I'm happy to be participating in "Authors for the Philippines" - a way to help raise money for the victims of the heartbreaking destruction on those beautiful islands. You can bid for a signed copy of Island Practice - and also donations from many other writers and editors. It's one small way to help. Thanks to Candy Gourlay for helping put all of this together.

Trying to think of thematically relevant tunes to play at our August 21 "Island Jazz" gig on Nantucket. Since Island Practice's Dr. Tim Lepore will be there - and since he is a surgeon and tick expert, among other things - I'm toying with "I've Got You Under My Skin." Maybe Dr. L could play a solo on one of his hand-carved obsidian scalpels. https://www.facebook.com/events/541038999283217/

A cool storytelling event this Friday evening in New York City: I've been invited to join some fascinating folks (authors, a playwright, a veterinarian and, um, a "former brothel owner") to tell an animal-related story. Thinking about one of the great Dr. Lepore animal anecdotes in Island Practice...

Nice to keep getting reviews of Island Practice a year after publication! And this one is great because it comes from Dr. Elaine Schattner, a physician and writer. http://www.medicallessons.net/2013/07/summer-reading-island-practice-about-a-rare-physician-on-nantucket/
