About Geoffrey A. Feller

I was born fifty-two years ago in the Bible belt but grew up in a Massachusetts college town. I am married and my wife and I have moved frequently since we met. We've lived in Minnesota, Massachusetts, and New Mexico, as well as a brief residency in Berlin, Germany. I have worked peripherally in health care, banking, and insurance. In addition to writing, I have done a bit of amateur acting and comedy performances. I am afraid of heights but public speaking doesn't scare me. My wife and I live in Minneapolis with our dachshund.

Review by: Neil Shooter on Nov. 27, 2017 :
Patrick Coyne wakes up in a strange place, and with a sinking feeling realizes he is in the psych ward.
This is a sympathetic and straightforward look at mental illness.
I didn't like the shifting point of view. The writing was a bit stilted, but quite detailed. I found that even though the writing style didn't agree with me I felt a connection to Patrick and wanted to know what happened to him in the end.
That end turned out to be rather sad, and a little disappointing, but quite fitting. And entirely realistic.
