Non-Fiction Author Panel with Tish Davidson and Don Reed

Non-Fiction Author Panel with Tish Davidson and Don Reed

Join prolific authors Tish Davidson and Don Reed as they discuss their new books and delve into the process of writing medical non-fiction. Both Davidson and Reed have tackled highly technical health issues in their books and have compiled what they’ve learned into easy-to-understand science.

Tish Davidson, A.M. has written everything from fiction to textbooks to reports for the Food and Drug Administration. Her new book The Vaccine Debate, explains the science behind vaccines, how they work, and why they are controversial.

“Writing this book gave me a chance to share my fascination with human biology in non-technical language high school students and adults can understand."


Don Reed is the Vice President of Public Policy for Americans for Cures Foundation, he has written numerous articles about the ocean and oceanic wildlife. In his second book on stem cells, “California Cures! How the California Stem Cell Program is Fighting Your Incurable Disease!” he details the early challenges of Proposition 71, the progress to find cures, and the road ahead for stem cell research in California.

I have to try and put their (scientists) thoughts into “people talk”, making it hopefully entertaining—while still being true to the science.”
