"Silent Fear is billed as a medical mystery and holds an important characteristic separating it from many competitors in the genre: its author is a physician herself, so the medical facts, setting and background are not only believable but are solidly grounded in reality. ... Even seasoned medical thriller readers won't know exactly where the plot is heading.
(Silent Fear is) medical mystery or thriller writing at its best -but its also about life-changing actions, responsibilities, family ties, romance, and survival. All these elements combine in a hard-hitting, realistic story sure to attract a wide audience."

Word Press Review
"(Silent Fear's) story is expertly told with very credible medical descriptions of (a) devastating epidemic. Characters believably come alive and intrigue deepens with difficulty in finding a cure."

About the Author
Since Ebel sprinkles 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. Collateral Circulation also won the 2015 Nation Indie Excellence Finanlist Award for medical thrillers.
In addition to her adult writing, she has illustrated and penned a children's book series called Chester the Chesapeake. The books developed during her philanthropic visits with her therapy dog, Chester. The dog books continue to inspire adults and children alike. Along with her husband and four pets, "Doctor Barbara" lives in a wildlife corridor in middle Tennessee.
