An Atlanta cardiologist, Dr. Don Jansen, and his wife, Debra Jansen, recently published a fictional medical novel, Scar Tissue, about a troubled heart surgeon.
Don practices non-interventional cardiology at the Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital of Atlanta. His primary interests include nuclear cardiology, heart failure and heart transplantation. He served as medical director of the heart transplant program for nearly twenty years and is one of the Southeast’s leading authorities in the field of heart failure. Don has dreamed of writing a medically-based fiction novel for years, and Scar Tissue has made that dream a reality.
Co-author Debra Jansen worked in retail management with Federated and Sak’s Fifth Avenue as a buyer and store general manager. After finishing her undergraduate degree at the Art Institute of Atlanta, graduating magna cum laude in the field of photographic imaging, Debra went on to win several international awards for her photography. She specializes in medical documentation and location portraiture and has published several cover and feature article photographs in ATLANTA Medicine, the journal of the Medical Association of Atlanta.
Interested in writing a book for years, Debra welcomed the collaborative opportunity to do so with her husband, thus utilizing both of their skills. Debra’s and Donald’s individual areas of expertise blend perfectly in the genre of medically-oriented novels. As a cardiovascular physician, Donald provides technical advice while Debra uses her creative writing and visual imagery skills to craft the narrative.
