Where Else Beside Google Can You Find Out About Me?
Posted by Barbara Leavy on Feb 16 2011, 10:11 AM

Before I answer this question, one caution about my Google listings.  It was at first glance flattring to discover that there are pages and pages about me on Google.  A closer look is humbling.  Many, perhaps most of the entries involve book dealers selling used copies of my books.  But in among these are sites in which reviews and references and even discussions of my published work can be found, such as references to my discussions of syphilis and later AIDS as literary subjects in my books TO BLIGHT WITH PLAGUE.

The most obvious thing you can do to learn about me is to return to my home page on this site and click on About. 

If you click on Books you will be brought to a series of images of each book (in the anthology ARTHURIAN ENCHANTRESSES I only have one essay, but it is dear to my heart and so I claim this book even though it has many other contributors).  Click on the image of any of these books and you will find descriptions of them and selections from reviews of my work. 

I have an Auithor's Page on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk (Great Britain).  These supply some biographical and professional information.  They are not quite identical.

I'll give you a thumbnail sized bio here: I received my BA degree from Queens College, the City University of New York, and my MA and PhD degrees from New York University.  After a year of teaching at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, I was welcdomed back to Queens College and hired to begin a tenure-track position in the English Department.  Twenty-nine years later I retired as a full professor.  I still retain an honorary faculty appointment in the DeWitt Wallace Institute for the History of Psychiatry, a division of the Department of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College.

I am not, however, licensed or qualified to do psychotherapy and only practice it on my willing friends.
