A Tribute to Dianne Drake

We’re taking some time today to remember a wonderful author and friend, Dianne Drake.  Dianne passed away in November and we’re paying tribute to her with memories from the Medical Romance Authors and Editors.

No tribute to Dianne is complete without her own words, full of humour, wisdom and inspiration.  Dianne wrote regularly for this blog, and if you’d like to enjoy some of her posts again, please click here.

 

Susan Carlisle

I met Dianne at an RWA conference over ten years ago before I even became a medical author. She was warm and encouraging to a want-to-be. I was so excited to respond to her welcome when I announced I had sold my book.

She mentioned one time how many books she had written for medicals. I was so impressed that I called her the Nora Roberts of Medicals. I think she liked that idea.

Dianne was a multitalented person. I read her bio once and thought she might be Wonder Woman from all she had accomplished. She had written hundreds of articles for magazines, big time magazines. She also had a deep insight into the world. If you would like to read some of those check out her past posts here. You won’t be disappointed.

I will miss Dianne. Her smile, her graciousness and her insights. Thankfully she left part of herself with the world forever- her words. For those, I will always be grateful.

 

Julia Williams, Editor, and Sheila Hodgson, Senior Editor, Harlequin Mills and Boon

First published by Harlequin in 2001, Dianne Drake soon found herself in her natural milieu writing for the medical line. A former nurse, there was little Dianne didn’t know about life on the frontline of medical care. She expertly coupled that with gorgeous romances between sometimes unlikely heroes and heroines, that were loved by readers the world over. She was a consummate professional and thoroughly dedicated to her books and readers. Whatever life threw at her – and it threw a lot – Dianne had the enviable capacity to shrug her shoulders, pick herself up and soldier on. She somehow managed to meet deadlines while being ill in hospital, or recovering from surgery, and her capacity for humour despite difficult circumstances was second to none. Typically, she produced her final book, Falling for her Army Doc, despite being severely ill – a fact she didn’t reveal until after the book was done. Right until the end she continued to work on her next manuscript, one which sadly didn’t see the light of day – which was also typical of her spirit and dedication. She will be a huge loss to the Harlequin family, and, it has been our great privilege and pleasure to have been able to work with her so long. We will all miss her very much.  Julia Williams and Sheila Hodgson

 

Kate Hardy

I was so sorry to hear of Dianne’s passing. She’d been a colleague and friend for years, and we bonded over a shared love of spaniels and Joe Bonamassa. Every time one of us got tickets for a gig, we’d message the other excitedly, and then talk about the gig afterwards (especially if he’d played one of our favourites). I’ll miss her very much. Rest in peace, Dianne, and thank you for the friendship and the memories. When I see Joe in May, I’ll be thinking of you xxx

 

Caroline Anderson

I didn’t know Dianne but we shared a duo recently. Her book, Bachelor Doc, Unexpected Dad, was lovely. Beautifully crafted, with a very gentle touch, and she obviously had so much more to give, so many more stories to tell. Tragic loss of a great member of our team. I feel privileged to have shared a duo with her. Just wish I’d told her how much I enjoyed it. RIP

 

Amy Ruttan

I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Dianne Drake.

When I was new to Harlequin Medicals and I was gearing up to write my 5th book I was asked by the editorial team to do my first ever duet. I was excited and the author I was assigned to was Dianne Drake.

I was familiar with Dianne’s work because we seemed to be paired up a lot in the UK 2in1’s, so I was pretty excited to get to work with her.

She was so nice and kind. We decided to write about brothers, both who had served, but had drifted apart. That Duet series became the Army Docs duet. That book was one of my favourites, “It Happened in Vegas” and her book was “Tortured by her Touch”.

DiannesBookMyDuetBook

We didn’t work on anything again, which I am saddened by. I always held out hope that we would, but scheduling and deadlines didn’t jive.

However, when my Mom got sick during her chemotherapy for CLL, she ended up paralyzed and hospitalized for about 6 months. The doctors were doing all these awful tests on my Mom and I was just, devastated. We didn’t know what was causing the paralysis, there was no tumor. It was then that Dianne reached out and shared her own story. She gave me some hope in the darkness of all that.

And when my Mom passed, again, she passed on her kindness.

