  Here is a synopsis of AST, the sequel to A Surgeon’s Knot.


·  I have begun writing the sequel to these two novels. It is tentatively entitled A Surgeon’s Triumph.


o   The year is now 1987, and Jackson Cooper and Patrice Cooper are chief residents at the University Medical Center. Joyously, Patrice is pregnant with the couple’s first child. Unfortunately, in the second trimester, she develops a pregnancy related illness, requiring admission to the intensive care unit. The story revolves around that illness, the concerning effect on the baby, and the completion of Jackson’s chief residency year.
