Barbara Ebel is an award-winning and USA Today Bestselling Author who sprinkles credible medicine into the background of her medical suspense novels. Since she is a physician and specialized in Anesthesiology, her operating room scenes shine. However, her vivid characters and plots take center stage.

She has penned two medical suspense series, a separate medical novel, and five children’s books about her therapy dog. In October 2019, she also launched a new medical thriller series titled "The Outlander Physician Series."

As a matter of fact, after I published "Downright Dead," within a few months an author used the same title for their book.

My main protagonist is the "outlander" physician. Her background is diverse. She comes from an unusual island nation, then immigrates to the U.S. where she lives on L.I., NY, but then travels and works in different states as a Locum tenens physician (random, part-time assignments). I thought "outlander" would help describe her life-style!

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Who says a rising neurosurgeon can’t fall from his pinnacle? From the skullduggery taking place deep in the Tennessee woods to the silent tension in the OR, Doctor Danny Tilson’s life takes an abrupt turn after performing surgery alongside a scrub nurse with aqua eyes and a velvet voice. Can Danny’s situation get any worse after the alluring lady disappears, he inherits her roguish retriever, and his Albert Einstein historical book turns up missing? A pack of Tennessee attorneys pursue Danny while he develops a scheme with his paramedic best friend to payback the mysterious woman who left in a hurry.

Barbara Ebel Here is what the Midwest Review says about Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know ... who's in the OR:

“In Operation Neurosurgeon,” novelist Barbara Ebel brings a very special expertise to her writing because of her ‘day job’ is being a board certified anesthesiologist. The result is a meticulous and knowledgeable accuracy in background details making for an especially riveting read from first page to last. Neurosurgeon Danny Tilson’s medical expertise wasn’t enough to keep his beloved daughter from dying from complications associated with her asthma. This family tragedy is compounded when he becomes the target of a seductress The affair shatters his life further as he leaves his job and family and becomes a vagrant to avoid the lawyers and their lawsuits. The only thing remaining is to deal with the evil woman who preyed upon him in his grief and led to ruin. “Operation Neurosurgeon” is a highly recommended addition to personal reading lists and community library contemporary fiction collections.
Micah Andrew
Reviewer

Here are some reviews on Doctor Barbara's children's books:

“Chester, the fun-loving Chesapeake, never ceases to amaze me with his ability to teach the young at heart, as well as the old, about acceptance, guidance, and love. Great books for all ages!”
Danielle Collins, Ed.D, Federal Programs Supervisor, DeKalb County School System, TN.

“Chester has so much energy and enthusiasm for life he is able to grab the attention of even the youngest reader and keep it until the end of the story. Along the way, Chester teaches many lessons to children and adults alike!”
Jill Wheeler, First Grade Teacher, Findlay Elementary School, Sparta, TN