I will always think about Dianne fondly and I cherish our two brothers from our Duet. Rest in peace, Dianne.  Amy Ruttan xo

Bound by their miracle baby

Dr Michi Sato will never forget her passionate night with surgeon Eric Hart—especially as it resulted in her longed-for son. Now his heart condition means Michi must fly to New York for treatment…and tell guarded bachelor Eric he’s a father!

 

 

Chapter One

MICHI SATO LOOKED UP at the massive building, wondering how many stories high it was. She guessed somewhere between twenty-five and thirty, all belonging to Eric and, maybe someday, Riku?

She really hadn’t given Eric’s status much of a thought up until now, and simply seeing his name in gold looming over the massive bank of revolving glass doors caused her stomach to churn. Even as outgoing as she was, she wasn’t up to this. Finding herself so close to Eric now, after all this time, caused too many unanswered questions to come to mind.

Her motivation for that night, his motivation as well. Certainly nothing long term had been meant. They’d both made that clear during pillow talk and foreplay. Then look what had happened. Especially after her doctor had told her only weeks before it was an impossibility. That her condition had gone from bad to abandon all hope.

“I’m so glad he was wrong,” she said, kissing Riku on the cheek. “Mommy hasn’t done everything the best way she could have, but that’s all going to change now.” After Eric knew he had a son. After Riku’s surgery. There were so many things weighing her down now, so much guilt she had to come to terms with, she didn’t know where to begin. But she was here to start a new course. At least, that was what she kept telling herself. New course, new direction, new leaf turned over. It sounded good, but in practice…well, that was the part she wasn’t sure about. But the first step was behind her now, and that was good.

Of course, she’d told herself other things, too, that she’d backed away from, hadn’t she? Namely, not telling Eric he was daddy to her two-year-old. She’d tried, had made futile attempts at calling, texting and using any other means of electronic communication available. Then she’d given up. But that didn’t make things better. In fact, in the long run it would make things worse than she could probably even imagine.

“Mommy’s going to make it all better,” she said. How? She didn’t know. But she’d figure it out.

And now, on the second step of her journey—trying to figure out how to tell him—here she was, looking in Eric’s window, holding his son, and so confused her head was spinning. In just a few days Riku’s long-awaited surgery would take place—a surgery Eric should know about as it had been his specialty when he’d been a practicing surgeon.

Of course, that would have meant telling Eric somewhere along the way that he had a son, then also telling him his son had a heart defect. Neither of which she’d done. Yet. Except the yet part was looming like a black raincloud over her. All the good intentions in the world wouldn’t stop it from bursting and pouring down on her. It was up to her to make the plan that would avoid it—step into a doorway or, in this case, Eric’s office.

But, no. Instead, here she was, like a little girl with her nose to the toy-store window, hoping for the prettiest doll inside. Expecting to get it but fearing she wouldn’t. Expecting Eric to overlook that she’d kept his son from him all this time but fearing he would not forgive her. And in some fragmented way, hoping the three of them could become a family on some level. All while the black cloud was getting closer and closer to bursting.

“Be glad you’re too young to know about responsibilities,” she said to Riku, turning so her body would shield his from the slight gust of warm wind whipping up the streets and down the alleys. “Or how to make something right you’ve already made such a mess of.”

Realistically, she wasn’t counting on things turning out well as far as Eric was concerned. Sure, he could walk away from the entire situation, which didn’t seem at all like the man she’d known for little more than a night. Or he might recognize Riku as his son, then want more of Riku in his life than she was prepared to give him. And that seemed the greater possibility. But would he go so far as try for full custody since she’d hidden his sick child from him for two years? Or argue that she was negligent given how he was an expert in the procedure his son needed to have done?

This was what scared her. And why Eric scared her. He might want more of Riku than she could bear to give up. Now, she feared, she was about to find out just how much, and she wasn’t sure what she’d do once she knew. Wasn’t ready for that, wasn’t ready to face the consequences she’d set into motion, whatever they might be.

Still, she had always to remember this was about Riku, not her. Not even Eric. Right now, her son was the only one who counted, and when she did tell Eric about him, she hoped he would be able to see that was the case. At least until after Riku’s surgery.

“Your daddy’s inside that building, Riku,” she said, turning again so the boy bundled in her arms could look through the window. “He’s a very nice man. And kind. A perfect man to be your father. I know you don’t understand what I’m telling you, but you will someday.”

