Scarlet Wilson - Presidential Inspiration and a Giveaway!

Where do you get your ideas? 

A few years ago I was watching the inauguration of a lovely new President, his wife and two daughters.  And something clicked in my brain. 

For the first time, in a long time, we had the potential for a White House baby.  What if……?

People often ask me where I get my ideas from for my stories.  Most of the time I can’t remember.  But the thought of a White House baby fascinated me.   It’s been over 50 years since we had a White House baby, it seemed only fitting that I used the theme for a medical romance.

West Wing to Maternity Wing! Is the second book in the series.  This tells the story of Lincoln Adams – the neonatologist to the President’s premature baby -  and Amy Carson – the pregnant woman posing as his wife.

For Amy desperate times call for desperate measures.  She knows her long awaited baby is going to arrive early.  She wants the best doctor she knows to be the one to look after him.  She wants to give her baby the best chance of survival.  Unfortunately for Amy, Lincoln is being closely guarded by the Men in Black as he watches the president’s daughter.  Amy has to think of a way through the cordon – and she does!

Medical romances bring their own challenges.  Medical practices in countries can vary widely and as I live in Scotland, I had to be quite careful about researching neonatal practices in the US.  This involved sourcing a neonatal feeding protocol from a hospital in the US near to where my story is set. 

And as for trying to find out how the Presidential Medical details works………

I’ll leave that to your imagination!

So, where do you get your ideas from?  One commenter will win a copy of my latest medical romance West Wing to Maternity Wing!  I’ll leave the winners details in the comments in two days time.

The President's Baby Doctor

Famous neonatologist Lincoln Adams is looking after the President's newborn daughter when nurse Amy Carson arrives at the hospital, posing as his very pregnant wife!  Amy's had first-hand experience of Linc's skilful hands and he's the only person she trusts to look after her precious cargo, but trusting him with her fragile heart is another matter...

I don't write. I rely on gifted writers to take an idea & run with it.
I would love to read WEST WING TO MATERNITY WING thank you. A wonderful 'mashing' of interests.
