Darden North, M.D. – a Doctor Whose Writing You Can Read
Darden North is a native of Mississippi and a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist in Jackson, MS. His work lends unmistakable authenticity to his medical thrillers. Set in the Deep South, North’s contemporary novels are built around intense -- yet believable – characters who are often embroiled in controversy.

His three novels medical thrillers are HOUSE CALL, POINTS OF ORIGIN, and most recently, FRESH FROZEN. A few years ago, Darden North hung up his golf clubs for a laptop – but on occasion is still spotted with a croquet mallet or garden shovel. He is writing a fourth novel as he continues to deliver babies and maintain a full gynecological practice. His tag line is: “A doctor whose writing you can read.”

Father's Day Present Comes a Little Early

The day was Mother's Day 2009, and the mother of my two children was enjoying her coffee in bed before we were to get ready for church. I had taken my own mother out to lunch the day before in Jackson, MS, and we had a very nice visit.

As sort of an early Father's Day present for me, however, I checked my email that Sunday morning to learn that my third novel, FRESH FROZEN, had just received two additional national book awards, for which I am thankful: Winner, Best Cover Design and Finalist, Regional Fiction in the 2009 National Indie Excellence Awards.
