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.

From the Other Side

The new year 2016 brought a special gift to me, the "opportunity" to be on the other side of the healthcare delivery system--the care receiver rather than the caregiver. Fortunately, I am blessed that my surgery went well. I only missed just over week of work, and a full recovery is expected. During those days away from my ob/gyn career, I spent time at home recuperating and was feed well by family and friends. The surgery had been scheduled long before the Ole Miss Rebels finished a stellar football season, and since my wonderful physician is not an Ole Miss fan he did not mind skipping our second trip to the Sugar Bowl in over 40 years. Fully alert, status-post anesthetic trance and requiring minimal post-op pain meds on the evening of January 1, I watched Ole Miss trounce Oklahoma State on a fairly large, widescreen TV from the comfort of my den couch. However, I missed being in New Orleans with my friends at the Superdome in what they described as great seats in an obvi

Flawed characters surround us

A recent publication discussed the growing role of powerful female characters in many popular televison series and that many times the male lead becomes their kryptonite. This theme also drives the plot of many murder mysteries and thrillers. Whether on television, in the movies, or in novels, those of us seeking escape are drawn to flawed characters. Male and female characters create many conlicts with the opposite sex and drive a novel's plot. Murder mysteries and mystery fiction novels abound with men who lose the sexual battle but somehow find redemption. Are audiences as forgiving when a female protagonist is derailed by a love interest? Contemporary television does not seem to think so, and that concept helps this writer create flawed female characters that practically write award winner books themselves .

Listener posts 5 Star Review of the audiobook HOUSE CALL on audible.com

Recently, I’ve gotten into listening to audiobooks on my drive to and from work, so I was thrilled to see that “House Call” had just come out—and I was not disappointed. Narrator Michael Robbins nailed it with his southern dialect and portrayal of the unique characters. Robbins could pass for a Mississippi native! His versatility as an actor came through with other character dialects as well. The narrator added to the professional performance by including an occasional sound effect and a few seconds of introductory and closing music. For me, it was like listening to a movie or play. Now, I feel like I truly know Darden North’s character
