I was recently interviewed by publishing expert Kelsye Nelson. We talked about my background in medicine and transition into the literary world with the Widow Walk saga, a historical fiction series.

Widow-WalkDr. LaSalle, I’ve noticed that there are a growing number of physicians who have become accomplished authors. Why did you choose to write historical fiction when so many physician-writers seem to be more comfortable writing non-fiction.

I have always loved studying history, seeing how events in the past shaped our lives today, how patterns repeat themselves, how our collective consciousness evolves while human nature – the things that motivate us to do the things we do remain the same…the battles we fight, driven by appetites we do not yet really understand, and compel repetitive mistakes in our common hope for continual progress.
