"ER meets Homeland in a frenetic Egyptian adventure. Hope Sze turns her medical crimefighting into an international incident. Terrorism, tombs, sarcasm, and sex.”—Dr. Frank Warsh, author of Hippocrates: the Art and the Oath

"Scorpion Scheme is top-notch historical crime fiction with a fabulous kick-ass female protagonist. The kind of book that you just can't put down. Scorpion Scheme is Robin Cook meets D.J. McIntosh's fabulous Mesopotamian trilogy but it delivers a stingingly good tale all on its own steam."—Lisa de Nikolits, author of The Rage Room


Dr. Hope Sze doesn't need a free trip to Egypt.

She can't afford the flight to Cairo, or the cruise down the Nile, so she'd keep studying in Canada-except her fiancé, Dr. John Tucker, yearns to patrol the pyramids and confront the curse on King Tutankhamun's tomb.

So when a company offers them both a free stay in Cairo in exchange for a month's work in an emergency department, Tucker lobbies for a pre-honeymoon in the Valley of Kings and Queens, investigating the windswept temple of Hatshepsut, or scuba diving in the Red Sea.

Instead, within 90 minutes of arrival, Hope drops to her knees outside the Grand Egyptian Museum, desperate to save a now-comatose 87-year-old Johannesburg man who'd raved about Kruger and treasure after receiving a nail through his skull.

Tucker fixates on their one chance at the legendary Kruger Millions, a rumoured fortune that many believe lies secretly stowed somewhere in South Africa.

Since their combined student debt load totals half a million dollars, Tucker can't pass up the possibility of a treasure trove in buried gold.

Hope launches into her first mystery based in a birthplace of human civilization.
Where the evil god Set battled righteous Horus and Isis in an 80-year war.
Where wealth and power clash with political revolution.

Where Antony fell in love with Cleopatra.

Where Hope and Tucker must outwit, or fall prey, to a ruthless criminal mastermind.

Praise for the Hope Sze series

#1 Mystery Selection—CBC Books, on Human Remains. Recommended authors also include Louise Penny and Maureen Jennings

One of the best Canadian suspense books recommended by Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail, on Human Remains
"Smart and sassy."—Jim Napier, Reviewing the Evidence


Terminally Ill: Where magic meets murder
(Hope Sze medical mystery Book 3)


Magic? Dr. Hope Sze steers clear of magic.

But when “Elvis the Escape King” chains and nails himself inside a coffin on the anniversary of Houdini's death, in Montreal’s St. Lawrence River, he can’t break free.

Soon after Hope restarts his heart and saves his life, Elvis demands to know who sabotaged his stunt.

Hope hung up her amateur detective badge to tend to cancer patients on palliative care.

Next, she'll transfer to Ottawa and join her ex-paramour, Ryan. No more unspeakable Montreal drivers and stymied medical care. No more working with the charming yet infuriating Dr. Tucker.
Hope the Escape Artist can afford to act generous. As a parting gift to Montreal, city of festivals and murderers, she'll save Elvis’s sanity as well as his skin.

And so Hope plunges into her most unconventional and most terminal adventure yet.

Where the magical art of escape and the subtle skill of crime vie for centre stage, and the better man may lose. Forever.

"[T]his novel demonstrates familiarity with the conventions of mysteries without being constrained by them and with the realities of Canada's medical world. Although the tone is light, the author is not afraid to introduce darker themes. The three intertwining mysteries and Hope herself provide a narrative by turns entertaining and insightful." —Publishers Weekly

"Narrating in a sprightly style while sharing some of the nitty-gritty of a resident's job, Hope Sze is an utterly likeable character."—Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

In her newest crime novel, SCORPION SCHEME, Dr. Hope Sze lands in Cairo and discovers a man with a nail through his skull who might hold the key to millions in buried gold.

Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership Announces Release of New Educational Video Series

2021 Educational Video Series

PPSPP provides education through outreach events and suicide prevention trainings. The agency’s interventions include clinical and peer support services.

The new video series will enhance our mission to unite the community in addressing suicide in the Pikes Peak Region through education, intervention and prevention.”

