As a journalist and author, I have written extensively on mental health and behavior. My “Mood News” column appeared in Allure magazine for 25 years. My work has appeared in numerous other publications, such as the New York Times, the New York Daily News, Good Housekeeping, Self, More, Health, Natural Health, and Prevention.

I’ve written nine books, most on mental and physical health subjects. After the publication of the original Personality Self-Portrait, I had the good fortune to work with Dr. Oldham again, coediting the award-winning Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Complete Home Guide to Mental Health.

My latest book has more to do with my own mental health, which unfailingly improves as I listen to opera and/or travel. I indulged both loves when I coauthored Along the Roaring River: My Wild Ride from Mao to the Met with Hao Jiang Tian, who grew up during China’s Cultural Revolution.
