Support Evelina London at a book signing event
You can now support Evelina London by purchasing a copy of The Warriors of Genesis, by former hospital registrar Dr Adrian Li, at WHSmith in St Thomas’ Hospital.
Adrian balances life as both a doctor and an author but has found a way to combine both his passions. His fantasy books have a health message and he is generously donating all his royalties from sales of the novel (online, kindle, in-store) to Evelina London.
Join Adrian at his book signing event
Adrian will be holding a book signing event on Tuesday 10 January at WHSmith St Thomas’ Hospital branch from 12.30 – 3pm. Find out more about Adrian and how inspiration for his novel stemmed from his time as a medical student when he encountered a young mum who had lost her son to alcohol poisoning.
"The book centres round a classic battle between good and evil, heaven and hell. Three sins are wreaking havoc on Earth and plan to destroy heaven; they do this by controlling humans through alcoholism.
I've weaved a positive health message into the book but it's still very much a fantasy novel. I just thought that if I can warn one young person about the dangers of excessive alcohol consumption then I'll be happy.
I learned a lot in my time as a doctor on Mountain Ward. Evelina London is a very special place and I'm proud to continue to support the amazing work that they do."
You can also show your support by purchasing a signed copy of the book, as all proceeds from the book signing event will also go to Evelina London.
About the book
Pennhi is a warrior of Genesis who was harshly banished from Heaven by the corrupt ruler Khrelis. The three Sins were once defeated by the warriors but their powers are rising once more. They are wreaking havoc on Earth and plan to destroy Heaven with their ferocious, ever-expanding army. Pennhi’s last hope in protecting humanity is to reunite the warriors of Genesis. With the help of a young man named Ken Jin, she must be prepared to do anything in order to persuade Khrelis to heed her warnings before the three dimensions are consumed by eternal darkness. More details available from Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers.
Adrian Li was born in Greenwich in 1988. He was brought up working in a Chinese takeaway but the family business was sold when he graduated from medical school. He continues to work as a doctor whilst simultaneously fulfilling his passion for writing. Adrian also enjoys playing the piano and is a keen football player.
Adrian has previously raised funds for Evelina London through organising a special fundraising concert in May 2014, held in the Atrium. The music performed spanned genres and ages from symphonies by Mozart to pop songs by Sia.
