I was a NYS Emergency Medical Technician, CPR and First Aid Instructor, and volunteer with a local ambulance corps for nearly three decades. I responded to numerous emergencies, performed CPR, delivered babies, transported trauma victims and sometimes just offered comfort to a patient during transport to the hospital. I write a monthly column on EMS Issues for First Responder Newspaper and articles for other EMS publications. And I’ve written two novels based on EMS.

My entire family is a blend of both volunteer and career EMS and Emergency Medical Services will always be near and dear to my heart.

Happy EMS Week to all EMS personnel.
Thank you EMTs & Paramedics for all you do.

REVIEW
FIVE STARS
A Non-Stop Thriller that Will Leave You Longing for More
Tracy Riva
… Matt and Sudah face obstacles that severely test their relationship and their marriage. I do not want to go into anymore of the specifics here, but while Matt and Sudah’s relationship plays an
important role in the book, the story is much more of an extremely well written thriller and I definitely recommend reading it.

REVIEW
a depth well-done
Janet Lane Walters
In Hyphema, author Chelle Cordero meets
headlong a number of real problems facing her characters. She doesn’t
sugar-coat cultural differences and prejudice. The series of incidents and the
deaths faced by Matt and Sudah cause them to face these problems and gives the
love story a depth well-done.

The world of EMS is filled with dedicated and selfless people, among which is Chelle Cordero. She is an author and EMT who spent over 27 years volunteering for her local ambulance corps. Most of her family, including her husband, son, daughter and even daughter-in-law, have also volunteered as EMS providers. Cordero has written two EMS-based suspense novels as well as a factual guide for the layman, “Until the Ambulance Arrives.” She’s is extremely proud of her family’s involvement in EMS and has “translated” this pride into her writing.

Adrenaline rush

by Chelle Cordero

 

As a (volunteer) Emergency Medical Technician, I know what it is to arrive at a scene in a “big truck” with lights flashing and sirens blaring. I admit there is a bit of inflated ego to run into a scene and have strangers clear the way for you to reach a patient in need. There is also a momentary panic inside to look at your patient’s eyes as they look to you for help, sometimes to save their life, and the adrenaline kicks in to do all that you can do to make them more comfortable and get them to the hospital alive.

 

In over 25-years of doing this, I’ve known the euphoria of delivering babies, the desperations of knowing how precious every second is, the frustration of losing a patient, and the tears shed as a family member clings to you because you are their only hope.

 

EMS is a passion of mine. Whether an EMS provider career or volunteer, I have tremendous respect for everyone who takes their training and goes out into the world with the most important equipment, their hands and their brain, to use the equipment on an ambulance to make a difference. My husband and I both joined a volunteer ambulance squad when our two kids were little – and they grew into the EMS family. In addition to (still) volunteering for the same ambulance corps, our daughter is a career Paramedic and our son is a career EMT. (& forgive my crassness, but I am damn proud of them both).

 

Perhaps this is why I enjoy creating characters who are first responders. I’ve lived it, I’ve loved it, I respect it.

 

One of the characters I really enjoyed writing about is Julie Jennings, the heroine of my mystery thriller Final Sin. Julie is a NYS Paramedic, she is also a passionate woman who likes to live life to its fullest and cares for the people around her completely. Like most real life first responders, Julie isn’t in the field for “the money” (EMS is a truly under-appreciated profession) – she is in it to help.

Blurb for Final Sin

Deputy Sheriff Commander Jake Carson has his hands full with the investigation of a brutal multiple homicide, a troubled son and a vindictive ex-wife when he meets young, free-spirited paramedic Julie Jennings. He is immediately drawn to her and finds himself unexpectedly falling in love. Julie finds herself just as drawn to him. When Julie becomes the subject of an obsession, it puts both of their lives in extreme danger…

 

I started a Listopia list on GoodReads for Everday HerosThe main character(s) is a first responder (EMT, Paramedic, Police Officer, Fire fighter, etc). Why don’t you take a moment to go there and check it out? Please add any books you’ve read that fit the description and please vote for the ones that are there (three of mine are listed: Final SinHyphema, and Within the Law)

Tracy Riva recently reviewed HYPHEMA, and it was a GREAT review!

This is what she has to say:

“I sat down to read Hyphema late one night. I thought I would start it, read for about thirty minutes and then go to sleep; instead, I stayed up till almost four in the morning reading it. Immediately immersed in the story, the tension never let up enough for me to even consider putting it down and coming back to it later.”  (read more…)

Thanks Tracy Riva!
