Reviews like the one from Midwest Book Review make the work of writing fiction worth all of the time, effort and energy.
Here is what they wrote about the first book in the series: The Fragrance Shed By A Violet: Murder in the Medical Center:
Midwest Book Review said “A fine balance between suspense and emotional character development, The Fragrance Shed by a Violet is a murder mystery that reaches deep into a primal fear..”
One of the questions I am frequently asked is whether I started out to write a medical mystery series.
No, in fact, I am surprised that here in January, 2017, I am writing the 4th in the Dr. Lindsey McCall medical mystery series.
But then life is like that, isn’t it? A series of surprises, many which hurt and maim and some which seem to take everything we have to deal with them.
These are the reasons I have grown to love these characters. Their fictionalized lives and fanciful story lines deal with the most gripping issues of life.
With each story, the challenge to myself is always the same. Can I create characters who can be heard and seen, better yet, felt as he reveals himself to the reader?
In The Price for Genius, the 3rd book released at the end of 2016, I introduce an assassin, Joe Cairns.
