Steve Proskauer

A natural storyteller steeped in the classic science fiction tradition of Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke, Steve Proskauer has walked many paths.  Beginning as a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and pioneer in psychotherapy, he became an explorer of past lifetimes and altered states, a shamanic healer, a Zen monk — and always, a writer.

Dr. Proskauer is author of two books on integrative psychiatry — Karmic Therapy (2007) and Big Heart Healing (2010) — as well as numerous scientific papers, articles and stories.  He took first place in the Ultra IronPen writing competition at the 2011 Salt Lake Arts Festival.

Steve lives in Salt Lake City with his wife and two cats.  He was inspired to write Gaia’s Web by the spirit of his late father, a visionary physicist and engineer who declared over sixty years ago that our civilization’s disregard for the environment began with the invention of the flush toilet — out of sight, out of mind.

Gaia’s Web is the first novel in the Gaia series.
