Bainbridge author’s first book ‘Oxygen’ out July 1

Inside the operating room, inside humanity The patient is prepped for surgery, laying horizontal on the operating table, staring up into a pinpointed vastness of bright light. The anesthesiologist readies the syringe and flushes the drug into the IV. She watches the patient’s face and posture slacken as they drift out of consciousness, and everything fades to black ... . It’s an intimate moment, says Dr. Marie Heaton, a moment of transferred power. But what if the patient doesn’t wake up? Heaton’s an anesthesiologist in Bainbridge authoress Carol Cassella’s debut novel, “Oxygen,” in bookstores July 1.

For Sharlene Martin, here’s the fun part about being a literary agent: “I wake up every morning, and my job is to make dreams come true.” That said, Martin won’t wave a magic wand to get an author’s book published, no matter how good it is. In fact, she expects a lot of Cinderella-esque legwork – the kind the princess undertook before her transformation – from every writer she represents. Publishing, she believes, is as much about commerce as it is about art. A scant month ago, Martin left the Los Angeles-based offices of Martin Literary Management in the hands of staff and opened a satellite office here on the island.
