Who is Jen? Jen Finelli is a world-traveling scifi author who’s gone swimming with sharks, escaped being locked in a German nunnery, discovered murals and poetry in underground urban caves, explored jungles and coral deserts, and hung out with everyone from dead people and prostitutes to secret political influencers and Senators. She is coping with life as an MD by telling you stories, and when she grows up she’ll be a superhero.
This whole thing started with a story Jen wrote that helps fund real-life adventures. See, SKYE is the storm-tossed comic character out for revenge on the author who murdered his family. JACE is the math-loving blerd trying to escape his father’s deadly legacy. When their worlds collide, Jace must choose between the real world he’s always hated, and the comic book world he’s always loved–and Skye must decide if killing his author will save his world…or damn his soul.

(Search the page for “Death & The Doctor”) There, you’ll hear about the deaths that convinced me we’re doing it wrong; my dream to take modern medicine to those who can’t afford it; and ultimately the reason I left the American residency system.
