With more than a decade of healthcare experience, Felton said she plans to show the dark reality the virus brought to many.

“I did some journaling last year, so the book is going to be more about what I experienced as an ICU nurse during the pandemic, the challenges that we face as a nurse, I’ve also spoke about things that family went through,” Felton said.

Felton released the amazon best seller in late April, and it can be purchased online or at 2nd and Charles bookstore.
