The weather matched the mood of the event, as the sultry humidity took on a Costa Rican theme to match one of the three locations visited in the book, the emcee for the night was Slam FM’s Lady NV. Lucky patrons were also treated to a complimentary happy hour complete with Sparman Sangrias and Rum ‘SWITCHED‘ cocktails and Costa Rican nibbles. (Courtesy of Stansfeld Scott & Relish Epicurea).

1.58 Seconds” fictionally expresses the integral relationship between living and dying. Travel with Alfred as he confronts his own demons before time runs out and a man’s life is lost. Time is against him, every second passing brings patient Jimmy closer to the other side. With the four minute schedule given to him, would he rupture an artery with his scalpel under such pressure? Could he actually deliver that final blow? Or take a man’s life??? Only time would tell…

Will the good doctor write more? {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

1.58 Seconds‘ and ‘SWITCHED‘ are part of a trilogy and he’s considering yet another set of writings. The cardiologist already plans on penning short stories as well and immersing himself fully in writing, but he also likes to play as hard as he works.

There is no twin in his real life, but he says people who hate your success are as dangerous as a doppelganger and secretly want your life, so be very careful out there!
