Introduction

P.D. Workman writes riveting young adult/suspense fiction about mental illness, addiction, and abuse.

For as long as P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few years.  Then, forty-some novels later, P.D. Workman finally decided to start publishing. 

P.D. Workman is a devout wife and a mother of one, born and raised in Alberta, Canada. She is a homeschooler and an Executive Assistant. She has a passion for art and nature, creative cooking for special diets, and running. She loves to read, to listen to audio books, and to share books out loud with her family. She is a technology geek with a love for all kinds of gadgets and tools to make her writing and work easier and more fun. In person, she is far less well-spoken than on the written page and tends to be shy and reserved with all but those closest to her.

In general, I have not had good experiences with doctors and I put up with a running injury for a month before finally breaking down and making an appointment to see Dr. Dave. It was pretty painful, and Dave performed accupuncture to relieve the pain immediately (and it did not return). We discussed a congenital defect that might have contributed to this injury, and scheduled a follow-up to analyze my running gait. He also gave me some exercises to strengthen my hips and hopefully avoid reinjury in the meantime. In the time between the first and second appointments, Dr. Dave did research on my condition and the affect it might have on my running, sent me copies of the studies he found, and we discussed various points over e-mail. The video of my running gait at our second appointment did show some areas of concern due to my congenital hemihypertrophy, and Dr. Dave referred me to an orthotics doctor to help address these issues. The treatment that I got there helped immensely. I had one more follow up when I had another issue, and this time set up an appointment right away instead of putting up with it, knowing that Dave would help me. He did accupuncture again, and referred me to another physio who would help me with some pilates exercises to strengthen my core (another effect of my congenital issues). With no more re-injuries, I have been able to run my first two half-marathons, and happily continue my running without issues. You know that "brushed off" feeling you get when you go to a doctor, explain all of what has been going on, and get a hasty prescription and shunted out of the room for the next patient? You won't get that with Dr. Dave. He listens, asks questions, discusses all of the issues, and works together with you to develop a treatment plan that will work. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
