To my fellow EMS providers,
I am pleased to announce the publication of Diamond in the Rough
An Action-Packed EMS Thriller and Black Comedy
A grief stricken mother seeks a publisher for her dead son’s manuscript — the shocking tale of his wayward journey through the world of EMS.
Tim Anderson is a troubled youth who becomes an EMT at Capitol Ambulance in the hopes it will help land him a girlfriend. He struggles to fit in with his new partners and not appear soft toward his sick and elderly patients. His downfall begins when he steals marijuana from a despondent college student in an attempt to curry favor with his new girlfriend. Soon, he is lifting wallets from drunken businessmen and picking money rolls out of the pockets of gunshot drug dealers to buy her gifts and fund lavish dates. Dealing daily with death and human decline, and tormented by guilt, he struggles to allow his emerging conscience to guide him on a path toward redemption that while not saving him from his fateful end, at least bestows him with grace.
An action-packed dark comedy, Diamond in the Rough is a lights and sirens tour through the world of emergency medical services that will shock and enlighten as it reveals the yearning heart of a most unlikely hero.
