Thrillers with Heart

As a pediatric ER doctor turned award-winning,
New York Times bestselling author of twenty-two novels,
I've lived my life on the edge.

I’ve faced down gangbangers twice my size,
walked away from not one but two hard landings in the helicopter,
worked with detectives and prosecutors on cases involving homicide
and sexual assaults, have even met a serial killer…

Writing is my way of coping with the chaos.

Stories have power. As much power as medicine.
The power to teach, the power to heal, the power to inspire.

That is why I create my Thrillers with Heart.

Stories as real as it gets—exploring the gray areas
between good and evil, the struggles of
everyday people as they find the courage
to stand up and make a difference.
