S. E. Sasaki is a physician with a BSc in biology and an MSc in neurophysiology. In between her writing jobs, she works as a surgical assistant, dealing with elective and emergency surgery. Her first book, Welcome to the Madhouse, which she is offering for free on Kobo, iTunes, and Nook was shortlisted for a Watty Award for best original novel in the science fiction and fantasy genre.
In the book, Doctor Grace Lord, a lieutenant in the Conglomerate Medical Corps, has come to the medical space station known as the Nelson Mandela as the new surgical fellow. With previous experience as a combat surgeon in the field, she is unprepared for what awaits her on the Conglomerate's Premier Medical Space Station.
Aboard the Nelson Mandela, countless cryopods are filled with casualties of animal adapted military forces, and it is up to the staff to repair the wounded combat soldiers for redeployment. When disaster strikes, Grace and company must race against time to stave off annihilation.
S. E. Sasaki said: "Having survived ten broken bones and three torn ligaments from sports such as downhill skiing, ice hockey, soccer, horseback riding, whitewater kayaking, whitewater canoeing, tennis, and simply hiking, I have decided to slow down a little."
She went on to say: "Sitting at a computer typing seems less physically traumatic than all the sports, and in my mind I can have just as much adventure."
The debut thriller deals with issues like the trauma inflicted on space combat marines through deadly weapons and biowarfare, and focuses on the doctors struggling to repair them for future combat.
