Hi! My name is Russell Bessette. I'm a retired cancer surgeon who has had a passion for writing for years.
My writing experience includes nearly 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 8 medical textbook chapters, over $30 million of research grants, and my most recently published medical thrillers - Bent Oath and Fatal Oath.
The driving force for each of my thriller novels is exposure of the greed and corruption in the healthcare insurance industrial complex.
Although my novels are written for entertainment, and use fictional characters and locations, their underlying theme is based on over 45 years of healthcare experience.
As a practicing surgeon for 25 years, and as Past Chairman of the New York State Public Health Council, and Executive Director of the New York State Office of Science, technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR), I've had the opportunity to become intimately aware of the inner politics of medical care delivery.
I believe that any novel should strive for entertainment, but also convey information unknow to readers from other professions.
My thriller novel course seeks to provide you with the tools that can propel you into achieving these same goals.
