He now splits his time between Half Moon Bay, California, and Portland, Oregon.
J.D. is the author of Catching Babies, a medical novel, and Bleeding Edge and Oxymorons, two works of non-fiction about the American health care system. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and dozens of other publications.
