This woman, Heather, reads more books in a month than I could stuff in my trunk. She's truly mind-boggling. If you want to know about a book, she's probably read - and thoroughly reviewed - it on her blog, "Age 30+...- A Lifetime of Books." Today she posted a review of my own novel,...

What if the "delusions" reported by patients during psychotic episodes were not symptoms of a disease, but valid descriptions of their experiences? Laing describes schizophrenia as a kind of journey into the inner self, one that is misunderstood by people in the "normal" world...

I like to use this blog to direct you to interesting web sites, even if I choose my own.  Today I’d like to introduce you to a fan named Ron Stutler. I met Ron in a mall bookstore when I signed a copy of "Collateral Damage" for him.  Recently he wrote to tell me that he read the book...
