I’m a dermatologist and dermatopathologist (the study and interpretation of skin biopsies) on staff at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. While I’ve written and published my fair share of scientific papers, I thought I’d like to try my hand at novel writing. Since most authors “write what they know” I have sought to do the same within the “medical thriller” genre of novels using conditions, diseases and medical agents found in that discipline. Obviously, none of these have been published despite multiple efforts to obtain an agent or publisher. Since I have put more hours into these things writing, editing, re-editing and re-re-editing than I care to think about, it seemed a waste to have them simply taking up space in my computer. Perhaps someone else would like to read them. Perhaps not. After all, as I have written to numerous prospective agents, what I think about the quality of my writing is irrelevant. It’s what others think that matters. It may be quite good. It may reek. It is what it is. If you are searching for something new to read in the medical thriller genre, take a look. I hope you enjoy yourself. If you are in the publishing or literary agent business trolling for new material and/or authors, email me and we’ll talk. I have a good day job and don’t need the money, so if these eventually find their way into print, bully. If they never do, life goes on. One word of warning, however. While these novels are neither graphic nor gory, they are also without any profanity or sexual content. This work was done for the glorification of God.

So that’s pretty much me in a nutshell. If you would like to email a message, please feel free to do so.
