About the Author
Author and physician DM Schwartz has always been intrigued by the spiritual and supernatural forces in our lives. As a boy he wandered the lonely back roads and dark woods of his home in rural Indiana. There he saw beauty and poetry in the natural cycle of life, death, decay and rebirth.
Dr. Schwartz switched from a major in art to premed at Indiana University. He made his way through medical school but never lost his creative passion. DM Schwartz now has his own medical practice. He lives with his wife, four children, and two dogs. Eight Days in October is his first novel.
