Howard Lawrence Scheiner was born to modest beginnings and raised with love in New York City. A graduate of The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, he feels privileged to practice medicine. He has shared a busy practice in Manhattan and Staten Island with his medical partner of nearly forty years, specializing in Internal Medicine and HIV medicine.
"By becoming a physician, I had the opportunity to see about 200,000 patient visits to date, giving me a unique vantage point into the lives of so many along with the insight into life, health, illness, and death."
His first writing in the public forum was his own Off-Broadway play, "And the stars were shining...", which he wrote, directed, and produced in 2002, at the Jose Quintero theater.
His "Genesis Sonata" for piano had its public debut in concert in 2009, which he happily shares on youtube.com.
He founded "The Brent Varner Project, Inc.", a charity that provides free HIV services to this in need, originally through The Actors Fund of America.
His first manuscript, "A Book Of Life", was and is the story of his journey to understanding and belief in a Greater Reality. That was followed by "Reawakening", written from this new and different perspective with words that come to him outside his five senses. His last book, "I" On Life, offered his readers a distinctive, and even greater, understanding of universal Truth as he enlarged his vision for happiness and a joy-filled life.
His highly personal journey of life and spirit has continued to grow in understanding and belief, transformed by greater awareness, acquired wisdom, and expanded consciousness.
Of note he awakes each day happy to be alive, feeling blessed with the joys and sorrows of his life, joyfully connected to All-That-Is and thoroughly savoring his singular journey.
He remains bound to the city of his birth, residing in Manhattan with Nero the Maltese, Mrs. Jingles, the Chihuahua, as well as Bobby and Michael, his roommates.
He now invites his readers to share in "Apotheosis".
