About Wiggle Room...While serving as an Air Force surgeon at the height of the Iraq War, Major Brad Cummins fails to save an injured soldier yet must mend the Iraqi national maimed in the same IED blast. Brad survives the medical tribunal’s inquest over the GI’s unexplained death but endures rigid criticism from his peers. Still blaming himself for losing the soldier after successful surgery, Brad is haunted by the Iraqi’s words: Maybe you should rethink what you really are. When he returns from deployment, Brad resumes surgical practice with his twin brother in Mississippi—until he discovers his twin shot to death in a suspected robbery. When he finds their name tags mistakenly switched, Brad cannot forget a haunting, anonymous message—I will give you a little wiggle room— and is certain that he was the intended target.   But when the police, and even his fiancĂ©e, discount his fears as paranoia, Brad is forced to uncover the truth—even if that means risking his life, and the lives of those closest to him. Expect the unexpected in this exhilarating and extraordinary page turner…. 

A captivating contemporary thriller set against the backdrop of the Iraqi war and the Deep South, Wiggle Room will leave readers gasping for breath until the final page is turned.

" 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.
