Starting off with my update, this week I shifted gears temporarily to work on a charity anthology and I’m writing a short story in my Extreme Medical Services Series for it. It came up on short notice when a good friend of mine reached out for some authors she knew to write stories that would fit in an anthology called “Hell Cats.” I jumped at the chance and used it as a way to introduce a new character from my upcoming release, The Paramedic’s Amazon.

If you haven’t read the rest of the Extreme Medical Services series, you can find it wherever you get your books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
