I'm breaking my rule, sort of ...

Although I have been happy to sign a book for one of my much appreciated ob/gyn patients, my policy has been to keep my medical practice and writing novels separate. While my novels are mysteries and medical thrillers, I do not render professional medical treatment or address personal medical concerns through my author's website or my Facebook listing. (I use Facebook as a combined fan and personal venue.) However, Melanie Calvert Benton recently asked me to contribute an article about nutrition to her blog Fat Kat. Since I was able to work in a little book promotion into the piece (cleverly, I hope), I decided to share it here as an example of taking the opportunity to slide in a bit of free book marketing.

Here is the link to the article:

" 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.
