#WW WOW Wednesday: Jerrid Edgington

Welcome to the first WOW Wednesday of 2014. My 15th guest is Jerrid Edgington
a paramedic - that makes me go wow! - and author of Racing the ReaperTake it away, Jerrid... 

About Racing the Reaper

Jacob Myers was a normal, average, run-of-the-mill kind of guy. He often felt that his life was meant for something greater. But without any formal education, he was stuck in a mundane office job. That all changed one night when he suffered a spinal cord injury that nearly left him paralysed and trapped in a wheelchair. Through his recovery process, he found the direction in life he’d been longing for: to get a job in EMS. 

Jacob suffered through mistake after mistake with his new job, but began to learn how to deal with life and death situations, as well as the emotional and physical rigours that the job put him through. After two years as an EMT-Basic, he went to paramedic school. Upon completion, he took to the streets and had to learn a completely new set of rules. 

As if his job wasn’t difficult enough, Jacob gained a stalker who was a former patient and she made his life a living hell. In dealing with life and death, followed by a stalker, Jacob was not sure if he’d made the right career choice. Along with seeing the things he did in the field, he began to question his faith in God. Would he survive the streets and the psychotic stalker, Becca?

Victim to Victor!, November 17, 2013
“This is a phenomenal read and worth every penny! Edgington's writing is crisp, visual and captivating. A story of victim to victor will have you turning page after page until the end. The writer brings the main character to life so well I could hear him speaking! I felt his pain deeply and rejoiced in his accomplishments. Awesome job.”
