First-Time Novelist Richard L. Mabry

I love hearing about the experiences of first-time novelists like me. I stumbled upon Richard L. Mabry, MD, on Twitter. Richard’s debut novel of medical suspense, Code Blue, was released last week by Abingdon Press. Richard has an interesting backstory: He retired from medicine after 25 years as a private practitioner and 10 years as a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. It was after the death of his first wife in 1999 that he turned to writing and began to pen a journey of his grief, which evolved into the book, The Tender Scar: Life After the Death of a Spouse, in 2006. Soon his passion became fiction. There is a wonderful, wonderful, interview with Richard on Writer Unboxed — one of the best interviews I’ve ever read about the process of novel writing. Perhaps the only thing better than seeing one of us make it is finding out how.

  1. Dina,
    Thanks for those kind words. I was flattered to be featured on Writer Unboxed. Therese Walsh, who did the interview, really got into it, so much so that she published it in two parts. I hope your readers enjoy it, and enjoy reading Code Blue.
