SouthBound: Author Kimmery Martin On Her Debut Novel And Life As An ER Doctor

Mar 7, 2018

Kimmery Martin's first novel, "The Queen of Hearts," has got love, death, humor, secrets, hot doctor sex, and a medical procedure performed with a fork. Does that sound like something you might be interested in reading?

Kimmery’s from Kentucky, and she spent years as an emergency-room doctor in Charlotte – in fact, she wrote this book while working in the ER and raising three kids with her husband. Talking to her for this episode of SouthBound, I felt like a slacker.
