About S.E. Sasaki
As a Canadian MD who worked as a rural family physician for over 20 years, and now spend my working hours in the operating room assisting in emergency and elective surgery, I have seen a lot.
The concept of the medical space station in Welcome to the Madhouse and The Grace Lord Series was borne from my experiences in the hospital and operating room. There has never been a dull moment in all my years working as a physician. I wanted to convey the suspense of never knowing what was going to come in the front door and how situations can become dire very fast. I also wanted to share the camaraderie between colleagues that exists in the OR with you. I hope I have achieved that.
When I'm not assisting in surgery or writing the next book, I love to paint and create collages. My collages have won awards at the World Fantasy Convention and Ad Astra. You can see my dragons at my website http://www.sesasaki.com.
I love to travel, scuba dive, downhill ski, kayak, play tennis, ride horses, and I've even ridden an ostrich, once. I have two Maine Coon cats and an Akbash puppy who keep me and my husband hopping, ever since our two children grew up (far too fast).

"Sasaki displays a propulsive inventiveness as she weaves grand ideas with humour and soul. Both a paean to the sci-fi genre and a captivating return to a space station in a complex universe." — Kirkus Reviews Magazine.
The Conglomerate rules the planetary systems of the Union of Solar Systems. Embroiled in conflicts all over the galaxy, it sends its wounded, genetically-modified, animal-adapted space marines to medical space stations like the Conglomerate’s Premier Medical Space Station, the Nelson Mandela.
Lieutenant Dr. Grace Lord, combat surgeon-in-training, has devoted her life to saving lives. She's landed her dream job—or so she thinks—working on the Nelson Mandela under the great Dr. Hiro Al-Fadi, galaxy-renowned animal-adaptation surgeon, who unfortunately turns out to be a megalomaniac slavedriver and pain in the ass, to boot. With Grace's first step onto the station, she's attacked by a gorilla space marine, turned psychotic from a biological weapon. Grace must administer the antidote into the patient without being killed. Welcome to her new job!
When a mysterious vessel docks at the station, only filled with empty uniforms and oily puddles, the Nelson Mandela is exposed to the most dangerous organism the galaxy has ever seen. Half of the station goes into quarantine. The other half must try to save them, before they all get blown to space dust.
The Planetary Exploration Bureau is back with a beautiful Inquisitor, twelve cryopods full of dead explorers, and a handsome former lover of Grace Lord. Mayhem ensues, when a powerful entity arises from one of the cryopods and takes possession of the Inquisitor. The alien begins tearing the Nelson Mandela apart, piece by piece, with Bud fighting the entity every step of the way . . . until he falls. To prevent the alien from getting off of the station, the crew of the Nelson Mandela prepare for self-destruction. Can Grace save the day?
