Kendra Leighton is a YA author. Her debut novel, Glimpse, was published in 2014 by Constable & Robinson's imprint Much-in-Little.

Kendra's first ‘grown-up’ job was teaching English in China, Spain, and the UK. She discovered her love for YA fiction while working as a middle-school English teacher.

In 2008, she left teaching to start an organic chocolate company in Cambridge. These days, when she's not making chocolate, she can usually be found writing, reading, taste-testing chocolate (far more than necessary), or trying to steal other people’s cats.

“The sun had dipped below the horizon and the sky was almost entirely pencil-lead grey. It felt like the normal world had followed the sun over the horizon too, leaving me in this cold, dark universe that made no sense.”
Kendra Leighton, Glimpse

“You may not feel now that there’s a purpose to what you’ve been through, but somewhere along the road, you’ll reach a place you couldn’t have travelled to by any other route, and you’ll be grateful for it.”
Kendra Leighton, Glimpse

“I was wobbling over a precipice. I knew that if I fell for him, I really would fall; the end result could only by destruction. But it was too late. I was already mesmerized by the thrill of the free fall.”
Kendra Leighton, Glimpse
