Sleight Of Hand

A Dr. Kyle Chandler Thriller - Book 3
My Story

Across a 30-year career in medicine, I accumulated plenty of wild stories and met more than my share of interesting characters. I always thought they might one day make for a good book. Then in 1995, when large insurance companies started muscling their way into the healthcare industry, providing a natural antagonist, I decided to put pen to paper. Or in this case, fingers to a little bitty vintage Dell laptop.

After a year of early-morning writing sessions, and two unsuccessful years of mailing manuscripts to dozens of publishing houses, the book sat on the digital back-burner for almost two decades. Inspiration struck again in the summer of 2019, and I set about revising and re-promoting the work. Through determination, persistence, and the help of my partners at White Bird Publications, I was proud to publish my debut novel Cut to the Chase in 2020.


 But that was only the beginning for protagonist Dr. Kyle Chandler, whose ongoing adventures now fill a series of medical thrillers following the thrill-seeking surgeon. Hidden Agendas debuted in 2022, and a third adventure, Sleight of Hand, is set to be released on February 29th!
