For almost twenty years I was a faculty member in the Departments of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center. During that time I learned how to write in a disciplined way. While I was not writing fiction, I was, nevertheless, learning how to structure a convincing narrative, use effective language, integrate feedback, edit my work and complete projects in a timely fashion. Most of that work would be of little interest to you, but I have included some of the titles that I feel have been most influential in my development as a writer.
