How We Started

A Short Bio

Living Center Press and Living Center Flms are an outgrowth of Gerald Schoenewolf's psychotherapy practice in the Stuyvesant neighborhood of Manhattan, which is called, The Living Center. 

He was writing fiction for many years with limited success.  When he became a psychoanalyst, he began writing scholarly books on psychological subject, enjoying a little success.  However, he was still more interested in creative work.

After years of trying to get his novels and poems published, he decided to start his own publishing company, Living Center Press, out of his home in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  With the evolution of self-publishing on Amazon, which allows you to write, edit and typeset your manuscript, create the cover design and then use Amazon to print and distribute the book, it is easier than ever to publish books.

And so, with the publication of Flugalhorn's Flight: Kidnapped by Babes from Outer Space (1988) Living Center Press was born.
