The author discussed the novel, and sales of author signed copies were brisk. Unfortunately, this blog still does not allow insertion of photos, but I will post a few on Facebook.

Excitement grows!

Had a conversation today with the book cover design folks at my publisher. We discussed some exciting ideas for WILDFIRE. I expect to see some preliminary concepts from them in about a week. I'd enjoy sharing those concepts on this blog, but the software will no longer allow insertion of photos with the text--so I guess I'll make cover design choices myself and readers will have to wait for publication in late November to see the result.

WILDFIRE is coming!

I am moving ahead with independent publication of WILDFIRE. It's an exciting medical thriller about Jeremy Becker, a New Orleans medical student who is infected by HIV as a result of a needle stick accident while working with a hemophiliac patient at Charity Hospital in the late 1980s. Fear of the spreading AIDS epidemic leads to political over-reaction which creates a new kind of segregation based upon mandatory HIV blood tests. The new law, called Health Protection Act of 1989, also appropriates millions to create regional research facilities, one of them located in New Orleans, to speed up efforts to eradicate the AIDS epidemic spreading like a wildfire across the nation.
Unfortunately, greed-driven men in positions of power sabotage the research for their own financial gain. Their scheme threatens the lives of Jeremy and his roommate until, finally they recruit the FBI to help them track down the subversive operatives who include senior leaders of the hospital and members of Congress.

The novel is expected to be ready for release in November. Stay tuned.
