Judyth Piazza chats with J. Michael Mahoney, Author of "Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease"

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Upon graduation from college in 1952, the author/compiler worked briefly for the federal government before spending four years in the Air Force. Thereafter, he began work as a journalist, first in Ohio and then Georgia, with a two-year hiatus as a foreign correspondent in Africa. It was while working as a journalist in Georgia that he developed his abiding interest in psychology, having been assigned to do some reporting in that field.

Fortunate circumstances enabled him to take early retirement, and he has devoted his full attention since 1966 to doing research that has led to the publication of Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease. Mr. Mahoney is also the author of the poem and the book TOPSY TURVY A Book of Quotations. [from bookstores, or call 888-280-7715]

He presently lives in Northern California, and has three children and five grandchildren.
