Dr. Douglas G. Flemons is the author of books on writing (Writing Between the Lines), hypnosis and therapy (Of One Mind), psychotherapy and Eastern philosophy (Completing Distinctions), and suicide assessment (Relational Suicide Assessment, co-authored with Dr. Len Gralnik). He is also co-editor, with his wife and colleague, Dr. Shelley Green, of a book on brief sex therapy (Quickies). Dr. Flemons maintains a private practice in Fort Lauderdale and presents widely on hypnosis, psychotherapy, sexuality, suicide, writing, and other topics.
He started taking classes in modern poetry, Chinese philosophy, and communications, all of which turned him upside down, twisting his mind and awakening a fascination with language, the notions of Gregory Bateson, and the practices and ideas of Taoism and Zen. He studied tai chi for nine years and, for five years, worked daily as a co-translator of an ancient Chinese manuscript.
