She specialized in pediatrics and medical genetics. A prolific medical writer, she had published numerous articles in premier peer-reviewed medical journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet. Since retirement, she develops a love for writing fictional children's stories and any other stories blessed, inspired, moved and motivated by the HOLY SPIRIT for her to put pen to paper, inventing unique children's games, and creating novel art and craft. Reece is a devout Christian. Her hobbies include intensive bible study, training to be a marathoner and cooking/experimenting with different varieties of hummus and fresh frozen yoghurt. Whatever she does, she wants to be a trail-blazer. Reece won the USA Mom's Choice Awards for The Firefly Story (under the name of Nicola C. Ho, M.D.) and Reece's Timeless Tales (N. Reece Ho, M.D.).
If you are of a certain generation, you may remember reading, or having read to you, the original Grimm's Fairy tales. This collection of stories took me back to those childhood days. They are a little bit dark; somewhat unusual in their content, but very readable. I found the endings of some of them unsatisfactory, and I question how appropriate it is for a nine year old to read about a premature birth, in quite a bit of detail. Some of the stories have an Aesop's Fables slant to them, they certainly have a message to deliver, and I personally felt uncomfortable reading the Christian based tales, but that's just me. What I really liked was the dictionary at the end of each story which explains some of the more unusual, less common words. Each story is aimed at a particular age group, from age 9 to age 12, but that of course is just a rough guide. Each story is just long enough for a child to read at bedtime, and the collection provides a range of stories from different genres and cultures. An interesting change from some of the more generic short stories on offer today.
