Brief summary of FRESH FROZEN
Tinker Murtagh thinks his new job is simple, but he’s never robbed a medical clinic before—and he’s never dealt with someone like Dr. Henry Van Deman. In “Fresh Frozen” by Darden North, human reproductive tissue becomes a fatal commodity as a childless young policeman and his deranged wife meet Lucille Wax and her sales catalogue of human embryo and egg donors. Suddenly their Mississippi community faces grisly murder, the world of Hollywood celebrity, and a physician with a black-market agenda. The lives of Carrie and Wesley Sarbeck, international superstar Allyn Saxton, and southern socialite Cheryl Choice unwittingly collide at the Van Deman Center, a state-of-the-art clinic for the treatment of infertility, housed in a once decaying building complex in Canton, Mississippi. The facility is equipped not only with modern medical technology but also a network of secret security cameras hidden in unconventional places controlled by cyber thief, Tinker Murtagh. While Dr. Knox Chamblee, Van Deman’s younger medical partner, treats his patients, he unknowingly promotes the deception, which preserves the dark secrets of the Van Deman Center of Reproductive Technology. The fast-paced suspense and rich dialogue in “Fresh Frozen” reveal how medical ethics can easily be discarded for the right price. Practicing ob/gyn physician Darden North is a national IPPY-awarded author in Southern Fiction. “Fresh Frozen” is North’s third novel and is narrated by Flora Plumb, a professional actress and voice artist. Plumb has narrated over twenty audio books.

" 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.

New novel by Darden North - Release set for June 15, 2017

In "The Five Manners of Death" there are five ways to die. Surgeon Diana Bratton believes that homicide is the only one left. Then the police prove her wrong. Diana learns that murder is her family secret. After a construction worker unearths a human skull on the campus of the University of Mississippi that dates to the 1960s, an older woman’s desperate attempt to erase history counts down the five manners of death. Surgeon Diana Bratton is surrounded by bodies after the discovery of her Aunt Phoebe’s 50-year-old note detailing the five ways to die. Suicide, accident, natural cause, and one death classified undetermined are soon crossed of this list—leaving Diana to believe that only homicide remains. Then the police prove her wrong. 
When Phoebe is linked not only to that death, but to the recent deaths of two local men, Diana is torn between pursuing Phoebe’s innocence and accepting police theory that her aunt is involved in multiple murders. Diana steals precious time from…
