"I'm a lover of the outdoors. My passions are boating, fishing and diving. Though I'm a doctor by trade and my practice is very important to me, the creative arts also have played a large role in my life providing an outlet for the artistic side of my brain.
Whether it's playing the guitar, the piano or writing songs, I'm always looking for a new challenge. With my latest endeavor, I've immersed myself into the world of literary fiction. It has truly become one of the most mentally stimulating forays of my life."
-- D.A. Field
A doctor by day and an author by night, D.A. Field is a collector of memories, whose favorite attire is shorts and flip-flops. Field is just as serious and committed to his family and playtime as he is serious about his work with his patients in his successful periodontal practice. An energetic, adventuring water enthusiast, just give him his boat, a clear sky and an open ocean, and you will find yourself in the presence of an ultra-happy man with a great outlook on life.
His wife of 20 years, Carla, and their two children, are his world. “I write because it’s an opportunity to vent my artistic side and my love of adventure. I also wanted to do something that would involve my family and inspire my children.”
So how does someone who is a healer find himself lured to writing adventure, action thrillers with a little sci-fi and conspiracy thrown in? Expressing his sentiments through words comes naturally to Field. He has been a musician since age 12. While successfully pursuing his academic goals, he played in several bands and wrote the lyrics for numerous songs along the way.
That talent, coupled with Field’s insatiable curiosity about people and science is a winning combo. The spark for Blood Memory Society came from a tale about a family member growing up in poverty amid a family of wealthy people. That story has intrigued him since childhood and his imagination, education and experiences fueled the rest.
