As a baby boomer and retired physician I'm devoting my time to writing medical thrillers. My fiction career began in 2003 preparing speeches in Toastmasters International. I started with THE EYEMAN and THE DUTY CREW reflecting my days of Vietnam service in Navy hospitals. As a lover of medical history COTTER was written to portray post-Civil War medicine's rapid advances. I believe literature should be educational, fun, serious, full of feelings and always with a touch of fantasy as THE HELIOS RAIN shows. I live in San Antonio, Texas with my wife and 3 cats spending 5-hours a day on new writing, working with editors and trying to promote my e-books. Encouraging my 8 grandchildren to read and write is as much fun as my own writing efforts. Peter Glassman MD, PhD
