Making It Real – Bruce Davis

Whether it’s getting the medical details right, understanding how cavalry really works, or getting police and military procedures correct, the writer needs to know enough basics to give the reader accurate information without going overboard. How much detail and where the heck can you learn this stuff?
Bruce Davis finished medical school at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago way back in the 1970’s and did his surgical residency at Bethesda Naval Hospital. After 14 years on active duty that included overseas duty with the Seabees, time on large grey boats and a tour with the Marines during the First Gulf War, he went into private practice near Phoenix. He is part of that dying breed of dinosaurs, the solo general surgeon. He also is a writer of science fiction and fantasy novels. His independently published works include the YA novel Queen Mab Courtesy and his military science fiction novel That Which Is Human. His nonfiction memoir, Dancing in the Operating Room, is a glimpse into the life and training of a Trauma Surgeon.
