Kassandra Lamb was a psychotherapist for over two decades, specializing in trauma recovery. She has also taught psychology at Towson University as well as at other colleges. Now retired, she is enjoying the opportunity to pursue her other greatest passion besides psychology–creative writing.

In a recent interview, the psychologist turned novelist said, “It’s always bothered me, when I read a novel, and the author has the psychology wrong. Now I get to write my own books and get it right… That part at least. I try to research things that are not part of my field, but I’m probably making mistakes in those areas some of the time.

“People ask me if Kate is me. I reply that she is my ideal self. She is the person I wish I were. She’s much more patient and more consistently compassionate than I am.”

When not at her computer, transported in mind and spirit into the world of her characters, Kass lives in Florida, with her husband and her dog.  They also visit Maryland often, to stay in touch with their roots.

With my dog Amelia. Sadly we lost her a few years ago, but she was the inspiration for Lacy in the 2nd book of the Marcia Banks and Buddy series.

We have long beautiful autumns and springs in north Florida. I love editing and proofreading on the screened porch.

My current writing companion, Dr. Watson.
