Conflict is the core of all fiction. Without conflict there is no story. When obstacles prevent a character from obtaining his or her goals, there is conflict...The threat of death or severe bodily injury is among the most serious and dreadful obstacles a character must face..."

Professional Reviews
The Writer Magazine
Body Trauma unquestionably provides useful information on subjects that we -and our characters - simply may not be able to avoid.

Curled Up With A Good Book
This book contains valuable information and will show you how to make it - and the clean-up - realistic.

Michael White
If Melville had been fortunate to have this helpful guide by his side, Ahab's missing leg might have been referred to as a traumatic amputation of the tibia and fibula.
