Zeta Pi Chapter #158
After a successful international nursing career, bridging service and academe, Triolo career shifted, channeling her mission of improving the image of nursing with her passion for writing mysteries. The medical mystery series, featuring a Latina RN protagonist with a multicultural team, was born with Death Without Cause (2013) and The Impostor: A Medical Mystery (Wyatt-MacKenzie, Inc., 2014). The characters face contemporary clinical, workplace, and life issues packaged in a mystery. The books, designed to engage, teach and entertain, are highly recommended reads for libraries, student nurses and high school students considering health science. They are well regarded in the public domain. Foreword Reviews reported, “Triolo’s second novel about nurses could easily be ripped from the headlines.” Suzanne Gordon said, "Anyone in nursing ... will not have to read far, before experiencing a shudder of recognition: this fictional tale is rooted in workplace reality that can be no less scary."
