Alan B Hollingsworth, David E Reese
Disclosure: Alan B Hollingsworth, MD, is a consultant for Provista Diagnostics, Inc. Correspondence: Alan B Hollingsworth, MD, Mercy Women's Center, 4300 McAuley Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73120, US (E: firstname.lastname@example.org).
The characters have been embellished a little, Mr. Hollingsworth said.
Especially Peachy. "He's identifiable to people who know him, the belief system, attitude and dialogue are the same as (movie character) Fletch," Hollingsworth said. "He was the clown and the wild man growing up." Flatbellies is a name given to the young golfers by a group of middle-age duffers who played at the same country club - La Viento Golf and Country Club in the book. "They resented us because we beat them," said Hollingsworth, who is Kyle "Chipper" DeHart in the book - a nod to his proficiency around the green. Hollingsworth spent four years writing the book, another year revising and cutting more than 50 pages out of it, then was rejected - sight unseen, he said - by 47 publishing companies. Once Hollingsworth found Sleeping Bear Press, he sent copies of the manuscript to his friends. Overall the story is fiction, but many of the little individual vignettes really did happen, Hollingsworth said. For example, the Lettermans' club initiation has a full chapter in the book. "You had to box," he said. "We were golfers boxing to get our letters. We all had to box somebody." The book is the first work of fiction by Hollingsworth, who is the director of the Women's Center at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City. In August , he released The Truth About Breast Cancer Risk Assessment - a more clinical effort - as Alan B. Hollingsworth, M.D. For Flatbellies he left off the M.D. "We figured people may think it was an exercise book," he said. "Jay says to Chipper," Hollingsworth said, "If you do become a writer would you put us all in a book one day?"'

Alan B. Hollingsworth, M.D.
Alan B. Hollingsworth, M.D. serves as Medical Director of Breast MRI of Oklahoma, LLC, in addition to being medical director of Mercy Women's Center and Mercy Cancer Resource Center. He is also the coordinator of the weekly Interdisciplinary Pre-Treatment Breast Conference at Mercy Health Center. As one of the country's first experts in breast cancer risk assessment, he has authored a text on the subject and, in April 2006, became the first non-radiologist to present breast MRI data in a national forum when he spoke to the general assembly of the American Society of Breast Disease on the "Utilization of Breast MRI Screening for High-risk Women.
Dr. Alan Hollingsworth, research director of Mercy Women's Center, finds himself wedged in a conversation with Nobel laureate James Watson, PhD, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA (left) and Mark Skolnick, PhD (right), the scientist who led the team that won the race to identify and sequence the BRCA-1 gene on chromosome 17.
With the foresight to realize that research for a screening blood test will be more accurate when compared to breast MRI rather than mammography, Dr. Hollingsworth has now accumulated thousands of specimens, representing the largest such research reservoir in the country where serum samples are tied to MRI results. Thus, multiple biotech companies working on this agenda, as well as the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, have collaborated with Dr. Hollingsworth.
