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

Kendra is also the co-founder of an organic chocolate company. 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

Kendra Leighton, Glimpse
