Marshall Stearn

Biography

My non-fiction books represent my interests in helping the population at large. I am a psychotherapist & Life Coach and have tried to approach my interests to help the human condition, as illustrated in: Drinking & Driving, Self Hypnosis, Portraits of Passion, 90 Important Things to Survive the Future. Being a SAG-AFTRA actor I wrote Screenwriting Made Easy, and subsequent screenplays as books: Miltee, Ed Boudreau, Press Bet, Brief Encounter, Love Is A Many Splendid Thing. These are all fictional and character driven letting my creative imagination take hold. In Portraits of Passion I interviewed 32 men and women about creativity & passion for work. Some of them were known participants: Charles M Schulz(snoopy), Robert Mondavi, Melvin Belli, Steve Allen, Norman Cousins,Jerry Jampolsky, Linus Pauling, John Wooden, Alice Faye, and many others. Their work was their life!
