PBW/Lynn Viehl used to do a Left Behind and Loving It workshop every week during nationals.  I only participated once.  I can’t always think of good ideas.  But I had a book come across my way not too long ago that inspired an idea.

I need to do a workshop on nurses and romance books. Doctors and romance books. Any kinda medical professional and romance books. Because the medical professional does tend to show up as a hero or heroine.

And man, some folks get it so fricking wrong. Which leads to people like me (a nurse) rolling my eyes or throwing the book.

This isn’t going to be anything super in-depth, but I’m doing a couple of mini-posts next week, while some of my friends are away partying/having fun/getting their toes pinched in cute shoes at RWA’s national conference.


I’m going to talk about why I can’t stand to read a book where the main character has anything to do with the medical profession.

If you write/or want to write romance/any book and plan to have/ever have a nurse/doctor/anything medical related, feel free to drop by and see some of the stuff that inspires my rants.
