About the books
The Extreme Medical Service series
Monsters, Paramedics, and Street Medicine.
New paramedic Dean Flynn is fresh out of the academy. When he gets assigned to the unknown backwater ambulance Station U, he wonders what he did wrong. Then Dean learns that his patients aren’t your normal 911 callers.
Dean and his partner serve the creatures of myth and legend living alongside their normal human neighbors in Elk City. With patients that are vampires, werewolves, fairies and more, will Dean survive his first days on the new job? Will his patients?
Not all is well on the streets of Elk City either, and some humans are striking out at their mythical neighbors. Dean soon finds himself in the middle of a series of attacks on his patients, attacks that implicate a former member of Station U. Come along on this ride with Extreme Medical Services series, a paranormal medical thrill-ride with the paramedics of Elk City.
Racing Game for the Past, Present and Future
Jamie has two non-fiction titles currently. One is related to his love of miniatures gaming. You can find it at FutureRaceGames.com. It is a fun set of tabletop gaming rules that allow you to race anything against each other. The Future Race game system was modeled after both the ancient chariot races seen in movies like Ben Hur and the pod races seen in Star Wars: Episode One. Buy Future Race for a fun family game enjoyed by all!
