Author Chelle Cordero and Vanilla Heart Publishing donated one-dollar per book sold during the launch week of Cordero’s latest novel, mystery thriller Final Sin, to the Stony Point Ambulance Corps Youth Squad. Chelle presented the check to members and advisors of the Youth Squad at the Stony Point Ambulance Corps building on Friday, June 19, 2009. The donation totaled $120.00 and will be used towards training supplies and activites.

Members of the Youth Squad, ages 14 to 18, receive training in emergency response and emergency medical skills. In addition to helping to maintain ambulance readiness and other community services several members (age 15 and up) are proficient in BLS-CPR and Advanced First Aid and respond as part of an ambulance crew when 911 is called.

Final Sin is Chelle Cordero’s fifth novel and is a murder mystery set in New York’s lower Hudson Valley; the main female character is a Paramedic. The book has been praised for its accurate depiction of emergency services.