— Cassandra Walton, Executive Director

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 / — Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership (PPSPP) in Colorado Springs, CO has announced the release of a series of nine new videos, which are educational in nature and cover the challenging topics of youth suicide, gun safety, suicide in the military (active duty or veteran), another that features PPSPP programs and one that discusses COVID’s effect on the agency’s mission, among other topics. The video series can be viewed at this link. Click here.

The Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership (PPSPP) has been serving individuals and families since 1993. Founded by local women with personal reasons for bringing the issue of suicide into the public eye, PPSPP began as a crisis line center for suicide prevention and is now a resource center where clients are connected to referral services and a peer support program. They also operate a 24/7 peer support program to provide intervention, especially overnight, so ‘nobody has to sit in the darkness alone’.

“The new video series will enhance our mission to unite the community in addressing suicide in the Pikes Peak Region through education, intervention and postvention,” said Cassandra Walton, Executive Director, “Suicide is a perceived solution to an overwhelming problem. PPSPP provides outreach and awareness events, suicide prevention trainings, support groups and individual counseling. All services are provided at no cost.”

Walton has been working with PPSPP for just over a year and became involved after a loss of a close family friend. “A string of youth suicides rocked the Colorado Springs in 2016-2017,” Walton said. “Various community initiatives started up in response to those losses and PPSPP was contracted by the El Paso County Health Department to complete a research project called the, “Teen Think Tanks.” We interviewed hundreds of teens about what they thought suicide prevention in schools should look like. I then felt compelled to help make some of their ideas a reality,” she explained.

Walton feels that it’s important for the community to see the video series because “one of our strongest arms of prevention is an informed public. We need people to be exposed to the concept of suicide prevention. The more people who know, the more lives we can save – especially when it comes to underserved groups like men and our community’s military personnel. We want people in need to make sure that they are getting help – whatever that may be.”

PPSPP provides education through outreach events and suicide prevention trainings. The agency’s interventions include clinical and peer support services. For postvention they provide immediate support to individuals, families and organizations impacted by a suicide loss through communication, crisis and bereavement support and peer support services.

In one of the feature videos, Walton talks about how COVID-19 has affected teen suicide. “Youth suicide is a hot topic in our community since the pandemic hit. PPSPP has worked to proactively address topics like isolation and pandemic fatigue,” said Walton. “We understand that many parents have been stressed out and teens feel like they don’t want to be an added burden to the household. We have to remember that many who are struggling are not in a place to reach out and so we must get creative and be tenacious about “reaching in” to them.”

A male client shared that having access to free services was hugely important. He stated that “people need to start talking about mental illness and suicide. Men need to get over the stigma and believe that it’s OK to reach out for help.” PPSPP’s partnership with NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) classes and M.A.N. Up (Mental Accountability Network), started by a PPSPP volunteer inspired by their experience with the agency, have been crucially important. “If I had succeeded in my suicide attempt, I would have missed out on so many things. Finding a safe space to share my struggles has literally saved my life. I have been able to get all of that stuff out and people don’t judge me when I do it; I can tell I am a healthier person.”

P&A President Michael Perini said, “The firm is honored and grateful that PPSPP placed their trust in our video services to help their organization spread the word about suicide prevention efforts as well as encourage more individuals to find the professional help they need.”

Walton stated that the hardest part of her job is getting the call or waking up to a news story about another loss to suicide. “I force myself to find out the details of these losses, so I can learn what service or resource could have made the difference for that person,” she said. “Suicide prevention is a complex issue with a lot of moving parts. It is important that making these videos available, either through us or through connections with community partners, shows that help, and hope, are always nearby.”

IntuitiveX Proves Success of Early Stage Life Sciences Commercialization Model

IntuitiveX, a premier life sciences consulting firm and incubator, demonstrates success of its differentiated model for commercializing early stage startups.

SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 / — IntuitiveX, a premier life sciences consulting firm and incubator demonstrates the success of its differentiated model for commercializing early stage life sciences companies and has the results to prove it.

