Prognosis: Beautifully Awake

Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small town

social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced to start

over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow her father’s

advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a new city, taking

on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing so, she gets something

she never expected, an intimate behind-the-scenes look at life in the


Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more than

physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three years of

sleep running and leave you beautifully awake.


He was already dressed for the OR in his scrubs, looking ... amazing.

The beat beneath my chest started again and my mouth watered, as I

not so subtly roamed his body with my hungry eyes. All I wanted was

to feel his body against mine, get lost in where I ended and he began. It

was all I’d ever want. Forever. I finally got what he meant every time he

said mine. He was mine.

“See something you like?” He smirked.


“Baby, if you don’t stop looking at me like that I’m never gonna get out

of here.”

“Truth. Sounds perfect to me.” Now I smirked.

“Ahh fuck, you’re killing me. You know scrubs don’t hide a hard-on very


I laughed. He had a point there.

Leaning down, he kissed my nose. “Text you in a bit, see how your day is



So was this my life? I sunk back into the fluffy pillows and sighed. I

wanted this to be my morning every morning.


Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!

We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in

Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can

safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because

we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we

do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean

never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT

and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two

people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the

same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.

It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-
week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a

splash of medicine. Write what you know.

So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass

of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you,

literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally

out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is

possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight


When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty

romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on.

Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess,

baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more


Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?

Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted

for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium

makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty

much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know),

otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake

rather than one.

So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
