Tell us a little about your latest book?
Jackson Cooper, MD’s first day as an intern ends tragically with the sudden death of a patient and his duty to comfort the family. It is a story of medical suspense, tragedy, and terror, as a physician deals with the world of surgery.
The surgeon’s knot is a tie used in surgery which the intern practices ceaselessly. The knot refers, as well, to the tangled world of the protagonist.
His life soon becomes burnout resulting from events beyond his control as well as destructive behavior. Physicians, patients, and cases ranging from humorous to tragic are present. A Surgeon’s Knot is a story of the dignity of medicine, the overwhelming duty to man, failure and recovery.
