Kay Kenyon is a fantasy and science fiction author living in Eastern Washington. Her latest novel, At the Table of Wolves, depicts a dangerous game of spycraft set in 1936 England amid the bloom of psychic abilities.

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it "A superb adventure, worthy to launch a distinguished historical fantasy series." It is the first book in the Dark Talents novels, to be followed in April 2018 by Serpent in the Heather

Her work has been nominated for the P.K. Dick, the John W. Campbell and the Endeavour Awards and has been twice shortlisted for the American Library Reading list award. Her novels include the fantasies Queen of the Deep and A Thousand Perfect Things, as well as ten science fiction novels. Connect w

Yes, A Thousand Perfect Things is. I felt that Tori Harding's story was finished by the end. But I do always try, at a book's conclusion, to give a sense of the characters moving forward, living complete lives beyond the defining events of the story, the most memorable challenge of their lives.

Somehow I never got a notice from Goodreads on questions. Anyway, apologies! I don't consider that I ever have writer's block, at least not in the sense most people mean it. I sometimes struggle *between* books, unable to decide what to write next. But when I have a work in progress, I set weekly page goals and then I write whether it is any good or not. And then, if indeed the scene never warmed up and took off, I just revise it extensively. (less)
