Kort biografi
Stephen White is the author of the New York Times bestselling Alan Gregory novels. In his books, he draws upon over fifteen years of clinical practice as a psychologist to create intriguing plots and complex, believable characters.

Born on Long Island, White grew up in New York, New Jersey, and Southern California and attended the University of California campuses at Irvine (where he lasted three weeks as a creative writing major) and Los Angeles before graduating from Berkeley in 1972. Along the way he learned to fly small planes, worked as a tour guide at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, cooked and waited tables at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and tended bar at the Red Lion Inn in Boulder.

Trained as a clinical psychologist, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in 1979 and became known as an authority on the psychological effects of marital disruption, especially on men. White's research has appeared in Psychological Bulletin and other professional journals and books. After receiving his doctorate, White not only worked in private practice but also at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, and later as a staff psychologist at The Children's Hospital in Denver, where he focused his attention on pediatric cancer patients. During those years he became acquainted with a colleague in Los Angeles, another pediatric psychologist named Jonathan Kellerman. At the time, Kellerman and White were two of only about a dozen psychologists in the country working in pediatric oncology.

White began his first novel in 1989 while he was still practicing full time. You can read an excerpt and reviews of all the books in the Book Collection in his Official Website.

White's oldest brother, Richard, is also a writer. Winner of a MacArthur grant and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, he is most recently the author of Railroaded, a incisive history of the transcontinental railroads and how they transformed America in the decades after the Civil War, and Ahanagran: A History Of Stories, which chronicles the life of Stephen and Richard's mother as she grew up in Ireland and emigrated to the United States.

Stephen White lives with his family in Colorado.

A good, interesting read. Well paced, well written, enjoyable. Enough so that I’ll be looking to pick up the rest of the series, maybe start from the beginning this time, lol.

One can sense that this is the beginning of the end for the Dr. Alan Gregory series.

In order to really appreciate this book, you should read "Stephen White On Kill Me"from his website. I put the link at the end of this review. Alan Gregory is framed in the story but is not in the meat of it. A side note is Stephen White must LOVE cars in order to give some of the descriptions he does in this book. This is a striking book that brings up a lot of end-of-life questions. It makes you think.
