How did you know you wanted to be an author? When we retired from medical practice, it was either learn to play golf or find some way to continue our mission to save lives. With disasters in the news every day, it made perfect sense to write about how to keep your family safe in times of trouble. We feel that the average person can be a medical asset to their family when the ambulance isn’t just around the corner, and can save lives in good times or bad.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Write what you’re passionate about. If you not committed to your subject, it will become apparent to all at one point or another.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?We always write in the same room, which helps us bounce things off each other and adds information from the standpoint of both a nurse and a physician.
What message to you want readers to remember?The message is simple: The average non-medically trained person may one day be responsible for the health of their loved ones during or after a disaster. If a catastrophe takes away modern medicine for a short or long period, someone will have to become the family medic. Our book’s mission is to make that person effective in such a role, and to do it in plain English.
