Dr. Freda Hansburg
Award-winning author of suspense novels
Over her years of work with individuals, couples, groups, and organizations, Dr. Hansburg became well acquainted with the signs and symptoms of psychopathology, the tug-of-war between intimate couples, and the dynamics of conflict on many levels. As a longtime aficionado of the thriller genre of books, the challenge of crafting tales of suspense out of these experiences was
irresistible. That calling produced her two psychological/medical thrillers. “Tell on You,” a story of dangerous infatuation won the 2020 Independent Press Award for Best PsychologicalThriller, the 2019 NYC Big Book Award for Best Psychological Suspense Novel, and was a 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist for the psychological thriller category. “Shrink Rapt”, a medical thriller is a story of suspense and romance, featuring hypnosis, psychiatry, murder, and academic intrigue.
After living and working in the northeast Dr. Hansburg retired from her psychology practice and moved to the beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry to devote herself fully to writing. She now lives in a villa overlooking the Intracoastal on Hilton Head Island – an idyllic setting for a writer. When not working on her suspense novels, you’ll find her on the Pickleball court or sitting on the dock, watching dolphins cavort.
