Psychology and writing (or writing and psychology) have always vied for the number one spot on my list of greatest passions. I am now a retired psychotherapist and can afford to spend as much time as I want on my writing.

Some people have asked me if my protagonist, psychotherapist Kate Huntington, is me. I wish! She's much more consistently kind and compassionate than I am.

My paternal great grandfather was named after Andrew Jackson and my grandmother said they were related to the former President. My mother was skeptical and pointed out to me one time that people often named kids after someone famous whom they admired.

I could have a heroine inherit her grandparents' house and discover evidence of being related to...hmm, maybe a famous pirate. (less)

A Memorial Day Salute to All our Heroes, Including Our Readers!!

by Kassandra Lamb





Memorial Day salute to the fallen in war, and to the first responders and healthcare professionals fighting our current war.photo by Lawrence Hookham on Unpslash



This year, we would like to honor three groups: our fallen warriors, our first responders/ healthcare workers, and our readers.





First, we’d like to recognize all those who have given their all to defend our country! It is hard to even find words (and I’m a writer so words are my thing) to express our deepest appreciation for their sacrifice. Whe

A great mystery set in the world of horse-racing. The first book in a series. I highly recommend all of them. Nikki Latrell is a flawed but likeable character with a lot of spunk.
