About the author

Carl Matlock

I have practiced medicine since 1971 after graduating from Indiana University School of Medicine. Following residency training years, I became board certified in Family Medicine and later in Emergency Medicine. My practice has been in Indiana, both in small towns as a Family Doctor, and in large inner city Emergency Departments. I am currently practicing Family Medicine in Geriatrics as I finish my career in medicine in the next couple of years. 

My writing interest is first in historical Christian action / adventure stories, and second in writing about my experiences in medicine.

Rebels, Romans, and the Rabbi was my first historical Christian novel, published initially in 2012. I will complete and anticipate publication of the second book in the series later this year.

I have also published my first book about my medical experiences, The Annals of a Country Doctor, in late 2017.

I have a new blog about my books and my family at
