Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was about a rabbit that climbed a mountain to take up an issue with the man in the moon. I was in elementary school, and I must have just learned the phrase "nooks and crannies", because the rabbit navigated a lot of nooks and crannies on his trip.
When did you first start writing?
I have stories from elementary school and was first "published" in a young writer's conference collection in junior high school. But I put it aside for many years as an adult, and it wasn't until I was in my thirties that I started to let people read what I had written.
A novel about the hearts inside the business and politics of drug development.
Every day a choice must be made between saving one child and treating thousands.
