Welcome to my author page.  I'm a board-certified psychiatrist, author, and professional speaker.

I write both fiction and non-fiction, including the Barrett Conyors forensic thriller series as well as books on Alzheimer's and Bipolar Disorder.  My newest series is set in Connecticut and features two female sleuths, who fall in love with one another.  The first--VULTURES AT TWILIGHT (Severn House) will be released in 2012.

In addition to books I've written hundreds of articles, columns, and shorts stories for professional and popular magazines, newspapers, and journals.  I've been a regular contributor to the American Medical Association's American Medical News, a consultant to the Reader's Digest Medical Breakthrough series, and my work has appeared in publications ranging from The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) to Writer's Digest Magazine.  I've been twice featured in the New York Times, as well as many other publications.

 Just Released!

HAFFLING, set in Manhattan, is the story of sixteen year old Alex Nevus, his little sister Alice, and his mentally ill mother, Marilyn.  Alex is a brilliant guy determined to hold his family together against a backdrop of unbearable tragedy.  Years earlier he and his sister were placed in a foster home where Alice was molested, and Alex pushed the man who did it to his death.  He's also haunted by the specter of his own madness.  Ever since he can remember he's had a six-inch bare-breasted fairy named Nimby sitting on his shoulder, that combined with a schizophrenic mother gives him cause for worry.  Further down on the list of things that keep him up at night is his growing crush on the most-perfect boy in his class, who currently goes out with the most-perfect girl.

Since being reunited as a family, Alex has become a master of knowing the rules.  All of which goes to hell when his mother fails to show up for her disability hearing.  When he tracks her down to a park at the northern tip of NYC, his world comes undone as he follows her into a parallel realm.  There, he meets a power-hungry queen who would conquer the world, but requires a suitable vessel to pass between the dimensions.  She needs Alex...or at least parts of him to make that happen.
HAFFLING is available as an ebook through amazon and Barnes and Noble, and as both an ebook and paperback through the publisher--Dreamspinner Press/Harmony Ink (it will eventually be available in paperback through other on-line sellers, as well.)
