You went to medical school and trained as an emergency medicine physician. Do you still work in an emergency department?
Yes. It's a very satisfying aspect of my life, and a chance to relieve suffering and to make a positive difference in the quality of people's lives. Plus, there's no telling what I'm going to encounter in the emergency department. It's a bizarre landscape, and can sometimes provide good material for the next book!
Will you come to my book club?
I love participating in book clubs, although I can't attend them all. Send me an email with the time and date of your book club. If I'm in the area and able to attend, I will.
