About the Author

ELAINE ORABONA FOSTER is one of the first 10 prescribing psychologists in the US. She holds a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA).

Elaine received a B.A. in psychology from New York University and a Ph.D. from Nova University. She completed a Fellowship at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in Psychopharmacology. She's worked extensively with soldiers afflicted with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. Elaine has taught classes and symposia on women's issues, anxiety, depression, and cultural factors in medicine throughout the US, Canada and Europe. She has contributed to several books including: The Psychologist's Desk Reference, Pharmacotherapy for Psychologists: Prescribing and Collaborative Roles, and Trauma Psychology [2 volumes]: Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health, and Illness.

In her spare time, Elaine enjoys pushing through the limits of her own anxiety by traveling to places far off and unknown.

JOSEPH FOSTER has had a passion for adventure his entire life, it's led to his now popular saying, "Getting lost is just an excuse to explore." He's an engineer and a scientist but most of all, an experienced adventurer. He's hiked, sailed and flown all over the world; searching for unique places to explore. Whether it's sailing an open sea or climbing a mountain, he's always exploring his physical and emotional limits. As a divemaster, he's trained scuba divers, teaching them how to combat the anxieties that sap their emotional strength and endurance. As a flight test engineer, he's tested new aircraft technologies during high speed flight in low altitude, mountainous terrain. While solo sailing across open oceans, he's faced long periods of isolation, extreme weather conditions and critical gear failures. At the end of his journeys he's always walked away with a comforting peace of mind and a wonder of what's next ... at least up until he walked 500 miles along the Camino de Santiago.
