It's set to be released in January 2019 and will be the third book in the Doctors of Darkness series of psychological thrillers, each of which features a--shall we say, troubled--doctor. (less)

I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying the series. I agree--Sebastian was one of my favorite characters to write from a psychological perspective. There was a lot going on with him, and he was loosely inspired by a client I had in group therapy many years ago. I don't have any plans to give him his own story right now, but you never know...Some characters just have a way of demanding to be heard from again! (less)

“My mother once told me that holding on to the past is like walking around with a pebble in your shoe. You can still keep walking, keep moving forward, but that pebble is always there nagging at you, begging for your attention. After a while, that pebble is all you can feel. Sometimes, you just have to stop walking for a minute and get rid of it once and for all.”
Ellery Kane

“Is he always like this?”
“If by this, you mean moody, but strikingly handsome, then yes. Unfortunately, he is.”

“My point is that she's not smart. She's not nice. And most importantly, she's not you. If Quin can't see that, he doesn't deserve you.”
