From the Author:

The methods of murdering children in this novel were based on the actual methods used by an LPN in a San Antonio hospital back in the 1980's. She was in a Texas prison on death row when I worked at a near-by prison unit. I couldn't imagine why any one, much less a nurse, would want to kill children. As I thought about her case I developed this story, which is totally fiction.  But the chilling aspects of the deeds are based on facts.

QUESTIONS TO PONDER ABOUT MURDER BY PROXY:
This book has been placed on the recommended reading list for nursing students at the Univ. of Arkansas.

1. The "villain" in this story is based on a composite of two women in the Texas prison where I worked...Did you find it hard to believe a nurse could murder her innocent patients?

2. Have you ever met a person with a multiple personality disorder?

3. Was Joyce right to keep trying to get Martha's nursing license revoked even after she was threatened?

About the Author:

The whole time I was growing up, I wanted to be a nurse. Born in Presque Isle, Maine, I grew up as a “military brat”, living all over the United States and in Europe. I didn’t finish nursing school until after my three children were born. Since then I have worked as a Registered Nurse in several hospitals, taught in a Vocational Nursing School, and I spent a short time as a prison nurse at the Women’s Correctional Facility in Gatesville, Texas. I have worked in OB, Pediatrics, NICU, Dialysis and Geriatrics. I now live in Bentonville, Arkansas