After recognizing pain points unique to the life sciences, serial entrepreneur, investor, and physician Dr. Jeffrey Roh, CEO of IntuitiveX, discovered a proprietary methodology and model for catalyzing life sciences startups which has become the cornerstone of IntuitiveX. The methodology and model offer a way to assess the current and future growth potential of early stage life sciences startups while providing a one-stop shop approach to solving these unique growth challenges via consultancy and incubation.

“After repeatedly going through the life sciences maze of innovation as investors, entrepreneurs, and innovators, IntuitiveX has been able to better understand how to efficiently navigate through the complexities of early stage life sciences commercialization. We’ve observed that the more we repeat the maze of testing and validating the model with our clients, the more we iterate on our approach, and the more long-term value we create.” said Dr. Jeffrey Roh, CEO of IntuitiveX.

Since its inception, IntuitiveX has generated millions in value for its investors, portfolio companies, and shareholders and has realized noteworthy portfolio company successes. To name a few, recently AltPep, a Seattle-based biotech startup tackling amyloid protein disorders including Alzheimer’s Disease, raised $23M in series A financing. CarlsMed, leveraging machine learning technologies and prior outcomes data to personalize the treatment for complex adult spinal deformities, has raised $12.6M in funding and recently was granted breakthrough device designation by the FDA. NavLab, a medical IP holding company, generated an IRR of 181% and has a history of creating and selling novel medical device IP assets within the surgical robotics & AI/ML space. Amplify Surgical, developer of a dual expanding interbody fusion system, has surpassed more than 800+ surgical cases and Auctus Surgical, developer of technologies focused on non-fusion scoliosis correction, recently was awarded Best Technology In Spine by OrthopedicThisWeek, a prestigious orthopedic publication. In aggregate, IntuitiveX’s overall portfolio company growth has been staggering, not including the value it has provided for its service clients.

Within a few years, IntuitiveX has been assisting life sciences companies in the following ways: fast-tracking & co-inventing new IP, supporting international commercialization within the U.S., scaling portfolio companies by oversubscribing on seed and Series A rounds across digital health, medtech, pharma, & biotech, opening access into a pipeline of early-stage companies, spearheading FDA servicing, IP commercialization, IP acquisition, business development, joint venture development, mergers, and staffing, and hosting exclusive life sciences events.

“We see great ideas and products ultimately fall short of success because they either do not fully prepare for commercial challenges ahead or they approach hurdles to commercialization in a piecemeal manner. Lack of coordination and integration (e.g. regulatory approval fragmented from IP, product validation devoid of clinical and strategic KOL buy-in, etc.) leads to inefficiencies, gaps, and delays in successful commercialization.” Amy Chen, VP of Client Services.

The IntuitiveX approach assesses key success factors when building a roadmap to commercialization. These vital ingredients are aggregated from their collective experience in launching life science endeavors and prioritized in a balanced approach to business, intellectual property (IP), clinical, and scientific aspects of a strong and de-risked startup company. Utilizing a closed incubation model and a one-stop shop consultancy model, startups are able to get holistic support in the validation, strategy, and execution needed to bring life sciences products to market.

About IntuitiveX
IntuitiveX is a premier life science consulting firm and incubator based in Seattle, Washington that specializes in growing early-stage life science startups and supporting international companies seeking commercialization within the U.S. across medical devices, biotech, Pharma, and digital health. With a team of life science entrepreneurs, physicians, investors, and innovators, we bring a combined 100+ years of experience supporting startups from ideation to commercialization.

Anna Khachatrian of CodeRiders On How To Use Digital Transformation To Take Your Company To The Next Level

Anna Khachatrian of CodeRiders was interviewed by Authority Magazine

Anna Khachatrian of CodeRiders was interviewed by Authority Magazine

CodeRiders Software Outsourcing company at EASA with the award of Best Software Vendor

CodeRiders software development house at EuroAsian Startup Awards (EASA)

Armenian tech company outsourcing worldwide

CodeRiders is a team of talented professional software developers

CodeRiders' Business Development Executive, Anna Khachatrian was interviewed by Jason Hartman, an author on Authority Magazine.

