Author of the Deadglass Trilogy (Kensington Zebra). Hearts of Darkness was selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Books of Summer 2012!

A native Seattleitte, Kira spent her childhood hiking the rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest and drying out by the fire with a good book and a mug of something hot. She graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania, where she met her real life Prince Charming and promptly dragged him back to sunless Seattle. She fell in love with historic, haunted cities in graduate school. Now she writes about the twisted cities of her imagination, where wraiths and shape-shifters stalk the night and love redeems even the darkest heart.

Not Dead Yet

There comes a time in the creative cycle when an artist needs to take a little sabbatical and recharge one’s creative juices, but I wanted to pop back in and tell you: I’m not dead yet.

“guardianship over one of Her five sacred powers: air, fire, water, earth, and heart.” “Does that make you Captain Planet?” Kayla asked.”
Kira Brady, Hearts of Darkness

“When you plunge into your human prey, whether with teeth or cock, you worship your goddess. She doesn’t want your silly celibacy, your barren self-restraint. She is fertility. She is blood. She didn’t build this world with hands and hammer, but birthed it bloody and heaving for her children to rule.”
Kira Brady, Hearts of Darkness
