When a doctor and a filmmaker reconnect…

Just who is healing whom?

Two years ago, Dr. Wyatt Reid shared an unforgettable goodbye kiss with Mia Fiore. Now a scuba diving accident brings the daredevil documentary filmmaker into his San Francisco ER. Could this be their shot at a real relationship? But Wyatt, haunted by family tragedy, saves lives, and Mia risks hers every day. Can they find the way to a future on both their terms?

Inspiration for The Doctor's Recovery

My mother is a retired RN. She worked full-time through her first three pregnancies. When I came along (the last of four and the only girl), she stopped working. My father traveled frequently for his job and raising four children required full time hours from my mom. When I was in seventh grade, my mom decided to go back to nursing. A few weeks into her return to work, she came home and told me that she was considering quitting. She’d been out of the medical field for a while and the learning curve had increased over those years.

My mom says that I told her that she wasn’t allowed to quit. That she wouldn’t let us quit something until we’d given it a year or a full season if it was a sports team. I also added if she gave up, she’d be teaching me that it was okay to give up too. I don’t remember this conversation, but I love the memory my mom gave me. And I believe I did tell her just that. My mom never quit all those years ago and just like my mom, I knew I couldn’t give up on my dream of writing because I didn’t want my daughters to ever give up on their dreams. I know I have her to thank for that childhood lesson that has stuck with me.

My mom continued to work in the neonatal intensive care unit as well as mother baby care even after I’d graduated from high school and moved out. She worked mostly the night shift. Yet, there isn’t a time I can look back on when my mom wasn’t there for me. Whenever I needed her, even if she’d worked over-time that night, she found a way to help me with whatever I needed. My mom showed me that you can work and raise a family and do both successfully with love and conviction.

I believe that the medical profession is a special calling and I’m in awe of those who answer that call so willingly and with such passion. I’m blessed to know nurses and doctors who are both family and dear friends.

I was thrilled to be able to write The Doctor’s Recovery that involved the intricate medical world with characters finding love and success in every part of their lives.

To all those who have accepted the call and stepped into the medical field, I want to thank you for all that you do for the sick, the wounded and their concerned families.

Happy Reading!
