#TBT My love affair with EMS

I write about Emergency Medical Services

I wrote two EMS-based Novels, Final Sin and Hyphema
using many of my own experiences in Emergency Medical Services

I've also been a columnist with

They are on the front lines on our home front;
when we are in crisis we call and they come
and in times of disaster 1st responders are often
crucial to the recovery of a community.
Thank you all.

Thanks for taking this little trip down memory lane with me!
