Number 02: Allergy Harry Colfer

  • Jono should’ve known better than to try and get some shut-eye on an arvo shift. He’s dragged back to reality for a job at the nearby shopping mall and has the unusual experience of being the more tactful crewmate. After all, diplomacy is always needed when there’s a doctor on scene…

Number 13: Diabetic Problem Harry Colfer

  • After getting in trouble for delivering a soiled patient to the Royal, Jono can’t resist the offer of an eight-shot coffee from his latest barista. But he soon regrets his choice of beverage as he and his crewmate, Jan, are dispatched on a Code 2 welfare check in Alderley. Stuck in traffic while hyped on caffeine is never a good combination and his need for action leads to some questionable decisions when he arrives on scene.

Number 15: Electrocution Harry Colfer

  • Jono is working with a new crewmate, Mike, who turns out to be eye candy for his female colleagues. Despite being an age away, they're dispatched to backup a crew on Bribie Island, but that distance is nothing compared to their final destination. And all this driving is just as the heavens rip open with a violent thunderstorm…
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 12: Convulsions Harry Colfer

  • When Jono’s given the runaround by Comms his crewmate, Gerry Seabrook, doesn’t care; he’s on the big bucks doing an overtime shift. When they finally make it to a job they’re backing up a crew whose patient is having repeated seizures. It seems a simple case of treat and transport, so what could possibly go wrong?
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 08: Carbon Monoxide Harry Colfer

  • Jono tries to shake off a headache caused by his crewmate, Maxine Radcliffe. She’s a very keen, but often incapable student who he’s certain could talk under wet cement. Twelve hours is a very long shift when you not only have to work, but also teach your offsider. And the day started off so well…
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 16: Eye Problem Harry Colfer

  • After a simple ‘lift assist’, Jono and his crewmate Sophie attempt to sneak in a feed before their next job. But while his chicken is cooking the pagers go off and Jono’s forced to go without. Perhaps he should have taken Sophie’s advice and opted for sushi…

Number 04: Assault Harry Colfer

  • Fighting their way through rush-hour traffic gives Jono and his young crewmate, Kylie Cook, plenty of time to engage in banter. Due to the nature of the callout, Kylie discovers Jono's never been assaulted. He puts it down to his ability to read a scene, but will his Spidey senses be enough to protect him this time?
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 06: Breathing Problem Harry Colfer

  • Jono takes Sam for a rejuvenating coffee after his crewmate suffers at the hands of a particularly nasty triage nurse. But their hopes of travelling under the radar are dashed when a crew requests ICP backup along with the bariatric ambulance, a combination that never bodes well…
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 23: Overdose Harry Colfer

  • A sudden rainstorm does little to cool the heat on a sweltering day in Brisbane as Jono and Scotty hurtle their way to an unconscious female in an apartment block. But soon they discover that an unhelpful manager and numerous stairs are the least of their worries when they finally enter the flat and find their patient...
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 03: Animal Bite Harry Colfer

  • This shift Jono is working with Bree McLoughlin, a fiery Irish redhead with a sarcastic nature that rivals his own. The cab-based banter is running thick and fast when they get dispatched to a child who’s been bitten by a snake. It’s only at this point that Jono discovers his fearsome crewmate, “Hates feckin’ snakes!”
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 29: Traffic Accident Harry Colfer

  • It’s been a non-stop Friday night shift when Jono leaves a patient at home who should have known better than to call an ambulance. But as he and his crewmate, Laura, try to sneak back to station under the radar, their ambulance is pinged for a nearby Road Traffic Collision. Jono thinks his only issue is trying to wake himself up, when a request from Comms adds to his woes...

