About the author

Carina Alyce

The Author is a full-time triple board-certified physician who started writing dramatic medical romances after 20 years in the trenches of health care. She's done it all from candy striper (needed a wheelchair driver's license) to nursing home aid (mastered wheelchair driving) to hospital barber for neurosurgery (they rated her skills as subpar.). She promises she never had sex in a call room - the mattresses are not comfortable - or had a fistfight with a patient - though she did work as a fight doc at the Octagon. Her stories are sexy, snarky, and real with all the romance and drama of the lives of our first responders.

She writes the MetroGeneral Downtown series that tackles the personal and professional challenges facing our front-line providers. Her stories have the drama of Grey's Anatomy, the comedy of Scrubs, the sexiness of Outlander, and the medical details of Forensic Files. They feature fast, witty dialogue, strong women with goals, and quirky ensemble casts because the hospital is full of smart weirdos who are willing to save your life.

When not working or writing, she is a brown belt in judo, avid reader, and attending surgeon in stuffed animal veterinary medicine for her six kids. (No one trusts her husband's medical skills because he's just a lawyer.) You can follow her at carinaalyce.com

A message from the author:

Warning - There's gonna be sex - doctors get horny. There's gonna be sadness because patients die - it can be heartbreaking. There's gonna be struggles because PTSD is real - and healthcare is a grind. There's gonna be black humor because the perfect time to quiz medical students on the details of Garth Brooks alternate lifestyle as Chris Gaines is midway through open-heart surgery - some surgeons REALLY like country music. And there's gonna be swearing too - the next time someone comes into my ER impaled with a hot dog skewer - I'm totally gonna use the 'F word.'
