Still striving to create a title for this story and this is the latest. There will be a giveaway here of an autographed copy of Obsessions to a US or Canada person who makes a comment and leaves me a way to reach them.

Now for the story of Obsessions. Many years ago I read Michael Palmer's Sisterhood and really liked the book I thought perhaps I could write a medical suspense so I read many others in the subgenre and found that I couldn't write ones like those. Somehow I couldn't devise an evil mad scientist as the doctor of the piece so I put the idea aside. Then a series of events gave me the way to work this out, in my own way. I was still working as a nurse and trying to get in an hour or so a day writing. There was a Code and the patient didn't live. The family was hysterical. Then one of my colleagues who had a long standing relationship with one of the doctors found the affair had ended. A young nurse had just begun a flirtation with a doctor and during narcotics count one a pill seemed to be missing and we had a grand search to find where it had gone. Thus the seeds for Obsessions was found.
This is a story where the doctors and nurses are the ones who are being killed in what seem like accidents at first. Except, one of the nurses receives gifts after each death. Also those who die have obsessions with different things. The heroine is obsessed with not getting involved with a man who will want to control her life like her dead husband. Two of the victims are obsessed with a particular person. One is obsessed with drugs. The list of victims and the possible killers grow shorter. The heroine must face her own death on a winter night near Christmas and a chase through the streets of her tow,
The ending, and I won't tell you what it is freaked out many of my critique partners but I knew the heroine and stuck with the ending. So there you have the genesis of the story. The villain in the story remains as one of my favorites.