Number 24: Pregnancy Harry Colfer

  • Jono’s enjoying a Code 1 drive through rush hour traffic when his crewmate, Nat, has a go at him for taking too many risks. After all, she’s not only got her own life to worry about, but also that of her unborn child. However, once they arrive, their patient appears to be more focused on a rash she has on her back than the miscarriage she called an ambulance for. Can Jono withhold his anger when faced with yet another pointless callout?
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 09: Cardiac Arrest Harry Colfer

  • Jono finds himself assigned to a Royal Flying Doctor Service pickup from the airport that turns out to be just another taxi job. Rather than getting frustrated, he takes his girlfriend’s advice and puts his brain into park, just as another crew calls for assistance...
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 17: Fall Harry Colfer

  • Jono bumps into an old mentor, Slim, who works on one of the high acuity rapid response vehicles. It’s a role that Jono aspires to, but he’s yet to attain more than a few sporadic shifts. As Jan points out, perhaps all he needs is a personality transplant. While she leaves Jono to contemplate the positives of his job, they’re dispatched to yet another patient who’s fallen over. But does this latest case truly belong within the ‘lot of crap’ category?
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 05: Back Pain Harry Colfer

  • Jono is assigned a new crewmate, Connor King, who’s been transferred to the station due to undisclosed ‘issues’. His character flaws become blatantly obvious within the first few minutes of meeting him and Jono is left wondering how he'll survive the rest of the shift.

Number 21: Haemorrhage Harry Colfer

  • It’s just gone 1:00 AM in the write-up room of the Royal when Jono is dispatched to a man who’s cut his hand punching a wall. His crewmate, Jan Reid, is happy to switch into autopilot for a low-acuity case, but Jono yearns for something more interesting to stave off his tiredness. In his line of work, he should know better than to wish for a wake-up call...

Number 31: Unconscious Harry Colfer

  • Ed and Jono bicker over breakfast, while they wait their turn for the next job. But to their dismay, their ambulance jumps the queue when a crew needs an ICP to help sedate a half-naked patient who’s no longer unconscious.

Number 10: Chest Pain Harry Colfer

  • Tired after a long run of shifts, Jono is less than enthusiastic when dispatched to another low-acuity job. But he suddenly comes alive when they are diverted to a nearby crew who require an ICP backup, not least because of Scotty's manic driving.
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 01: Abdominal Pain Harry Colfer

  • After starting the shift with a patient who had nothing more serious than a broken little toe, Scotty assures Jono that the day can only get better. That is, until they get dispatched to Carseldine Meadows, the caravan site from hell.
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 11: Choking Harry Colfer

  • Dispatched on a long-distance lights-and-sirens drive to a potentially life-threatening emergency, Jono and Scotty start to suspect that all may not be as it seems. Especially when no updates come from the scene.
  • Harry Colfer Books

Number 32: Unknown Problem Harry Colfer

  • On a slow night, Jono and Ed are sent to a patient who has refused to provide any information to the call takers. Is this just another request for a blue-light taxi, or has something more serious befell the caller?

Dead Regular (eBook) Harry Colfer

  • Catching a serial killer won’t be easy when nobody suspects murder…

    One thing is stopping Jono from loving his job as a paramedic. It’s not the blood and gore, nor the vomiting drunks, not even the seemingly endless rolling shifts. It’s the overbearing management. He’s a competent clinician who always does the best for his patients, but petty bureaucracy and red tape never fail to fire him up. Despite this disaffection, Jono won’t ignore the fact that several ambulance ‘regulars’ have been turning up dead. Each death in itself seems innocent enough, but the sudden mounting body count raises his suspicions. Is it just a coincidence, or has someone decided to clean up the city? What’s more worrying is that Jono appears to be the only one who cares.

Number 25: Psychiatric Harry Colfer

  • Despite his reluctance to do any more nightshifts, Jono turns up for work only to find he's been sent to cover the city's central business district. And what's more, it's a weekend. Dreading a night of drunks and psych patients, he’s picked up by a mate of his, Gerry Seabrook, and together they are dispatched to deal with a patient threatening suicide... Word Count: 4,361
