It’s my first author media coverage in Ottawa! And only my second time on TV! (Scroll to bottom for the interview.)
Jamie Rae-Gomes and Roula Thomas were the perfect hosts, setting me at ease and asking fun questions. I was thrilled to show off Stockholm Syndrome to a new audience.
I chatted with everyone in the Green Room–such an interesting show. First I talked to Dominick Hussey, who describes himself as practitioner of osteopathic and functional medicine, a little about my thriller, a little about his training and the Holistic Wellness Centre, and I asked his views about back pain for my upcoming book, The Emergency Doctor’s Guide to a Pain-Free Back.
I talked to people who worked at Rogers TV as well. Katerina and Parisa miked me up (tip: hard to hook a microphone on the back of a soft fabric dress, but they did it!).
Did you know that the Royal Ottawa has a video contest for youth? After my interview, I met ROH’s Shane and the grade 11 student who’s won the French contest for the past three years! Her name is Rebecca. She and her dad are both cool. And the prizes are $1000 for first place, $500 for second. If you’re 12-21 years old and you think you can make a 30-second video before Feb. 21st, why not try? English contest here, French contest here.
And if you’re an artist, they’ve got a $1000-350-150 butterfly contest as well (they take the winners’ rights, though, so it’s up to you to decide).
I met the very elegant Susan of sO Interiors. Susan’s husband Steve is an engineer, and–I had to break this to both Max and Anastasia, my little Minecraft addicts–he’s worked with Minecraft on their mobile servers. Yep, I’m in the big time now.

In this blog you share a great knowledge of back pain and it is good for me. Would you suggest the energy healing exercises to back pain patient
Glad you find my blog helpful.
I’m not aware of any studies showing that energy healing works, but if you’d like to try it, there shouldn’t be any downside besides cost. I know my Chinese medicine doctor friend likes to combine acupuncture and Reiki.
