He believes that everyone deserves compassion and access to medical care regardless of the nature of the illness.

Dedicated to his work in addiction medicine, he is also passionate about tennis, backcountry skiing, biking, music, and the Boston Red Sox. Kassels turns his addiction medicine and emergency medicine experiences into a journey of suspense while exploring love and loss, family dysfunction, and the what-ifs of life; the journey will continue in the next Shawn Marks Thriller, Lost to Addiction.

Possibly being held at the Cohasset Middle High School.
