New review of WIGGLE ROOM on Martha Cheves' "A Book and a Dish"


Sometimes writers have to take a break. For many authors that means a jog around the block, an afternoon of yard work, or a round of golf ... for a lucky few, maybe a trip to Europe. Of course, a cruise might be a nice time to reflect and finish the next bestseller. However, for me a cruise is out -- since I get seasick much like my protagonist Brad Cummins in my latest thriller "Wiggle Room." (Actually Brad suffers from air sickness, a potential problem when you're an Air Force trauma surgeon.)

When taking a break from writing, I don't jog, but I work to polish off a couple of miles on the treadmill upstairs or on a neighborhood walk. Believe or not, I enjoy yardwork as another sideline. There is great catharsis in yanking up weeds.

Now author and chef Martha Cheves has challenged my versatility in a different manner, psuhing me to relax while still being constructive and creative. She's trying to turn me into a cook!

Martha asked me to take my laptop into the kitchen and submit a favorite recipe for her to publish along with her new review of "Wiggle Room."

Bon appetit!

" 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.
