Your move…

Darin Kennedy - Chess

Welcome! You have arrived at the official website of Darin Kennedy, Doctor by Day, Novelist by Night.

An author of contemporary and dark fantasy, his debut novel, a paranormal mystery titled The Mussorgsky Riddle, was published Jan 2015 by Curiosity Quills Press.  The Fugue & Fable series continues in the sequel, The Stravinsky Intrigue, published Feb 2017, and will conclude in the third and final chapter, The Tchaikovsky Finale, due out December 2017. His contemporary fantasy, Pawn’s Gambit, was released Oct 2016 from Falstaff Books and the second and third books in his The Pawn Stratagem trilogy are underway. His first foray into young adult, a novel affectionately codenamed Operation: Ghost Story, may come out in 2017 as well. That, along with a slew of short stories about hot necromancers, immortal monster hunters and various things that go bump in the night, round out this writer’s somewhat eclectic taste in story subject matter.

In keeping with the chess theme of many of my stories, my blog is called “Checkered Ramblings” and I hope everyone finds it informative and entertaining. Feel free to share anything you find there of interest on the social media site of your choice.

To contact me more directly, please e-mail at – I’m currently on FacebookTwitterGoodreads, and Pinterest and will continue to reach out and explore new social media as time allows.

Special thanks to my good friends and fellow authors, C.L. Stegall and J. Matthew Saunders for their invaluable help in developing this website.

And with that, I will leave you with five words from one of my favorite movies that have gotten me through many a hard time and of late, seem to have finally paid off.

Never give up. Never surrender.
