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.

His Brink of Life Trilogy begins with the quest for immortality in the mid-21st century and concludes with a search for the origin of human life. In Shared Madness, he returned to his roots as a psychiatrist to write a first person tale of a psychiatrist who, while treating a psychotic patient, descends into madness and finds himself at the nexus of a deadly mystery.

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)

Make America Good Again

I believe that America is founded upon ideals to which we have always aspired, but never quite measured up: kindness, compassion, generosity, courage, nobility. And I believe that the arrow of history is still pointed in that direction despite significant detours along the way. The American experiment is by no means finished. The task of the moment is to get us back on the track of the arrow of hi Read more of this blog post »

“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.”
