In The Night Shift, Dr. Brian Goldman shares his experiences in the witching hours at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto. We meet the kinds of patients who walk into an E.R. after midnight: late-night revellers injured on their way home after last call, teens assaulted in the streets by other teens and a woman who punches another woman out of jealousy over a man. But Goldman also reveals the emotional, heartbreaking side of everyday E.R. visits: adult children forced to make life and death decisions about critically ill parents, victims of sexual assault, and mentally ill and homeless patients looking for understanding and a quick fix in the twenty-four-hour waiting room. Written with Goldman’s trademark honesty and with surprising humour, The Night Shift is also a frank look at many issues facing the medical profession today, and it offers a highly compelling inside view into an often shrouded world.

These Notes from a Doctor’s Pocket come from the decades of ER experience of bestselling author Dr. Robert Lesslie, whose routine faced him with times of grief or pain, relief or delight, life or death. Such everyday happenings and encounters gave rise to these vignettes—in which readers will meet up with the characters, coincidences, and complications common to the emergency room: characters like Freddy, who literally shoots himself in the foot; coincidences like finally having the chance to hear what patients say to each other when doctors and nurses aren’t in the room; and complications such as dealing with parents who buy lottery tickets and alcohol instead of medicine for their little boy. These heart-tugging, heart-lifting slices of life will prompt readers to search for opportunities to give the comfort of a touch, the grace of a kind word, or a prayer that brings hope and healing.

Born in a small town in Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Lake Linden, Margaret Mayotte-Hirn grew up experiencing her life to the fullest. Today, she can look back and remember and be glad she experienced all those things that made her who she is today. She worked full-time in hospitals for 48 years and began writing when she was in her 60s. She raised three children, got a divorce, remarried, and enjoyed three new children in her life. She also gardened, raised Arabian horses and showed them, played softball since she was 26, and volunteered in her spare time. It didnt leave much time for serious writing, but the desire was there. Leaving full-time hospital work did give her more time to do more. She volunteered and was selected Volunteer of the Year for 2 different organizations. She traveled states-wide to play softball in tournaments. She was an advocate for senior action and exercise. At age 70, she underwent bilateral knee replacements which slowed her down for a little while. Determined to return to former activity, she dove into therapy. Within 6 months, she regained all her mobility and resumed all her activities. During her sloweddown time, she thought about publishing the 2 books she had written in past years. With that taking place, who knows maybe her next passion will be writing. Inquisitive, daring thoughtful, caring and looks at life in a simple straight-forward way and addresses its challenges. These attributes are refl ected in her writing.

I have been writing my short stories and pomes for many years . but just recently I have put them on face book .a lot of my friends would comment and say they were beautiful and to me it’s my way of relaxing in the Lord . I write something most everyday . I thank first my Lord and saviour Jusus Christ and I thank you the reader . and a very special thanks goes to Julie Pauley and all her wonderful family who encouraged me also to write this book I could not have done it without them. there was something a close friend of mine would say all the time but has sense went to be with the Lord and will be missed by the many friends and family he has . and it would be the right words for my ending ’’Well Glory ‘’
