Acrophobia Guest Post

Good Monday morning, y'all. I'm guest blogging over at Misha Gericke's The Five Year Project on the subject of acrophobia: what it is, how it differs from vertigo, and how you can treat it. There's even a test video to see if you're acrophobic. Darryl James, the protagonist of my short story One Step Away, suffers from severe acrophobia and it nearly ruins his life.

Misha is the author of several books, including The Vanished Knight, The Heir's Choice, and Endless.

Tomorrow, I will be hosting guest blogger Stephanie Faris who will discuss the tricky art of writing book reviews.


  1. I'm going to check it out. I love learning new things.

  2. I guess you can have vertigo just about any place. You have to be up high to experience acrophobia, which I can and do when I'm on a high ledge. I can just think about a high ledge and get a queasy stomach.

  3. I'm acrophobic. It presents itself with an intense urge to jump. I thought this was unique, but actually very common. Will pop to Misha's now :-)

  4. I am both acrophobic and agoraphobic. I have to push myself to go to new places and new, high places are out of the question.


I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
