Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a former ER nurse who found herself "on the other side of the stethoscope" after a riding accident that broke my neck and taught me the difference between being "strong" and knowing the true source of strength--faith in God. The story of my accident and recovery appears in Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul and started my writing career. I'm a wife, Mom and proud grandmother to six; love to putter in my kitchen, garden, bird watch, travel--and listen to my husband play his guitar. I'm also an avid fan of Beth Moore Bible studies.
What was your motivation behind this project? Disaster Status continues the Mercy Hospital series and depicts the dramatic conflict within a community that's thrown into panic after a disaster. More importantly it allows readers an inside glimpse into the hearts and minds of the heroes struggling to control chaos--environmentally and in their personal (and spiritual) lives as well. My specialized training in peer counseling for critical incident stress was a great foundation for the books in this series. I loved it that my heroine, nurse Erin Quinn, can be "strong" enough to pull on a pair of boxing gloves--but has much to learn about true strength.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? As with the first book in this series (Critical Care), I'd like my readers to feel welcomed into the medical world as part of the team (struggles, triumphs, heart-tugging moments, joy). And at story's end to feel heartened by its message of hope.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Writing this book was special for me on many levels, beginning with the setting: the Pacific Coast, with scenes in Santa Cruz California--including a breathtaking ride on the boardwalk roller coaster! My family had a beach house in that area and it was great to re-visit sights, sounds, smells, memories, and share them with readers. Another delight was being able to excerpt a poem ("A Strong Woman vs. a Woman of Strength") after connecting personally with the poets. The wonderful verses were inspirational to me at tough time in my life and to be able to offer it to my readers was a true blessing.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Thank you for "scrubbing in" with the Mercy Hospital series, and please come visit me via my website, blog, or on Facebook (Candace Calvert Books) or Twitter.
