Hello, and welcome to the official website of author Cassandra Stout!

My current focus is Committed, my forthcoming memoir about my time spent separated from my newborn while in a mental hospital.  This work recently placed as a finalist in the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association Literary Contest.

I also write both non-fiction and contemporary fiction short stories, though due to my bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, I have a variety of available skills regarding the written word.

This web site holds descriptions of my work and the latest news. My blog, The Bipolar Parent, strives to be a comprehensive resource for parents with bipolar disorder–like myself–and their loved ones.
