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
