  1. With Desmond Seward’s book, Caravaggio, a Passionate Life as the basis, I worked with two psychiatrists at Harvard Medical School to diagnose Caravaggio in modern psychiatric terms. The results of this research are presented in writing in a novel which I have written. The style of The Chess Players has been described as journalistic fiction. Though the analysis appears in a work of fiction it is indeed valid and documented in writing. The heroine of the novel, Laetitia Martin, further intgrates these findings in her analysis of the Beheading of St John the Baptist at the cathedral in Valletta, Malta.
