It's no wonder that so many physicians have taken on a second career as novelists -- the drama they witness and the variety of people they come into contact with on a regular basis make for too many good stories to pass up. (Somerset Maugham was a doctor before he became a playwright, novelist and short story writer; he was a spy as well but that's another story.)  A subset of physician/writers -- medical suspense novelists -- gathered last week at ThrillerFest, an annual gathering held at the Grand Hyatt in New York.
As someone who's written several medical suspense novels myself, I thought I'd cover it.  Is the Medical Thriller in Need of Life Support?
