Jamie Lisa Forbes knows tough. She was a rancher in Wyoming, raising two kids and 350 head of cattle on 23,000 acres owned by her father’s family. The winters were brutal, the summers searing, the tending unending.
She also is undaunted by intellectual wrangling. The ranch was sold in 1993, Forbes’s marriage ended in divorce soon after, and she moved to North Carolina and began work as a paralegal. In 1998, she entered law school at age 48. Now 56, she is forging her third career as a lawyer working on her own in Greensboro with a focus on estates, family law, workers’ compensation and general litigation.
Yet for all that, her most challenging work has been facing a blank computer screen. The rancher-turned-lawyer wanted to be one more thing: a writer. She mastered that as well.
