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, with sequels due out in Feb and Nov of 2017. His contemporary fantasy, Pawn’s Gambit, is due out from Falstaff Books later in 2016 with two sequels to follow. His first foray into young adult, a novel affectionately codenamed “Operation: Ghost Story” is currently making the rounds at several publishing houses, many of whom make Darin’s little writer’s heart go all pitter patter. 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 writers somewhat eclectic taste in story subject matter. He is represented by literary agent, Stacey Donaghy at Donaghy Literary Group.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – I’m currently on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, 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.
