I'm currently an internal medicine physician at the University of Nebraska, and an author. Weird twist of careers, but it's working out somehow! I love taking care of patients and teaching med students, and have been writing professionally for about seven years now.
My first two books are biology-based science fiction for young adults, CONTROL and its sequel, CATALYST (Penguin, 2013 & 2015).
This year, I have three books coming out and I branched out a bit in genre.
A BEAUTIFUL POISON (Lake Union, July 2017) is an adult historical forensic mystery that takes place in 1918.
QUACKERY: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything (Workman, September 2017) is a humorous look at some of the awful treatments humans have used in the past, such as lobotomies and leechcraft.
THE NOVEMBER GIRL (Entangled/Macmillan, November 2017) is a young adult, contemporary/magical realism novel set on Isle Royale in Lake Superior.
I'd love to reconnect with my CTY alums, if you're out there. Or if you're a student and have career questions, let me know!
Hi there! I'd love to connect with some of the friends I made at CTY, if you guys are out there, or if you're a student and have some career questions.
I'm currently an assistant professor of internal medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where I love to teach med students and take care of my patients. I majored in pre-med/biology with a minor in English at Columbia University, in NYC (Class of 1993), did some bench research for a while, then went to NYU School of Medicine (Class of 1998).
After a life on the east coast, we moved to Nebraska ten years ago and I took a swing at writing--so I have two careers now. My first two novels, CONTROL and CATALYST are biology-heavy young adult science fiction that came out with Penguin in 2013 and 2015.
I've been branching out since then. This year, I have three books coming out.
A BEAUTIFUL POISON (Lake Union, July 2017) is an historical forensics adult mystery that takes place in 1918.
QUACKERY: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything (Workman, September 2017) is a humorous non-fiction look at all the unpleasant ways we've tried to heal ourselves, from lobotomies to leeches.
THE NOVEMBER GIRL (Entangled/Macmillan, November 2017) is another young adult novel, but it's more magical realism/romance/contemporary, and takes place on Isle Royale on Lake Superior.
A few twists in my career path for sure. I'll always remember how much fun I had that summer at CTY. I'd love to connect with my alums! Find me at LydiaYKang@gmail.com
