“Highly entertaining and timely — a bio-terrorism mystery with interwoven themes that would not be out of place in The Office, House of Cards or, sadly enough, the current presidential campaign. I couldn’t put it down!”

“Thrilling story and lovable characters. A unique view into the little understood world of public health. It took ahold of me and wouldn’t let go until the last page.”
The idea for Think Zebras comes from my experience working in local and state health departments. Movies like Outbreak (1995) and Contagion (2011) portray high-level CDC physicians as protecting our communities from infectious diseases. In truth, public health nurses, like my heroine Mary Campbell, are on the frontlines of disease control every day in the United States. They are unsung heroes.
