Finally the so long expected time has come. My book Escaping Psychiatry has seen the light. As you know I’m a forensic psychiatrist by day and a writer any spare time I can find, and although this book is not about my personal experiences (thankfully. You’ll see what I mean when you read it), the main character, Mary, is a psychiatrist and writer, like me. It is a work of fiction (well, several) but…
Escaping Psychiatry has it all: intriguing characters, noir style, thrilling pursuits, dangerous situations, crime, serial killers, religion, family secrets, murder, psychological insights, mental illness, trauma, debates about prejudice and morality, heated trials, police investigations, corruption, and mystery. If you enjoy Wire in the Blood, Cracker and Lie to Me and you are not scared of going deeper and darker, dare to read on.
Escaping Psychiatry is a collection of three stories (‘Cannon Fodder’, ‘Teamwork’ and ‘Memory’) with the same protagonist, Mary, a psychiatrist and writer. She is trying to develop her literary career but circumstances and friends conspire to keep dragging her back to psychiatry. Professional, emotional and very personal challenges confront Mary. Will she manage to escape psychiatry unscathed?
And in Barnes and Noble (Nook):
I have published the three stories in electronic format separately before (I’ve unpublished them now to avoid confusion), but this edition collects them all, with a great cover by Ernesto Valdés, and a brand new epilogue that promises more adventures. I am working on publishing it in other electronic formats and paper copies should be available soon…ish. I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks so much for reading, and if you’ve enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, share, comment, and of course, get CLICKING!
