Quotations: "My writing draws heavily on my background in psychology, and I usually choose related subjects— careers, self-help, spirituality. I always imagine that I am writing to a particular person, and I try to write about things what will inspire, rather than frighten or discourage people. I love to entertain, as well, and I revere Dave Barry. Others who influenced my writing include my former boss, the renowned biostatistician Frederick Mosteller, who ripped apart every report I handed him, because I tended toward the wordy. I was also influenced by the mystic poet Sri Chinmoy, who says more in a simple four-line poem than I manage to say in a ten-page story. Simplicity and clarity in writing inspire me greatly. I have observed that such qualities develop only when one achieves true inner wisdom and clarity of mind."
