takes on two cases that bring more attention, and work, than he expected. What were some sources that informed this novels development?
Every lawyer wants to be altruistic. The reality is every lawyer has an office to run, bills to pay and a family to support. Larry’s character was formed before the book was written.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
The themes are suspense, conflict, grief and determination. Larry never gives up and he is never intimidated.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I have two more Larry Ross novels completed and one more “in the can.” My goal was to create a repeat character that readers would identify with and want to follow.

An up and coming lawyer in Tucson, Arizona, Larry Ross takes just about any case that walks through his door. But his next client may prove to be more than even he can handle. Tom Rogers has just been accused of brutally murdering his business partner, Art Mendoza. Larry decides to represent Tom in the capital murder case, even though it looks like Tom is guilty. But while waiting for the trial, Larry makes a tactical error and accepts another high-profile case-a complicated products liability case against a major auto manufacturer. Now, with two work intensive cases to deal with, Larry is drowning in responsibility. His one man practice is suddenly catapulted into the local and national spotlight, and things only get worse when Tom leans on Larry for support in his personal life. Larry’s stress level has just about reached its limit and both trials have yet to start. Can he win both cases and keep his sanity? There’s only one way to find out. Intrigue, murder, and mystery combine in Diminished Capacity, a first-rate legal thriller from talented newcomer Leighton Rockafellow. Like this: Like Loading...
