Editor and author of five books and numerous articles, including the EMS Pearls of Wisdom Series of exam preparation texts published by Jones and Bartlett, Haskell has worked to bridge the theories of academic emergency medicine and the practice of EMS, the world of the trauma center and the realities of the street.

He holds the PhD and JD from Indiana University, and served on the faculties of Oberlin College, Emory University, and the George Washington University Medical School. He is a paramedic at Indianapolis EMS, has his own law practice, and serves as a firefighter with Benton Township Volunteer Fire Department.
