About the Author

EE Ottoman grew up surrounded by the farmlands and forests of upstate New York. They started writing as soon as they learned how and have yet to stop. Ottoman attended Earlham College and graduated with a degree in history, before going on to receive a graduate degree in history as well. These days they divide their time between history, writing and book preservation.

Ottoman is also a disabled, queer, trans man whose pronouns are: he/him/his. Mostly though they are a person who is passionate about history, stories and the spaces between the two.

Doctors William Blackwood and Augustus Hill could not be more of opposites. William is a quiet Black man who would prefer to organize and take on the more administrative details of doctoring, whereas Augustus is a white trans ex-Navy surgeon. When their professional interests draw them together, it's clear they're both drawn to each other personally as well. Add in concern for a trans patient Moss who's involuntarily committed at the hospital and these two decide they must break Moss out and help him find safety, while risking their own safety in the process. The characters are richly drawn and the setting is vivid. The story wades into big issues—transphobia, homophobia, racism—and handles them with deft nuance. I loved whenever they discussed medical research. Blood transfusions for William, hand washing for Augustus. They didn’t know how cutting edge they were! And of course I loved watching them fall for another and would happily read more books about their adventures.
