Doc is just an ordinary veterinarian trying to make ends meet — until she stumbles upon an injured dragon and her world is turned upside down. Unable to resist helping an animal in need, she cares for the creature, but quickly realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew as dragons from far and wide begin seeking out her medical assistance.
Soon, Doc’s peaceful veterinary clinic becomes a trial by fire as she develops dragon medicine on the fly while trying to keep her unpredictable, occasionally destructive patients a secret. As she navigates unfamiliar anatomy, perilous physiology, and peculiar behavior, Doc must learn to bond with the extraordinary creatures that have chosen to trust her with not only their own lives, but their species’ survival.
Can the Dragon Doc find a way to balance her normal life with helping her new patients — or will her career and her clinic go down in flames? One thing is for sure: life with dragons is never dull. And in the end, Doc might need the dragons just as much as they need her.
Praise for Wings and Wounds
“The Dragon Doc’s Wings and Wounds takes the reader on a fantastical journey through the trials and tribulations of veterinary medicine for the most magnificent of beasts. Dr. S. K. Burkman wields a fiery sense of humor that leaves the reader in stitches while also tugging at the heartstrings. Be prepared for a wild flight… and don’t forget to pack the burn salve.” — NJ Gallegos, author of The Broken Heart
“Very well-written and captivating book – couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait for the next installment.” —D.H.
SQUEAK!…squeak? Most veterinarians don’t have patients crash-landing in the parking lot. But then, most veterinarians don’t see dragons. After years of treating these rather unusual patients, the Dragon Doc still finds dragons impossible to predict. She and her young daughter, Ember, encounter a dragon with a peculiar, noisy problem that turns out to have a surprising source. Doc and her daughter team up to help him, but can they save him before it’s too late?
If you enjoyed Harry Potter, The Lady Trent Memoirs, or All Creatures Great and Small, you will adore The Dragon Doc Tales series. Squeaky Hatchling, the sequel to Wings and Wounds, is Dr. S. K. Burkman’s debut mini-novel.
