"Novelist Val Conrad’s stripped down style works well in this otherwise complex medical thriller series."
“Being squeamish is not a good characteristic for anyone outside of emergency services. It's not helpful for thriller writers, either,” says Val Conrad. She loves being able to blend the reality of the places she has lived with actual history, adding the complexities of medicine, and setting a story against a background and bone-chilling crime and the challenge of solving it.
From paramedic to nurse to teacher, Val most recently took time away from writing to finish her third degree and become a family nurse practitioner. She lives in the Texas Panhandle with her husband Bill, serving her hometown and making time to write. Keep a lookout for book five in the Julie Madigan Thriller series, Dreams of Like Souls, due out late 2020.
