Ahhhh, coffee time.
As I write this I am sitting in the lap of luxury at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, sipping my triple venti non-fat latte and indulging in a little people watching.
Next week at this time I will be in a remote Honduran village, sleeping under a mosquito net and providing medical care and comfort to the poorest of the poor. Like most women, I wear many hats and live in many worlds.
Books take me to places I’ve never been and will likely never go. Poster Girl will take you into the mind of CJ Jones, a strongly independent emergency room doc.
Entering the published writing world is kind of scary. As I developed CJ’s character I found parts of me leaching into her. I also engaged in some pretty amazing fantasy. My mind wandered down paths that perhaps I wouldn’t have followed. I’m excited about sharing CJ with you. I was terrified that my colleagues, or worse yet, a patient would read Poster Girl and realize that beneath my calm, ‘professional’ demeanor lurks a closet romantic who is willing to vividly describe the throes of ecstasy and believes in happy endings.
Being the chicken that I am, I chose to write under a pen name.
Let me invite you into Poster Girl’s world:
Being a doctor was her dream. Making a difference in the world was her goal.
To get there she sacrificed her social life, avoiding relationships that might
interfere with her neatly mapped out plans.
CJ Jones finally has it all. The M.D. behind her name.
The “Chief- Emergency Medicine” embroidered on her white coat.
The house she’s always wanted, with her “A Woman Without a Man is Like a Fish Without a Bicycle” poster on the living room wall. Life is good…until she becomes the unwilling patient of the hottest surgeon in town who’d like to take care of her in every way.
She doesn’t need a man. But she might want one…
I hope you’ll choose to meet CJ and spend some time in her world. I’d love to
hear your honest feedback about the book. Feel free to visit my website:

if you think I should keep on writing, or stick to trying to make a difference
in the world
