April’s Noon Author Talk welcomes author Gerald Stulc.
“The Surgion’s Mate” is historical fiction, a sweeping epic of drama, intrigue, romance and coming-of age during the Napoleonic Wars.
From Gerald: “Ninety percent of historical fiction is based on careful research of the period in order to create as accurate and realistic a stage for our actors to play out their fates and though the action and medical descriptions in my novel occurred two hundred years ago, I have directly witnessed everything medical presented in my novel.”
Gerald obtained his MD at the University of Iowa, and completed his general surgery residency at Georgetown University. He completed a transplant surgery fellowship and a cancer surgery fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo and was a clinical assistant professor in surgery at the University of Louisville.
Additionally, he served for more than 15 years in the U.S. Naval Reserve as a flight surgeon, retiring with the rank of Captain (06). He is a lecturer, member of the Society for Military History, the Association for Military Surgeons of the United States, and current president of the Saratoga Torch Club.
