Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I suffered an anxiety disorder and couldn't find any books that offered me help I could relate to. I decided to write the book I wanted to read while I searched for ways to recover. The book is about my childhood and how it contributed to my condition, my recovery, a cruise to the Mediterranean and how I handled anxiety episodes in my travels, such as lost underwear in Barcelona and dangling in a gondola on the island of Madeira. It takes the reader to the splendor I would have missed had I not faced my fears.
