Compassionate First Responders

In my novella Finding Tony my heroine Star Madison is a paramedic. What adjectives come to mind?

I suspect you’re thinking: strong, resilient, fearless and capable. And yes, Star Madison is a confident and skilled first responder. She captures all of the above attributes. Star loves her job and finds her work stimulating and rewarding.

And yet, like many first responders, her career can overwhelm her life. She has seen too much. Lost too many. She struggles to stay positive. A case of  classic burn-out.

Rather than live in a depressed state, she decides to use the ‘geographic cure’. She moves far away and starts her life again. Many people don’t have that luxury.

I hope that you will read Finding Tony and discover how Star decides to reinvent herself.

It’s never too late to start again. If you could revisit part of your past, would you do it?

Would you choose the path not taken?
