About the Author
B. J. Lucknow is a mature writer whose varied background includes being a teacher, library assistant in a military setting, and finally a hospital technician that gave him a bird’s eye view of the idiosyncrasies that drive people to bizarre behavior. Using exaggeration in the portrayal of his characters in this novel and a vivid imagination to develop plots and twists, his varied background was the key. Lucknow is the second youngest child in the family of 10, and would have had a boring youth in an economically challenged family if not for his knack in making up stories. At an early age, he decided to pursue medicine as a career but was thwarted by lack of funds and poor health. Using innate interest in medicine and years of experience working in a hospital, he has created a credible description of an earlier era when nurses wore white uniforms and doctors were given deferential treatment not always merited.
