Summary

Stephen "Kelly" Grayson has seen the best of us at our worst. When hearts stop working, when blood alcohol levels exceed limits we shouldn't contemplate, when bodies are extricated from car wrecks, he's been there to pick up the pieces, save our lives, and watch us slip away. His touching stories of life and death and the hilarious ones of times in between are here to give us an insight of what happens after we call 911, the ambulance doors close, or even what happens inside the ER when the nurse shows the family to the waiting room.

Author Biography

Seasoned paramedic Kelly Grayson has seen it all during his career while keeping his sense of humor intact and preserving a deep respect for the people served. From the lighthearted and hilarious to the truly heart-wrenching, En Route is the story of a man who holds lives in his hands every day.
