Paul E. Hardy lives in Central Alberta with his wife and two children. For the past sixteen years he has worked as a general surgeon. Writing, a more recent passion, has led to his first novel, Surgical Heights. The book is now available in both print and e-book formats.
This novel follows Dr. Jim Smythe through the most tumultuous six months of his career thus far. At the top of his game, he has doubts about his own health. He finds himself under escalating pressure from the Medical Licensing Authority and his own hospital administration over a series of complaints. The situation reaches a breaking point in the emergency room where everything is on the line.
