About the Author
A physician, speaker, and former chemist, Barbara Ebel's writing draws heavily from her experience as an anesthesiologist, her dealings with family court, and her interactions with people and places from around the world.
Since Ebel writes credible medicine into the background of her novels and her O.R. scenes shine, it's no wonder the first in her Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, Operation Neurosurgeon, was the top finalist for best selling medical mystery books in 2012. (Best Selling Books' blog announced on PR Buzz Press Release Wire, Chicago, IL). The ranking derives its roster of bestsellers from sources such as Amazon and Goodreads and uses readers' ratings, reviews and title sales for a blended score that creates each book's final rank.
In addition to her adult writing, she has illustrated and penned a children's book series called Chester the Chesapeake. The books developed after her philanthropic visits with her therapy dog, Chester. The dog continues to inspire adults and children alike. After publishing each Chester book, the question then is always, "when's the next one?"
Along with her husband and four pets, "Doctor Barbara" lives in a wildlife corridor in middle Tennessee. Her book, Silent Fear, the second of the Dr. Danny Tilson novels, was published in March of 2014.
