Written by Jacob Fletcher: This book, Where Have You Been?, by Amit Siovitz, tells the story of Johnny Milaowic, an American soldier who was just discharged from Iraq. On the surface, he seems like a normal guy, with the normal desires in life: he wants to get a better car, to ensure that his girlfriend Jenny doesn’t leave him…oh, not to mention, he also wants some heroin. If he goes long enough without this substance, he feels the change; he misses it, and the desire is a constant itch in the back of his head.
But—as things turn out—Johnny’s desire for heroin is only the first of his problems. In reality, things are much worse. For example, he can’t seem to remember things properly, and his mind is fuzzy.

An interview with Carol Margaret Tetlow, author of the books “Out of Practice” & “Faith Hope and Clarity”
Carol Margaret Tetlow is a fairly recently retired family doctor who now has the time to live life to the full, write, play tennis, walk dogs and train donkeys and ponies. Coming from a medical background, it is no surprise that her novels are based in family medicine. But people love medical matters. So, set against a backdrop of everyday life in a medical centre, add in some good characters, personal dilemmas and a soupcon of romance and hopefully…. what’s not to like?
Out of Practice tells the story of one of the doctors and how she has to cope when her professional and personal lives fall apart simultaneously. Faith Hope and Clarity tells the story of another of the doctors, an insecure woman who copes with life’s ups and downs by comfort eating and how she finds out who her real friends are.
