how to live forever color cover




My story started in Detroit. After an early exit from high school, I apprenticed in a bronze-casting foundry before moving on to a GED, an undergrad philosophy degree at Wayne State University and a medical degree at the same. Then came a family practice residency in Colorado, an alternative practice in Boulder, and a fellowship at UCLA. My partner lured me to her beloved NYC, where we had the second of three great kids, I taught for a few years, and was board certified in Preventive Medicine before dragging her back to this near-fictional isle in the great literal West.

I'm currently working half-time as a family doc, making it the world's best day job, a solid dose of life and patient care that, when the stars align and in the absence of emergencies, leaves time to write and teach.

Aside from a few published studies, I began my writing career with the Zen of Science column for Nexus, covering topics from sex to homeopathy, yoga, massage, meditation, acupuncture, social connectedness, and the psychology of cancer survival. A decade ago I fell into fiction and have been addicted since. This led to the novels Resonance, Thrilling Romance (re-edited and published in 2014), The Mortalist (2008), a handful of short stories, and in 2012, How To Live Forever.
