Rick Moskovitz is a Harvard educated psychiatrist who taught psychotherapy and spent nearly four decades listening to his patients tell their stories. After leaving practice, he in turn became a storyteller, writing science fiction that explores the psychological consequences of living in a world of expanding possibilities, including even the prospect of evading death. His characters deal with enduring moral and emotional struggles against a backdrop of a near future world that is still dealing with environmental crises as it navigates the intersection of human and artificial intelligence.

Whether a sprint on the elliptical machine or a walk on the beach, movement seems to unlock the creative process and leads to unexpected insights about the direction of the story. It's been the best way for my characters to find their way out of impossible fixes and around insurmountable obstacles.(less)

“If the abuser is a parent or caretaker, the abuse may be the most attention the child has had from that person. To the child, withholding attention can be a powerful form of coercion. Sexual molestation may be accompanied by physical expressions of affection that are sometimes the only affection the child receives.”
Rick Moskovitz, Lost in the Mirror: An Inside Look at Borderline Personality Disorder
