Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Riverside General Hospital, a place of harsh realities. On Ingram Ward, Staff Nurse John Hunter is a man on the edge. Unable to move on from the recent traumas in his life, pushed to the limit, and liking his job less and less, he makes a drugs error, and questions why he even wants to be a nurse. The incident puts him on a collision course with the hospital's new matron. John's best friend, Australian coronary care nurse, Dave Chiltern, discovers that helping a friend run his pub while he's unwell can be more rewarding that his current job. Roxanne Jones, John's girlfriend and a care assistant on Ingram Ward, is contacted by her former boyfriend, who tries to re-ignite old flames. Ingram Ward's Sister, Sarah Ashe struggles to focus on her job after leaving her violent husband. Facing the impossible expectations of front-line NHS care, the nurses who struggle to save lives and preserve their own sanity as they do so, all face choices of their own. Do the angels have an alternative?

I was born in Dorset, England, in 1968. My father was in the Army, and I was educated in Germany, then returned to the UK, working mainly in pubs before joining the RAF Regiment for three years. Afterwards, I trained as a nurse, qualifying in 1996. In writing An Angel's Alternative, I hope I have made the characters as true to life as possible, as well as creating an enjoyable story. Should any readers wish for more, I have three other completed novels awaiting editing, which I hope to publish soon. Follow me on facebook, or my website, I wish you an enjoyable read of my work.
