According to report on the New York Times, bestselling author Dr. Michael Palmer has died at 71. Reports state that he suffered a heart attack while returning from an African safari.
What I find most interesting about the article is the way it focuses on Palmer’s writing as a therapeutic tool to overcome drug and alcohol dependence.
“I loved the feeling of being in control when my life was not,” the article quotes Palmer has having said.
Palmer was the author of Extreme Measures, Political Suicide, and many others.
