The wonderful thing about science is it comes in many forms. Sometimes the tangents are lifelong adventures, while others are short bursts of curiosity that take us down a path just long enough to experience the world in a different way.
For example, I find the easiest way to explore psychology is by writing short stories with characters that exhibit the modalities I am studying at the time. How better to understand an affliction than to research it, talk to people who admit to having it, and then write a story wrapped up in its limitations?
Such is the case with Baby in the Box, now available on Amazon Kindle.
Description: Two people, not right for society but perfect for each other, find love in a moment. And then the moment is gone, leaving the lovers oblivious to its absence.
