Whitney was born in New York City to medical parents -- her mother an R.N., her father a neurologist following the footsteps of his father. Back in those days, physicians lived under an awning of prominence.

Writing it helped me realize why I became a writer in the first place -- and why I choose to read what I choose to read. Thank you for chiming in here on my Goodreads author page. I am fairly new at this and a little befuddled as to how it operates (pun intended), so please bear with me. Meanwhile, I am much obliged for your perspective as a medical person!(less)

I was led into this book because I thought it would be a delightful, poetical adventure -- exquisite and sweet. Instead, it pointed me to an entirely different book that was not a detour. I emerged from that "other book" encouraged to decline whateve ...more
Whitney Moore is starting The Little Prince: This edition was printed in too tiny a typeface, so I took a brief detour that turned out to be fabulous (just posted my review of "They Both Die at the End"). I am returning to "The Little Prince" now. Both of these books urge the reader to cherish time and use it well (my favorite subject). For some strange reason, my Kindle thinks I finished reading both editions, but not true! An aging Kindle ?!?
