The journey that lead me to writing comes from a deep passion for reading and writing.
I started writing this book in 2011 after getting laid off from my job with
DME (Durable Medical Equipment) company. After twenty something years in th
medical field as a licensed respiratory therapist.
What does a respiratory therapist do?
Respiratory Therapist are important to patients that have trouble breathing with
lung diseases such as Asthma, Emphysema, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). The main responsibilities are to keep patients breathing! Therapies include
nebulizer treatments, Bipap, Cpap and invasive therapy all aid in the treatment plan of the patient.
Now where was I? Oh that's right I was telling you about my journey to writing
my first book, Terror In The North Tower. One day I sat down and just started typing
on the computer. Words just seemed to flow onto the page. Then after about six months they stopped. All in all it took me a year to write this work of art. Writing wasn't that hard, it was finding a publisher I could afford.
Publisher's cost money!
Zondervan, Xulon Press are just a few that I checked into. Oh yes, we can help you publish your book but it's going to cost xxx dollars. Where was I going to get that kind of money? Finally after four years I had the opportunity to meet Monna Ellithorpe . She is a member and co founder of the Power Affiliate Club PAC and a published author herself.
What an amazing experience it has been working with her to make my words actually come to life.
What's the book about?
A murder mystery, love story with a twist the reader won't see coming. This story's main theme is about respiratory therapist in the hospital setting. Many books are written with the doctor or nurse being the villlian. Now I want to make something very clear. This fictional thriller is just that. Fiction!!!
I love my profession as well as my peers and the men and women that have a passion for seeing others well.
