W. D. McComb graduated with a degree in chemical engineering from Mississippi State University before deciding that a career in medicine was his true calling. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Mississippi, then earned board certifications in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics as well as a specialist certification in wound care. He has been practicing medicine for the past fifteen years in northeast Mississippi, where he lives with his wife and three children. When he’s not treating patients or writing, he can often be found on the sideline with the local high school football team, roaming the woods of the Buttahatchie River bottom, or tossing batting practice to his kids. The Truth That Lies Between is his first novel.
