(The serious and professional version)
The author of This Journey Is My Own is Kass. She is a first-generation Haitian-American female in her thirties. She lives in the suburban Philadelphia area with her husband and son.
Kass is currently a freelancer in the editorial field. She edits and proofreads material. She is currently working on her first novel. She is also the author of Depression Introspection, a mental health blog ranked by PsychCentral in 2007 as one of the Top Ten Depression Blogs.
Kass began This Journey Is My Own in June 2009 to blog about all issues mostly unrelated to mental health: personal, political, musical, and theological (to name a few). She likes regular readers and commenters, but ultimately, her blog is an attempt “to live and breathe for an audience of One.”

(The silly and random version)
Kass is a 32-year-old library assistant and proofreader living and working in the posh suburbs of Philadelphia. When she’s not up reading, listening to music, blogging, or crafting a dismal world in which Independent Fundamental Baptists (IFBs) suck the life out of normal human beings, she is either sleeping, eating, or working. (There’s room for more in between those three, but we won’t go there.)
Kass loves to read nonfiction books and YA novels because she still thinks she’s 18. (She also can easily speak of herself in the third person. Not type. Speak.) She loves to blog on a variety of topics ranging from pop music to mental health to Christian topics. She sometimes drops a cuss word here and there to make a statement (usually when she’s angry) but also to see if her readers are paying attention (not really).
She is addicted to nearly all sweets non-chocolate except for homemade Betty Crocker brownies but has a special weakness for anything strawberry. This is why she can’t lose weight. That, and she exercises (more like, huffs and puffs) for 10 minutes once a week. Gosh, this is becoming quickly self-deprecatory.
Kass’s primary passion, however, lies in writing and she hopes to one day be able to do it regularly for pay and have an audience who enjoys reading whatever she writes (fiction or nonfiction).
Oh, and she’s also a serious Daddy’s Girl. With her late Father but also with her Heavenly One.
Kass’s readers can follow her on Twitter at www.twitter.com/mama_kass. She loves interaction. . . In fact, she craves it. . . Oh, and did she tell you she also has a People-Pleasing Disorder?
She threw a big bash to celebrate turning 30 in 2012.
