I ran across a blog that can help — Redwood's Medical Edge - Medical Fact For Your Fiction. The blog written by Jordyn Redwood offers a variety of medical information for your fiction. There is a disclaimer that this is not medical advice.
Jordyn's Twitter bio goes like this:
Suspense writer and pediatric emergency nurse. I run a medical blog for historical and contemporary writers.Her blog's bio explains her medical credentials. She's an RN. Her novel Lilly's Ashes will be published in spring 2012. She's working on a sequel.
This blog is designed to help both historical and contemporary authors learn methods to write medically accurate fiction. I'll field medical questions, analyze medical scenes, and post on topics that can increase the tension and conflict in any story.She had guests on her blog to discuss medical issues and will answer medical questions on her blog.
Some recent posts:
- Author Beware: Use of Medical Equipment
- Author Beware: Medication Concentrations
- Not Kidding Around: Alina Adams
- Medical Question: Life Threatening Condition 1830's
If you aren't looking for medical information, take a look at Jordyn's blog anyway. She's a great example of a writer creating a niche blog.