We desire, together we achieve.”

— CodeRiders

YEREVAN, ARMENIA, March 1, 2021 / — CodeRiders' Business Development Executive, Anna Khachatrian was interviewed by Jason Hartman, an author on Authority Magazine.

The main challenge of digital transformation comes when some companies are not familiar with tech innovations and the digitization process. They usually do not have IT departments or appropriate in-house professionals who can deal with IT stuff. The lack of technical persons in a company makes the communication process of the digital provider and the client a little bit difficult. Of course, this does not relate to each and every organization. But usually non-technical people need more time to get used to digitization, to learn more about its details, analyze whether that is something vital for their company or not. It’s faster and easier with technical people as being in the hub of the tech environment they always notice how the lack of digital solutions can impact the business in this or that way.

As part of our series about “How To Use Digital Transformation To Take Your Company To The Next Level”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Anna Khachatrian.Anna Khachatrian is Business Development Executive at CodeRiders software development company. She is a digital marketing expert with 5+ years’ experience in business development, partnerships, client communications, and lead generation. Anna took part in several events as a speaker — both local and international, and one of her recent speeches was about professional women in a digitized economy during a conference by Women Impact Network (WIN). She also gave interviews to several media and event organizers, as well as writes articles for international media (like Clutch, The Entrepreneur), CodeRiders blog and her own blog on Medium.

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series. Before we dive in, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your ‘backstory’ and how you got started?

My educational background is different from what I do right now. I started it all with linguistics and journalism classes and ended up in IT sphere. I have been working since my university years as a journalist, English tutor, translator, PR specialist, but now I can confirm I shaped my career path when I entered the Information Technologies industry 5 years ago. Working on tech innovations in the IT sphere is what makes me feel comfortable. I started exploring the world of digital, and this is when I understood what my career destination is going to look like. Since then I have been studying and learning new things in this industry every other day. Each day brings new skills and new opportunities for me because the base of my job is digital and we encounter constant innovations in the virtual world. I find this very exciting and motivating to move forward.

Today my work at CodeRiders is mostly about digital and digitalization. My work sphere is digital marketing in tech and innovation. I am the main communicator between CodeRiders and its clients who want to digitize their businesses. I am leading the company’s campaigns implementing both Inbound and Outbound marketing methodologies. Helping businesses to meet their desired digital solutions is what makes me happy. I plan long-term and short-term strategies for business growth, present CodeRiders and its services during business meetings and events. Besides these, my everyday work includes conducting SEO and SMM campaigns and branding the company in the market. Today the way I showcase my skills in the digital world makes both me and our clients satisfied.
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lessons or ‘take aways’ you learned from that?

I receive this question a lot, and every time I look back to find an example. Surely there will be examples of failure but the human brain is constructed in a way that you always remember the good things and success stories you have rather than the failures. In my case, the thing that I am looking for an answer to this question for too long is also because I have shaped my mindset in a way that even if I make mistakes I always try to find the good thing in it and the lesson I’ve learned. That’s why I am keen on remembering the positive sides than the failures.

However, after recalling the past experiences of mine, I think I have one story to share with you. A few years ago I was offered to join a technical team as a project manager and to conduct the whole development process. I had no previous experience in project management, but because I was successfully conducting communication with our clients and I have been in the IT industry for a few years, I felt quite confident I will be able to conduct the team of developers as well. As you can guess, the project was not one of the smooth and easy ones. I ended up with a lot of stressful days, tough times, and a bunch of lessons I have learned from this story. To make a long story short, after all the client ended up with so much satisfaction that they still keep in touch with us and are going to set up another development project with us in the near future. My mistake was to take up something I wasn’t fully aware of and to struggle to end it up successfully while I was learning in between. If I were given that offer now, I would, first of all, get some basic (if not in-depth) knowledge and the most important tips about project management before diving into the project. This is an ideal solution to provide a quality service without additional stress and energy loss, and this relates to anything.

