I was lucky enough to be granted an interview with Mark Michaels and Particia Johnson after reading their new book: Partners In Passion, what follows is that interview.
1: How long have you been married and what special insight do you think this gave you when you wrote Partners In Passion, if any?
We have been together for over 15 years and will celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary in October 2014. This isn’t long compared to our parents whose marriages have lasted over 60 years. Still, we’ve been together long enough to experience many of the ups and downs and physical changes that people encounter in long term relationships. Our own experiences have given us many insights and have enhanced our capacity to empathize with the joys and challenges that people face when they’re together for a long time. Writing four books has required us to use the techniques we teach and demanded that we practice what we preach. Because Partners in Passion is so comprehensive, it was the most demanding of the four in this regard.
