Synopsis of More Than Bones:

Dr. Emily Norton believes the practice of medicine is all about science and hard work. There’s no room in her world for supernatural nonsense. But Emily’s carefully orchestrated life—from her fiancé and friends to her new surgical residency—is about to be turned upside-down by a mysterious amulet that seems wickedly capable of exactly such nonsense.

Longer description of More Than Bones:

Dr. Emily Norton is a recent med school grad starting her surgical residency at a renowned hospital in Baltimore. She’s dedicated her life to science and reason—so when she receives a supposedly magical amulet from an eccentric neighbor, she ignores the old man’s warning.

Almost immediately, Emily’s well-planned world begins to unravel. At first, the problems are minor, like finding herself in trouble with the hospital administration on her first day at work. But soon Emily is dealing with much bigger issues, from losing her job and fiancé to being framed for a patient’s suicide.

As Emily struggles to comprehend the amulet’s strange effects, she also faces a dilemma about coincidence and fate: none of these disasters could have been caused by a mere amulet, right? Because everyone knows: there’s no such thing as magic.

Desperate and confused, Emily will need to use every bit of her reason, love and faith to confront and conquer the cursed amulet—even if it means forsaking everything she’s ever believed.

At turns darkly suspenseful and playfully lighthearted, More Than Bones chronicles Emily’s mystical journey with humor, empathy, and more than a few surprises.

Reviews:

Craig David Singer’s cheeky More Than Bones is a tale of self-discovery filled with quirky comedy and surprising depth…Wicked and pleasantly lighthearted, More Than Bones weds individual faith to a compelling mystery.

Genre + Q&A

New Adult Fiction

More Than Bones is a New Adult novel with a dash of suspense and a bit of whimsy (an early plot point involves a mysterious cat named Helga).

What is New Adult Fiction, you might ask?  In short, it’s a developing genre of fiction with protagonists in the 18–30 age bracket. More from Wikipedia here.  Some comparable books in the genre are Maybe In Another Life: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, Gemini: A Novel by Carol Casella and The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart by Anna Bell.

Craig, what inspired you to write More Than Bones?

Early in my medical career, I knew I had to get “used to” witnessing, and often being involved in, the difficulties and tragedies of other people’s lives. Along the way, I also experienced some personal difficulties of my own. The negative emotions weighed on me, but I’m a resilient person. One of the ways I tried to create more positive energy in my life was to write a novel about a young doctor facing similar circumstances: working through personal problems while still helping patients face their challenges. Fortunately, the novel quickly took some highly fictional turns (hopefully for the better).