Fighting prostate cancer in the Mississippi Delta, one man at a time

Men’s Health Network

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 / — In the impoverished communities of the Mississippi Delta, where prostate cancer death rates are more than 28 men per 100,000, residents were leery about the concept of research. Delta residents were deeply concerned about exploitation and feared that participating in cancer research would make them guinea pigs.

So Freddie White-Johnson created a community cancer outreach movement, and she did it almost by herself. White-Johnson founded the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation in 2005. The foundation uses private and public funding to support cancer awareness and prevention activities, most run by volunteers from the Mississippi Network for Cancer Control and Prevention (MNCCP), based at the University of Southern Mississippi. White-Johnson is now the MNCCP’s program director. Read more about MNCCP’s work at

Mississippi already ranks fifth in the nation for prostate cancer deaths and fourth in breast cancer deaths. The nine counties of the Mississippi Delta have breast and prostate cancer deaths higher than Mississippi’s averages. Nationally, the death rate for prostate cancer is 19 per 100,000, compared with the Delta’s rate of 28 men per 100,000.

Although conditions have improved in the past 50 years, the Delta remains one of the most deprived regions in the U.S. The national poverty rate is about 11.7 percent; it's 15.7 percent for Mississippi. In most Delta counties, it's 30 to 40 percent.

While problems at the notorious “Sugar Ditch” in Tunica, Miss., improved after visits from national leaders in the mid-‘80s, the Delta remains one of the most deprived regions in the U.S.
The Delta communities have other social problems as well – high rates of teen pregnancy and incarceration. Many people lack sufficient food and clothing, and some residents have no indoor plumbing.

White-Johnson knew she had an uphill slog to teach people in the Delta about cancer prevention. But she also knew it was critical work. The new prostate cancer case rate in black or African-American men in Mississippi is almost twice as high as the new case rate in black or African-American men nationally.
With co-leader Carol Connell, Ph.D., RD, a professor at the University of Southern Mississippi, White-Johnson used an engagement award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to develop a training curriculum for community health advisors. The curriculum was designed to counter community fears. Read more about the project at

Under White-Johnson’s and Connell’s leadership, MNCCP has trained more than a thousand community health advisors, selected from people who already make a difference in their communities. The advisors teach community members about breast and prostate cancer, including warning signs, symptoms, and the importance of screening.

The advisors meet their neighbors wherever they are – in churches and shopping areas, and in rec centers and fire stations. They provide food and activities to occupy children so parents can learn. The advisors also host health fairs, pass out literature and recruit people for screenings. Afterwards, advisors follow up with those who have not yet been screened.

Community advisors on White-Johnson’s team also take more direct action to assist those already living with cancer. They provide transportation to medical appointments and help patients determine questions to discuss with doctors. They also provide for some patients’ most basic needs, including food, heat, clothing, and training in proper hygiene.
Sammy Foster is one of those community advisors.

His team’s members interact with African-American men at health fairs, give talks at various venues, and follow up with attendees so they can get screened.

“The men don’t believe in going to the doctor even for a regular checkup,” Foster says. “The worst thing is that people aren’t knowledgeable about health and cancer. They are afraid to have a simple prostate exam because they don’t realize the importance of preventive health.”

White-Johnson understands the people she’s reaching out to. She grew up poor, the child of parents who never completed high school, on a cotton-and-soybean farm. When she was 17, her father was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. No one in her family had heard of cancer, and the family had no health insurance.

“He was treating … cancer with Epsom salts and warm water and gargling,” White-Johnson says. Her mother finally insisted that her father see the doctor when his pain became unbearable. She says that her father’s deathbed advice to her to “go to school and get an education, and then come back and help the people like us” inspired her. She earned a degree in public policy and administration at USM and approached the university about launching the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation.

Initial interest was high, but no one wanted to lead the foundation, so White-Johnson took on the work herself. The university chose to independently continue the network, changing its name, when some of the early funding ended. White-Johnson continued the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation, and it supports the USM’s network with supplemental funding.

It will be many years before White-Johnson can consider her work completed.

“There are so many people still out there in Mississippi who don’t have any direct support or health resources,” White-Johnson says. “There are men who don’t even know what a prostate is. There’s so much work that still needs to be done.”
