Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and currently live in Long Island. I am a tennis enthusiast and active practitioner of Yoga. I became a physician at the age of twenty-four and am now retired. My lifelong experience in medicine has given me the keen insight to portray the realistic issues plaguing young physicians depicted in this book.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I became fascinated with books as a teenager, using them to escape the conflicts of my own life and enter into the worlds created by the authors. It seems that I have been writing something or other forever, but only recently launched this, my first novel.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Robert James Waller, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Michael Connelly. I love to read compelling novels and psychological thrillers, as well as historical fiction. I am inspired by Buddhist philosophy as well as all the people that I have loved in my life.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
“Every Third Night” is an eye-opening yet poignant novel set in a busy, dehumanizing and unyielding New York City residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1984. It brings the reader into the real world of medicine at a time of limited supervision and brutal duty hours, through the vantage points of young physicians enduring stressful conflicts and volatile relationships.
As the protagonist and his colleagues grapple with the overwhelming friction of their circumstances, the intertwined subplots collide and come crashing down when a haunting mishap leaves the program reeling and their lives forever transformed.
