About the Author
Barry Mosher, one of the foremost illustrators working today, has illustrated many books for adults and children, including The Pennyroyal Caxton edition of the King James Bible and Lewis Carroll's Alice: Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.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. All of my novels have a thread of fact and when I asked my wife about formulating my first story line she suggested a "what if" scenario about a Vietnam Returnee patient of mine who brought back a bottle of human eyes. I lost contact with the patient and THE EYEMAN offers a possibility of what can happen to a person when the war never ends. I believe literature should be educational, fun, serious, full of feelings and always with a touch of imagination. I live in San Antonio, Texas with my wife and 2 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
