Dear Readers,

Welcome to The McFadden Series! If you crave engaging
family
drama
s and wish the story you're reading would never end, then
this novel series may interest you.
A few notes before you begin...

The McFadden Series, by Mary King, is a modern saga. A saga
is a long story, account, or sequence of events. The story unfolds
and progresses with each successive novel (much like a TV series
where the episodes are
linked.) Start with book #1 and continue
reading the books in proper order to avoid missing vital details.

The McFadden Series is character-driven, meaning the emphasis
is on the characters, their lives, reactions, emotions, and
relationships with each other. We see
and relate to their
accomplishments and daily struggles. Readers experience
constant
growth and conflicts  as personalities mature and lives intertwine.

The McFadden Series features (wayward, homeless, neglected
,
abused, gay
) teens and young adult characters. Expect strong
language, incorrigible behavior, compassion, and tough love.
Characters
with physical disabilities educate readers, enlightening
them with answers to sensitive questions. Watch out for explicit
(and graphic) medical details.

How does the story begin?
Dr. Lauren McFadden and her
husband
Bryan get more than they bargain for when they leave
their jobs to fulfill a dream. They set out to build an accessible
home and provide rehabilitation therapies to abandoned
teenagers who need specialized medical care. Adam, Devon,
Philip, and Michael arrive within six months of the home's
completion. Med students Buddy and Noah shine as hired
caregivers.
(Treatment of Choice, Book #1 in The McFadden Series.)

I created The McFadden Series from personal experience as a
caregiver (conditions including, but not limited to spinal cord injury,
traumatic brain injury, spinal muscular atrophy, profound
developmental delay, dementia). I'm a former rehab hospital
worker (PT, OT, speech, etc
.) My perspective is unique and is
based on reality.
Don't expect sugar-coated solutions or even
happy endings all the time; life doesn't work that way.
 

Are the books inspirational?  There are a few inspirational
moments, but it's important to know each character is trying to find
his place and survive--do what he needs to do--without drawing
unnecessary attention to his medical circumstance. As in real life,
each person wants to be accepted, recognized for his abilities, and
treated like everyone else.

The characters face problems and issues not always resolved
within one book, so keep reading to see what happens next!
