Stephen White grew up in
New York, New Jersey, and
Southern California and attended
the University of California
at Irvine (where he
lasted three weeks as a creative
writing major) and Los Angeles,
before graduating from Berkeley
in 1972. Along the way he
learned to fly small planes,
worked as a tour guide at
Universal Studios in Los
Angeles, cooked, waited
tables and tended bar.
Trained as a clinical psychologist, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in 1979 and became known as an authority on the psychological effects of marital disruption, especially on men. After receiving his doctorate, he worked in private practice and at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, and later as a staff psychologist at The Children's Hospital in Denver, where he focused his attention on pediatric cancer patients. During those years he became acquainted with a colleague in Los Angeles, another pediatric psychologist, named Jonathan Kellerman (who published his first novel in 1985). At the time, Kellerman and White were two of only about a dozen psychologists in the country working in pediatric oncology.
White began his first novel in 1989 while he was still practicing full time. It was published in 1991 as Privileged Information.
