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 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. My work will be published in the upcoming anthology How the Light Gets In. I also blog  monthly at the International Bipolar Foundation.

This website 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.

If you would like to learn more about me, please don’t hesitate to visit the Contact Us page or read more on the About Me page. I’m also on Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Facebook. I look forward to working with you!