And she prayed he didn’t hate her when he did understand, even when she’d finally gathered the courage to correct her mistakes long before Riku would be old enough to hate her for what she’d done.

That was another fear she had to live with: the possibility that Riku could turn away from her once he was old enough to know what his mother had done. If that day ever came, well…she wouldn’t think about it. The way she hadn’t thought about other consequences.

So, true to form, she wasn’t going to deal with that now, when she was so confused, so angry at herself, and so afraid for her son’s life. Especially not when every ounce of everything inside her was devoted to Riku and what was ahead for him.

“I wish you could tell me what to do,” she told Riku, snuggling him in even closer to her. “Your mommy didn’t make some wise choices and now she’s very discouraged that what she’s done might touch you in ways I never intended to happen.”

Riku’s response was to reach up and grab Michi’s hair, then giggle.

“Do you know how cute you are?” she asked, trying to extricate herself from his playful grip. This child was her world, nothing else mattered. And it still surprised her how much she’d changed in such a short time. “OK, so you’re not going to answer me. But take my word for it, you’re the cutest little boy ever.”

It was a mild November day, the sun was bright, the slight gusts of wind warm enough that people had taken off their jackets to enjoy the unexpected rise in temperature. But Michi tucked Riku’s little fist into the blanket in which he was wrapped. So maybe she was overprotective. What of it? She’d had so much difficulty bringing him into this world.

She’d lost count of how many times she’d almost lost him before his birth; didn’t know how long she’d been hospitalized to prevent a miscarriage early on and a stillbirth later. It had been such a struggle, then afterwards a beautiful baby boy…with a heart defect. All of it had been so much to deal with, the hysterectomy after Riku’s birth being the least of her concerns. That mess with the social worker calling her unfit had been traumatic. So, if she wanted to be overprotective, she had good cause.

In her defense, she’d tried contacting Eric early on, but the information on him from the seminar had been old, and she’d refused to ask her aunt to forward information on to him as that would have revealed her pregnancy long before she’d wanted to. So, she’d put it off. Had promised herself she’d do it later. But later had brought her pregnancy difficulties, then a sick baby, outside complications…too many “laters” had added up until she’d known she’d passed the point of reasonability. All that, plus she simply hadn’t been coping. One step at a time. That was all she had been able to manage. One difficult, often heartbreaking step at a time.

Still, she had always intended to find Eric at some point, maybe when Riku was through the worst of it. Or maybe when she wasn’t so consumed by guilt and confusion and strange emotions she couldn’t even identify.

Even with all the mistakes she’d made, though, look what she had. The world. Riku was the whole world to her. And now, as she hugged him and stood looking into the Hart building, the urgency to make this right was pounding at her. “He’s in there somewhere,” she said, hoping yet not hoping to catch a glimpse of Eric. “Anyway, it’s silly standing out here, not sure what I’d do if I did see him,” she said to her son. “Besides, look who’s here.”

She twisted so Riku could see his great-aunt walking with outstretched arms to greet them. Riku stretched his arms out to her as well.

“Just what we need,” Agnes Blaine said. “A whole afternoon to spoil my nephew.”

Michi laughed. “Not too much spoiling, I hope.”

Takumi, Agnes’s partner of twenty-five years and Michi’s uncle, stepped to Agnes’s side. “That would be between Riku and us.” He bent over and kissed his nephew. “And maybe the clerk in the toy store.”

Michi loved these people. They’d been there for her at the end of her pregnancy, then through some of Riku’s early tests. And they were part of the small circle of family she’d trusted enough to let them care for Riku for a few hours, or even a full day.

“The amount of spoiling we bestow upon our nephew is a personal matter,” Agnes teased, looking up at the gold embossing over the building: Eric Hart Property Management. “You haven’t…?”

Michi shook her head, then stepped back. Agnes and Takumi knew to leave it alone. Her whole family did. Yes, everybody knew Eric Hart was Riku’s father, but it was not a topic anyone ever discussed. At least, not in front of Michi. “He’s just up from his nap, so he should be good for a while. And I shouldn’t be gone long.” Just long enough to spend some time alone, to think.

“We’ll be back home when you get there,” Takumi said, pulling Michi into his arms. “Be patient with yourself,” he said. “Everything will be as it’s meant to be.”

And, in the blink of an eye, she was alone on the sidewalk in front of Eric’s building. It was the first step. And her second step would take her inside.
