On the heels of our interview with author Jack El-Hai, who teaches physicians creative writing as an outlet, we have pediatrician, speaker and sci-fi writer Dr. Teresa Fuller. Dr. Fuller received both her M.D. and Ph.D. at Howard University and has been a practicing pediatrician in the Maryland area for more than 20 years. In addition to full-time pediatric practice, Dr. Fuller has been a contributing health writer for The Baltimore Times and Demand Media. She is the author of Change 1 Thing: A Doctor's Guide to Permanent Weight Loss, Disease Prevention and a Lifetime of Incredible Health. She also writes medical thrillers that teeter on the edge of science and science-fiction. She wrote her first novel, Time of Death: The Next Pandemic, way before this pandemic, so you’ll hear the story of how she came up with the idea and shopped it around, had it rejected, and finally published. She recently released her second novel entitled The Marked: Extinction which is a young adult sci-fi thriller. We discussed her foray into writing, how she comes up with stories, develops characters, and manages to keep it a hobby, not another to do on your list.
