About Me

Ed Dasso's works of fiction leverage many of his "stranger than fiction" experiences from years of practice at major medical centers and community hospitals.

"You might be surprised at some of the events in the books that are based on an actual experience."

Fiction writing is reviving a lost love from earlier periods in his life where he enjoyed writing short stories.

In addition to a number of years as a practicing anesthesiologist and critical care specialist, he has published articles in national healthcare journals, written many "Ask the Doctor" columns and has spoken frequently at national healthcare forums. He has also been instrumental in designing and deploying population health programs to help people deal with depression related to poor health.

The "Jack Bass Black Cloud Chronicles" contain 3 books in the medical thriller/suspense genre.

   Book 1: "In the Line of Ire" (WIP)
Dr. Jack Bass is the central character; unlike some fantasy fictional doctors, like Marcus Welby, he is human, with human flaws. He believes strongly in trying to "do the right thing" but, sometimes, faced with unexpected and unbelievable scenarios, struggles with understanding what "the right thing" is. Though Jack Bass has overcome much adversity in his life, sometimes he feels he could be the poster-boy for the adage, "Good guys finish last."
Follow Jack and see how he proves otherwise as he uncovers wickedness and kicks ass to foil the schmucks who callously toss people's lives aside, or even end lives, as part of their greedy pursuit.

I wanted to take time today to introduce some folks to a talented new indie author that I've had the pleasure to come to know.

Remember the name, Elle, Bright, because I think you'll be hearing it a lot as her writing career blossoms. Her 1st novel, "Fall of Darkness" was responsible for making me a convert to a genre which I previously would not have considered looking at. As I mentioned in my Amazon review, her style, while distinctly unique, reminded me of Dan Brown. Elle is going to be doing a blog tour in October; check it out at:


In the meantime, you can find, "Fall of Darkness" on Amazon. You, like many others who have bought her book, will likely enjoy it as much as I did.

One last comment I have to make is that, another reason Elle has stood out in a crowded genre is because she, like most nurses I've known, is always ready to lend a helping hand - in this case to her fellow newbie indie authors. Thanks Elle!

Elle Bright grew up in Layton, Utah. Elle currently resides in San Diego, California, with her husband, their three children, and their border collie. Elle graduated from Grand Canyon University with her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. As a practicing Registered Nurse, Elle specializes in Pediatrics, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Emergency Medicine. Fall of Darkness is Elle's first published novel. Elle is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America.
