Jules M. Seletz graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1953 as a second lieutenant, and the Chicago Medical School in 1958 with an MD. Following five years of post-graduate training at the Boston City Hospital, he practiced as a General and Peripheral Vascular Surgeon for 35 years.
He enjoyed a 41-year military career in the United States Army, with a 15-year civilian break in service, rising to the rank of full colonel, after starting out as a second lieutenant in 1953 in the field artillery during the Korean conflict. He deployed in 1985 as a military surgeon to Morocco in North Africa, in 1987 to West Germany, in 1989 to Botswana in Sub-Sahara Africa and finally, in 1991, to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait in Southwest Asia during Desert Storm. Retired from the Army in 1994 while stationed at West Point, Dr. Seletz served for the next seven years as a physician surveyor for JCAHO¾the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
JCAHO is the nationally and internationally accepted accrediting body for the healthcare industry. During those seven years, Dr. Seletz had several occasions to survey hospitals that have experienced untoward incidents, mishaps and catastrophic outcomes known as sentinel events.
Dr. Seletz is a part-time resident of Marblehead, Massachusetts, but lives and writes in Lincoln, New Hampshire, in the heart of the White Mountains where he enjoys skiing and mountain hiking with his wife of Acadian heritage. Together, they have seven children and twelve grandchildren. In addition to Sentinel Event on the High Seas he has also written four other mystery/medical thriller novels that involve sentinel events: Sentinel Event; Not Another Sentinel Event; Code Pink, A Sentinel Event and West Point’s Sentinel Event. He is also the author of a Quartet of historical fiction, Pass In Review, that mirrors his own life during the twentieth century that begins with his father's emigration from Russia at the turn of the last century and ends with the publication of his novels at the beginning of this century. Pass In Review includes Book One, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Book Two, Jacob’s Ladder; Book Three, Jacob’s Travels; and Book Four, Jacob’s Novels. Pulp, Potatoes, and Ployes is a novel he wrote depicting an Acadian Odyssey and the formation of his wife’s birthplace, Fort Kent, Maine,
When residents of Lincoln, New Hampshire, learned that Dr. Seletz had written a novel that describes the establishment of Fort Kent, Maine, in Pulp, Potatoes, and Ployes, they asked, “Why not one about the creation of Lincoln, New Hampshire?” Early into researching the history of the area, he discovered the formation of this mill town back in 1892 when railroad logging was widely used to be utterly fascinating. So another book of historical fiction describing this with a background of United States history, was born, entitled Lincoln Logs.
