About the author (1968)

The medical background of Frank Slaughter is evident in much of his work; he received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1930. He uses medical terminology to give his books authenticity. Slaughter began writing as a hobby---first short stories and then novels---and he has also written nonfiction. A fascination with biblical stories led him to write The Road to Bithynina (1951), a book about St. Luke, who was also a physician. Slaughter enjoys research and does many revisions of his manuscripts, and his hard work shows in the well-crafted books he produces. Having more than 60 million books in print testifies to Slaughter's long-lasting popularity in America and abroad.
