Meet the Author

I'm a veterinarian living in the Portland, Oregon area; my practice focuses on small exotic pets such as ferrets, rabbits, rodents, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, skunks, reptiles, etc. My household includes 2 daughters, Anna & Sarah, and my lovely wife, Denise, plus Molly the cat. My first published novel was "Dog Daze & Cat Naps— A Vet Student's Odyssey." This is a humorous story about the trials and tribulations of a young student as he makes his way through 4 years of veterinary school (based loosely on my own experiences). I'm also a science fiction author. My fun short story "Outside Looking In" is featured in the recent sci-fi anthology collection "Yondering". My publisher is Wildside Press (wildsidebooks.com), and my works are also available online via Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc.

My new sci-fi novel "The Battle for Eden" is finally out! It's part of a double back-to-back paperback, paired with Charles Gramlich's novel "Under the Ember Star". This story is the 3rd in a series of books about the war between humans and Knackers (a crab-like carnivorous alien species). The novel is written as a stand-alone story, so reading the prior 2 books in the series is not necessary; you can understand and enjoy "Eden" on its own!

I'm currently working on another book in the Knacker series, which I hope to have finished later this year, entitled "Dark Angels."You can read free samples of all my works on my Facebook site, look me up as "Authorvet", and click "Notes" near the top of the page, for samples of each story! If you like what you see, then feel free to share the pages with your friends!

    A book to love, about animals and the doctors that help them

    I loved Dr. Burgess's book! It's funnier than I expected, with lots of insight into vet medicine and what it takes to be an animal doctor. The story is interesting throughout, and the author's sense of humor really spices it up. He has a great take on life and love, and lots of compassion for his patients. The characters are believable-- some flawed, some lovable, some silly. Read this book!
