Dr. Atkins also writes in the nonfiction genre, publishing books on Alzheimer’s disease and Bipolar Disorder. For several years, he co-authored a column for the Waterbury Republican-American called Raising Cane. He has been featured and/or published in numerous publications including The New York Times and The Hartford Courant.
Atkins received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from New York University. He graduated from medical school at Emory University in Atlanta and trained in psychiatry at Yale, where he maintains a faculty appointment. He served as medical director for Waterbury Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry and as regional medical director for Connecticut State Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. Currently, Dr. Atkins limits his psychiatric practice to three days a week, so that he has more time to write.

Some titles include (but are not limited to): Vultures at Twilight, Best Place to Die, Ashes, Ashes, The Portrait, and Risk Factor.
