About this author

So, I write books. Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares are horror, The Goddess War books are mythology, and Sleepwalk Society is contemporary. Different genres, because the world don't move to the beat of just one drum. Love to read, too. Fiction, philosophy, good books, bad books, because you take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have a stack of books and stuff. I mean, you've got to be adventurous. There's more to life that what you're living, so take a chance and face the wind.

There's more coming soon like Slasher Girls and Monster Boys and Ungodly in 2015, so don't waste another minute on your cryin. We're nowhere near the end.

My likes include animals, food, and nostalgia. I mean, whatever happened t...more

The quote today, “squeeze the juice” is from Encino Man, which I never really watched, but Dylan has been quoting for weeks. “Time to squeeze the ju-uuce! No, no squeezing the juice! Squeeze the juice.” I d...

Edresa Thank you. :)


message 39: by Zeynep

Zeynep Ahhh thank you Kendare!
Both of accepting my request and writing such a spectacular book. I saw it on the shelves in K-Mart awhile ago and I picked it up but I shrugged it off, but I kept getting drawn to it! Now I'm absolutely in love with Anna and Cas, even ghosts have boyfriends, jeez. I would really love a longer installment of Anna's story, two books just isn't enough, as would everyone else.

I absolutely love your books, thank you!


Moonlight Hello Kendare,

Thank you very much for accepting my friend request! I loved your novel, Anna Dressed in Blood and am looking forward to reading Girl of Nightmares and Antigoddess :0)

Again, thank you very much.

Kind regards,
Moonlight
