The Book: The Secret Stalker of the Prostate by Judith O'Malley-Ford
Synopsis: This book has the potential to save many lives. Every question regarding anatomy, disease processes, decision making procedures for the treatment and considerations of the side effects, psycho-social effects and the impact on relationships, are concisely covered - all in layman terms.
For those men who are in the process of taking that difficult step of presenting prostate problems to their doctors, including those unfortunate enough to be facing investigation for prostate cancer, this book is for you.
Part three of our interview:
4. When did you begin your writing journey?
I started writing when I was still at school, for homework, for fun, and now as a more serious writer to educate, inform, entertain, and to pass on some of my knowledge and skills. As a General Practitioner, I have many topics of interest. People say to me, “Why write a book on prostate cancer?” and I say, “Why not?”
I wrote a thesis on asthma for my Master of Public Health, and no one asked me why I wrote about this topic. It was recommended to subsequent groups of students in this Masters’ course, as a work of excellence.
In January one year, I did the trip to Antarctica, and wrote about it on my return. Antarctica is the most amazing place.
I have published medical works, from the earliest time in my career. My first work was a research paper which I presented to audiences in Brisbane, Christchurch, and in Singapore. More recently, my books have been published in Australia, and in the UK and Europe. I currently write guest blogs for friends and colleagues, for the European Medical Journal, and reviews of friends’ books.
I’ve won a couple of awards for my writing. One was for an essay on risk evaluation for the Royal Australian College of Medical Administrators, the other was a joint award for Limerick writing from the Australian Society of Authors.
5. Do you have a favourite place to write?
My study at home or my office at work.
6. Some writers have a preferred writing schedule. Do you?
I prefer to write late in the day, into the evening, or even into the early hours of the morning, or alternatively sometimes at work during the day. I get ideas for writing any time of the day: driving the car or lying in bed in the quiet, dark. There is always something to write about.
