Kamy Chetty | Medical heroes who give us arrhythmia
July 5, 2013
Even before ER and George Clooney, I knew the type of hero I liked and would
eventually write. A strong compassionate man who could command a room full of
people with a look or a breath, a man who held the power of life in his hands.
In short, a man who can give me goose bumps.
So what is it about these larger than life men that make woman weak kneed? For
me, the answer is simple. He doesn’t have to be drop dead sexy, although that
helps. But he does have to care about what he does and he certainly needs to be
a power to be reckoned with when it comes to the medical setting. For me, he has
to be real, and tortured by his own demons. I want to know that he has lived and
lost and I can identify with him. I also want to know that there is a part of me
that can save him.
Think of your favourite TV show and the medical hero you love, what is the
attraction and if there is one thing you could change, what would it be?

There hasn't been a time in her life that Kamy hasn't been writing, or dreaming
up some magical love story in her head. As an avid reader, it wasn't long before
she realised her talent for turning a phrase, and add to that a profession of
nursing, it's only natural that her stories have a medical theme with that
happily ever after ending.
Recently she's discovered that all those years she's been fascinated with TV
shows like CSI and Bones, has just been foreplay for her dark side and she now
enjoys writing suspense with a dash of medical and a dollop of romance.
Originally from South Africa, Kamy now lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her
very own hero and two children who keep her busy. She has two dogs who keep her
out of trouble and shelves overflowing with books that she loves reading when
she isn't chasing deadlines.

After a tour at war and countless shifts in the hospital emergency room, Nick
knows that no matter how hard he tries to change things, people are the same. So
when his estranged wife Skylar reveals that she stopped taking birth control and
is pregnant, he shouldn't be shocked. Betrayal burns and panic sets in as
memories of his shattered home life remind him that he can't play happy families.
Skylar knows one thing—she's head over nurse's shoes in love with the
stubborn and unemotional Nick. She loves him enough to believe in the man he is,
even though he can't see it for himself and hides behind a mask. As he calls
their child "hers" and tries to live apart from her, Skylar's heart breaks, but
she refuses to give up hope that he'll do the right thing.
When disaster strikes, Skylar realizes Nick might never change, so she risks
everything and sets him free, hoping he'll come back, for her and their baby. Is
heat, passion and a vow enough to seal this marriage and make them a family?
Reader Alert! Their passion and devotion will make you root for them,
and their sexual tension will set you ablaze.

A woman with no family ties of her own, desperate to
fulfill her dream of having a child finds she cannot conceive a child naturally.
A man who feels guilt over his ex-wife's death, cannot find closure. Can the
attraction these two people feel be enough to overcome their conflicting
desires, especially when Jack finds himself the guardian of a baby he isn't sure
he can be responsible for.

The first person that comes to mind is Alex Karev of Grey's Anatomy. I wish he was less of a man-whore. He's such a cutie and I want him to have that happily ever after.
Breathe sounds like an emotional read, looking forward to finding out how things turn out.
Good luck and happy writing!

Where I live, the TV reception isn't good, so as far as being able to watch any shows, or even knowing what's out there, I couldn't tell you. Growing up, there were a few medical shows on TV that I used to watch. The only thing I can say about the Doctors back then is, they were kind, compassionate, and went out of their way to help their patients. They were like a friend to their patients to make them comfortable so that they could be treated properly. I had a Doctor that I went to for over 30 years who was from that "old school" way of thinking, and after he retired, I missed him terribly. He was a real gem who did right by his patients. I heard stories of how he would yell at the nurses in the hospitals if his patients weren't being taken care of properly!! He was the sweetest person you ever met, with a great bedside manner. That would be the type of person you could write books about!! I can't wait to read your book, and find out how the story ends!!

I don't normally read medical romances but the backdrop of a war would make for a very interesting situation.
I read all the Cadfael books about a returned Crusader who joined a monastery and put his knowledge of healing and herbs to good use, solving murders along the way.

You are a new author for me... adding your name to my list... thanks for sharing... liking what I have seen so far.

Dr House--I would have liked him tortured, but without the drug habit, that just seemed a little too messy.
(Sue Farrell 3:19pm July 5, 2013)
My medical heroes go back to Dr. Kildare and Ben Casey. They were both so dedicated and always knew just what to do. I wouldn't change a thing!

Don't really watch anyt medical TV shows but would be interested in reading this book. Thanks!!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 4:01pm July 5, 2013)
I remember Ben Casey and Marcus Welby, I really enjoyed watching them.
(Mary Smith 4:44pm July 5, 2013)
Dr. Mark Sloan (Diagnosis Murder) is my TV medical doctor favorite. How many doctor can say that he has a son who is a cop and that they are a team in solving murders?
(Kai Wong 5:11pm July 5, 2013)
As a medical professional, I like TV scenes that are close to
real life, you know, the plausible ones. I can sniff out when
the actors are just saying words and don't know what they

My favorite TV show is: Days of Our Lives and I have been
faithfully watching this show since I was a young child with
my Mom in KS. I love to watch Dr. Daniel Jonas and he is so
cute and I would love to play his wife or girlfriend for
sure. The only hard part is that Doctors are like police and
always on call and work long hours so being married to them
would be a tough call for sure. I would love to win and read
your new book: BREATHE AGAIN. Thank You, Cecilia CECE
(Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 6:42pm July 5, 2013)
Both books sound interesting. Would like to read.

The first show that I remember breaking the saintly doctor mold was St. Elsewhere. While I'm not sure I would want to trust them with my medical care, they were definitely more realistically rounded than any show up to that time. I'm not sure how realistic Gray's Anatomy is, but once again, it is riveting. Medicine and romance are a reliable source of drama!!

Alex-yes I can see the attraction. He is one of those bad boys with a
history. House, definitely a contender. A man who cannot forgive his ex
wife for making the decision to cripple him, I like the conflict. Dr Mark Sloan
from Greys Anatomy- a man who has slept with his best friends wife, lots of
drama. Not sure I know Dr Kildare and Dr Casey, but would love to know
more and I loved St Elsewhere. Now that show I watched all the time. Days
of our Lives, another fave. Thanks for all the fab comments and its okay if
some of you don't read medicals. As long as you love heroes and sexy men
you will love this story. Thanks for stopping by;-)

I don't watch much television, So I'd have to go back to
M*A*S*H*. I did have a thing for Hawkeye. Loved the dedication
& the lunacy of the man.
(Mary Preston 6:48am July 6, 2013)
My medical heroes were Dr .Kildare and Dr.Casey way back when. I wouldn't want to change anything about them.
(Cathy Phillips 5:28pm July 6, 2013)
May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody that
really understands what they're talking about on the web.
You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and
make it important. More people must check this out and
understand this side of the story. It's surprising you
aren't more popular since you definitely have the gift.
