It takes more than a doctor to mend a broken heart.

Ollie Warne is fresh out of nursing school and working his dream job as a paediatric cardiology nurse at St Cross Children's Hospital. Wanting to start the New Year fresh from personal heartache and his track record of falling for the wrong man, Ollie’s New Year’s Resolution is to rid himself of emotional baggage and live a life of carefree liaisons.

But before the resolution can even begin, Ollie is called to care for eight-year-old Daisy Mallone struggling after heart surgery. Her father, Jacob Mallone, never leaves her side, apart from the times her mother comes to visit.

The tempestuous, and somewhat estranged, relationship of her parents are cause for concern enough but the brooding nature of the father has Ollie investing far more time than usual for his Room One patient. Striking up a friendship of sneaking takeaways into the ward, card playing until dawn and the occasional break up of domestic fights, Ollie finds himself drawn to Jacob and becomes a confessional sounding board for the man who is harbouring more guilt and past demons than even Ollie is, which is saying something.

The growing attraction makes it hard for Ollie to keep his distance, but he has to?not only do the ethics of his profession demand it… but Ollie is still somewhat involved with another man. One who has a huge stake in Ollie’s life, both personal and professional.

Ollie is risking more than just his job by getting involved with a patient’s father? much more even than the success of his New Year’s Resolution, something that is supposed to ensure that, this time, he won’t feel a thing.

C F White

Brought up in a relatively small town in Hertfordshire, C F White managed to do what most other residents try to do and fail—leave.

Studying at a West London university, she realised there was a whole city out there waiting to be discovered, so, much like Dick Whittington before her, she never made it back home and still endlessly searches for the streets paved with gold, slowly coming to the realisation they’re mostly paved with chewing gum. And the odd bit of graffiti. And those little circles of yellow spray paint where the council point out the pot holes to someone who is supposedly meant to fix them instead of staring at them vacantly whilst holding a polystyrene cup of watered-down coffee.

She eventually moved West to East along that vast District Line and settled for pie and mash, cockles and winkles and a bit of Knees Up Mother Brown to live in the East End of London; securing a job and creating a life, a home and a family.

Having worked in Higher Education for most of her career, a life-altering experience brought pen back to paper after she’d written stories as a child but never had the confidence to show them to the world. Having embarked on this writing malarkey, C F White cannot stop. So strap in, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride...
