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.”

" Southern Gothic" Author Presentation at 29th Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration

I was honored to present as a writer at the 29th annual Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration, exploring the topic “Southern Gothic.” This time-honored tradition has a reputation as one of the South's most significant conferences devoted to literature, history, film, and culture. The event was held at the Natchez (MS) Convention Center February 22-24, 2018, and I spoke Saturday, February 24 at 3:30 pm. Most of the program was free-of-charge, and there were book signings.

How do medical thrillers and mysteries fit into the Southern Gothic literary genre? If you caught my presentation at the Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration, then you know the truth.
I would also like to share that my fifth novel, “The 5 Manners of Death,” was nominated for the 2018 Fiction award by the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters.
