Stone, Feather

stone-featherFeather Stone
Following her career as a paramedic, Feather Stone's writing became her passion. Having witnessed medical emergencies that most people would rather not think about, she has the fodder to create gut wrenching scenes and plots. Her first novel, The Guardian's Wildchild, emerged not only from Feather's treasure chest of vile characters and their crimes, but also from personal experiences with the paranormal.
Since childhood, a deep connection with another plane of existence shaped her concept of reality. Though she avoided dabbling in occult exercises, nevertheless, she has been guided by beings of Light. Her focus has been meditation, Reiki, and a study of shamanism. Moments of incredible transformational awareness also led to the creation of The Guardian's Wildchild. Many elements shaped this novel's story, combining highly evolved human beings with those who have no conscience; in battles where the good don't always win; where one's powers can corrupt your soul, a consequence worse than death.
Feather believed that following the publication of The Guardian's Wildchild she would be free to explore her many other passions. However, within a month after the launch of her first novel, her writer muse refused to release her. Visions of battle scenes and amazing characters became fashioned into a foreign setting - the Middle East. After much research and guidance from a Muslim physician and police beta readers, Forbidden is now ready for launch.

Kendall, Kay

kendall kayKay Kendall

Kay Kendall studied Russian history at the University of British Columbia, earning her Master’s degree and PhD (abd) there.  Born in Kansas, she is a proud dual citizen of the US and Canada and has lived half her adult life in BC and Ontario. Now Kay and her Canadian husband reside in Texas, where she uses her academic and work experiences in Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto as backgrounds for her mysteries set in the late sixties.  Her debut mystery, Desolation Row, takes place in Toronto, and the sequel, Rainy Day Women, moves from Toronto to Vancouver, with a brief dip down to Seattle.

Kay’s Austin Starr Mystery series features a 20-something Texas-born amateur sleuth who is surprised to discover culture shock in Canada when her American friends had said there would be none. Kay says, “The cultural and political differences between Canada and the US may be small—not on the scale of, say, Lebanon and Tahiti—but nevertheless those differences are real. In my writing I enjoy exploring those differences and hope to show American readers in particular that Canada is its own distinct nation—not the fifty-first state, for heaven’s sake. Murder and mayhem are my tools to do that.”
