Kairn (Mates of the Alliance: Book 1)Our guest today is Fionne Foxxe Farraday, Author of KAIRN: Mates of the Alliance. Today, she will discuss her first novel and how she became an author.  Kairn is the first book in an eight-book series that is full of romance, and an unlikely love between species.

Fionne Foxxe Farraday is a medical professional working in the area of pulmonary and critical care medicine. After years of working with patients, Farraday faced medical issues in March 2020 that put her on enforced medical leave without call responsibilities.  An avid reader, she soon exhausted her list of books and found herself bored with TV, leading her to begin outlining the story that would become KAIRN: Mates of the Alliance. Returning to ICU work during the dark days of the first Covid-19 wave, Fionne continued writing as a way to cope with the intense demands and the losses of countless patients. The writing took on a life of its own as Farraday fashioned the fictional happy endings which were in short supply in the ICU full of Covid-19 patients.

With her background in medicine and family members who served in WWII and Vietnam, Farraday’s books are a salute to all medical and military personnel whose sacrifices allow us to do what we do. A mother, grandmother, and animal lover, Fionne Foxxe Farraday lives in Cookville, TN. For more information go to her website at: https://matesofthealliance.com/

Did you know that more than 37 million people live with Diabetes today and many of them, have a condition called Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy or Diabetic Nerve Pain? It is a common complication that most often affects the lower extremities and normally presents itself as tingling, numbness, burning, shooting, or stabbing sensations. These symptoms can cause debilitating pain. There are far too many patients who may not recognize Diabetic Nerve Pain symptoms or are living with unresolved pain.

Avertias Pharma has partnered with the American Chronic Pain Association and members of the Medical Patient Community to launch the “Name that Pain Contest to Bring Awareness to Diabetic Nerve Pain and emphasizing the importance of identifying symptoms and talking to your healthcare provider earlier in your treatment Journey.
