About this author

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)

“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

“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

“It was the discovery of the quantum universe that changed everything, and that universe was so small and so dynamic that it could not be observed directly. Trying to explain their insights, scientists looked at the language of mysticism. At the subatomic level, the parallels between quantum reality and mysticism were striking. For example, the behavior of light: in some contexts it acted like a wave, in others like a particle. Could it be both? Physicists had no concept for grasping this, so they dispensed with Western logic and embraced paradox. (This is important, too, for the notion of vampires being both living and dead.)”
Katherine Ramsland, The Science of Vampires
