I've loved books since I was 3, and the library was a highlight of my childhood. I've been fortunate to be able to find great joy in what others have written and sometimes to give this to readers. I follow my own muse, because it leads me on interesting adventures. If others benefit, so much the better.

I'd love to do one on coroner stories, since I'm in the forensic arena now. I'm glad you liked CS, and I still do roam cemeteries, but I don't think I'll do another book like it any time soon.(less)

I explored neuroscience and aha! stories, and put them together to figure out how to make writer's block into an open door. It's just a matter of developing certain habits.(less)

More of Katherine's books…
“I see science and mysticism as two complementary manifestations of the human mind; as its rational and intuitive faculties.

Capra”
Katherine Ramsland, The Science of Vampires

“In its timeless capacity to embody the human condition, the vampire is a poignant metaphor describing the psychosocial experience of the pariah - the outsider. The vampire is the Other that used to be human. The diseased, the mentally challenged, the homeless and hungry, ......are all vampires in a way; the other who used to be human, the invisible who casts no reflection among us.”
Katherine Ramsland, The Science of Vampires

“stories are better than fiction, so let’s hope for some real-life sequels.”
Katherine Ramsland, The Devil's Dozen: How Cutting-Edge Forensics Took Down 12 Notorious Serial Killers
