Kimmery Martin is an emergency medicine physician, book reviewer, and author interviewer originally from Berea, Kentucky. The Queen of Hearts, her debut novel about a secret in the friendship between a cardiologist and a trauma surgeon, mixes humor and domestic drama with the all-consuming life-or-death world of the practice of medicine. It has garnered praise from Publishers Weekly (“Excellent…realistic and vivid”), The Harvard Crimson (“An impressive debut, full of warmth and excitement”), and the The New York Times (“Martin leverages her own background as a doctor to great effect throughout”). Kimmery resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, three children, and the world’s most obstinate dog. Her next two medically-themed novels are forthcoming from Penguin Random House.
