Jonathan Kellerman

(1949 - )

Jonathan Kellerman (born August 9, 1949) is an American psychologist, and Edgar Award winning author of numerous bestselling suspense novels. His writings on psychology (and specifically psychopathology) include Savage Spawn: Reflections on Violent Children. Most of his fictional stories feature the character of Alex Delaware, a child psychologist who consults for the police. He has also written several essays and children's books. Kellerman was born in New York City and grew up in Los Angeles. He received a BA in psychology at UCLA and a PhD in psychology at the University of Southern California, where he is currently Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine.

His internship and post-doctoral fellowship were at the Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles/USC School of Medicine, where he became founding director of the Psychosocial Program, Division of Hematology-Oncology.

Kellerman lives in Los Angeles with his wife Faye Kellerman, herself a well-known mystery writer. Both of them practice Orthodox Judaism. They also have four children. Their oldest, Jesse Kellerman, is a published author and playwright.

Jonathan Kellerman has publicly spoken out against what he calls the "misguided" release of mentally ill people into the community, where they must fend for themselves instead of receiving proper care. He has stated that such people should receive counselling as well as medication, as opposed to today's model in which they receive only medication and no other care at all.
