That’s right. You can’t keep the Most Unfeeling Doctor in the World away, not even with hate mail and one-star reviews (been there, done that, don’t need any more T-shirts, thanks). If you’re tired of empathy and all that patient-centred milk of human kindness mumbo jumbo, roll with me, baby.
This collection is called unplugged for a few reasons. Not only is “unplugged” a fun ’90s musical reference, but dictionary.com also defines it as “to remove an obstruction from.”
And you, the readers of my first Unfeeling Doctor book, have helped me remove an obstruction, namely, any of my lingering doubts about indie publishing. Thank you so much for (temporarily) driving The Most Unfeeling Doctor in the World into the top 0.15 percent of Kindle sales. I now officially consider indie publishing a splendid shortcut for readers to access writers and vice versa. So that’s why I have unleashed a tidal wave of material on you, including these all-new, all-original essays about life in the medical lane.
As for the haters…I once met a guy in Montreal whose T-shirt said, “I Heart Haters.” I pointed at it and said, “Why would you do that?”
He smiled. “Because if I hated them, I would be just like them.”
Whoa. I don’t know if I can go there yet. But in the meantime, I can at least unplug. And you can come with me.

Eight years ago, someone ran over a young doctor who asked too many questions. Today, at the still-grieving mother’s request, resident doctor Hope Sze untangles the cold case before the killer silences Hope, too.
This time, the sociopath won’t back down. But neither will Hope–or the two men vying for her attention.
Hope deserves a rest after solving a murder last month. Unfortunately, the sociopath wants to make sure the now-notorious “detective doctor” rests in a shallow grave.
The sequel to Code Blues. Written by an emergency physician trained in the crumbling corridors of Montreal.
Available on the Kindle & Smashwords
Oona Mak’s done the smart thing all her life. As an English teacher, she helps high school kids figure out life and literature. She married a kinder, gentler engineer in a perfect wedding.
Except now her husband wants to schtup someone else and Oona could
a) Divorce him, teach summer school and cry in her friends’ iced tea. (Naaaaah. Except for the divorce.)
b) Try to work things out with her husband and turn her grief into something socially acceptable like buying Moroccan lamps and bleaching her teeth. (You’re joking, right?)
c) Run through her List. Bingo.
Don’t we all have a List? The first guy you really loved, the guy who got away, the guy you never paid attention to in high school until he morphed into a McDreamy-McSteamy combo and now you’d give him a second chance?
The List of all the guys you coulda-woulda-shoulda.
Now Oona can. She will. And she should.
Because a few good men are the best revenge.
