You might be thinking to yourself– just where has Jordyn been? It’s been close to three weeks since she’s posted anything! Well, I’ve been planning some amazing giveaways for you.
My latest novel, Taken Hostage, released earlier this month. The novel was inspired by two pioneering medical works. The first is the work that Duke Medical Center is doing using modified polio virus to treat very aggressive brain tumors. When I first saw this news story a few years back, I felt like this was unlike any other medical advancement I’d seen in my lifetime.
The second inspiration was based on the work of Italian physician Dr. Paolo Macchiarini who specializes in building tracheas (or windpipes) for patients. His work, and large inspiration for this book, was featured in a documentary by Meredith Vieira call A Leap of Faith. Since the airing of the special, Dr. Paolo’s work has come under scientific scrutiny. At the time of this special, he was literally the only hope for some people.
I thought to myself . . . what if the one doctor who can save your life goes missing? What would you do to save your family member? This is the question for bounty hunter, Colby Waterson, in Taken Hostage when maverick doctor, Regan Lockhart, pops up missing the day of his sister’s lifesaving surgery.
