A Word from Sandra...
Emergency Reunion is the final story in a series, featuring members of the Steele family—an FBI agent, a firefighter, and in this one, Sherri, a paramedic. Sherri was introduced in Perilous Waters as the paramedic cousin of Sam Steele, and her character was developed further in Identity Withheld when she treated the heroine.
However, at the time of writing those stories, I hadn’t yet decided what Sherri’s story would look like, although I’d established three things about her:
- She has a close-knit extended family
- she saved a baby last year
- she is competent and emotionally-cool on the job
So when it came time to write her story, I decided to make what should’ve been a wondrous accomplishment—saving a baby—a heartrending pressure point in her backstory. That is, the point when she had to choose between saving a baby and saving her partner from a fatal gunshot wound.
The rest of the suspense plot evolved from there, as I picked the brain of a female EMT about all the potential scary situations paramedics might, and do, face on a daily basis.
As for the romance, I decided to make the story a reunion romance, because of everything Sherri would face, and the unaffected front I wanted her to put on, I needed a hero who already knew her well and who had lots of good reasons to want to help her.
