I gained great reviews and went on to produce and direct a number of plays throughout my elementary school years.

I just did something on a show on UPN called "Girlfriends" that will be on television in February. I am actually a much better actor today than I was in 1996, believe it or not.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
I no longer teach law. But when I did I advised my students that they should never accept a case if it meant that by doing so you couldn't sleep at night.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
I suppose that one of the reasons I wrote "In Contempt" was because of the money. After the trial I came to realize that there were things that I needed to do if I was to protect myself and my family, so there were some selfish reasons for it.

I think it hurt my performance because I stopped being me. That won't ever happen again.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
I think that as I continue to write, my writing I hope will become more controversial and more provocative.

I think that the mere fact that I'm doing it ought to inspire someone. In junior high school the counselor suggested that I focus on wood shop and metal shop.

Quotation of Christopher Darden
I was very concerned about my image and what people said about me and how I looked on television during the Simpson case.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
I'm real bent on dialogue. I'm just a little bit crazy and when you put that along with 20 years as a criminal lawyer, it's pretty easy to come up with some interesting plots.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
If nothing else, I'm very proud of the overall quality of all three of my books.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
In fact, some reviewers have said that as they got into the story they forgot that the protagonist is a black woman. They were moved by the story - by the people as a whole - and not by the little things.
Quotation of Christopher Darden

It did not prepare me for writing or "Power of Attorney." However, what it did is that it forced me out of the DA's office. I stopped getting that county check.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
It would have been easier to have a male protagonist, but I didn't want people to assume that Nikki Hill was me in her entirety because a lot of people just don't like me and I don't think they would be interested in reading about me, even in the fictional context.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
It's much like writing a screenplay with someone else and that's how we view it, I think.

It's too late for that - trying to second guess it. It's over. I'm worried about how to get the kids through school and still write and practice law and take power of attorney.

Quotation of Christopher Darden
Sometimes I have trouble articulating some things or describing things in a way that I think is necessary. But I never run out of ideas.

Quotation of Christopher Darden
That's the thing about us lawyers - if at all possible, we will consume each other.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
The events of the day inspired me to become a lawyer.

Quotation of Christopher Darden
The main thing is that you have a good editor - one that believes in you and who will give you the feedback that you need to produce a good book.
Quotation of Christopher Darden
