While stationed in a remote corner of the Nevada desert, Kendra penned her first romance, and a career often spent working in fuzzy slippers and pajamas was born. Her work has garnered both critical praise and award nominations, but the best part has been connecting with readers who share her love of dark romance (not to mention heroes with sharp, pointed teeth). Kendra currently lives in Maryland, and can usually be found curled up with her laptop and yet another cup of coffee working on her next book. She loves to hear from her readers, and can be contacted via email or her Facebook page.

1. I normally choose actors and models to play the roles of my characters in my head, because I’m very visual and like to have something to work off of. In my head, Meresin looks like Keanu Reeves during his Matrix days, and Dru looks like a model named Karelea Mazzola (she’s gorgeous, especially with very pale hair and very red lips).
3. It’s a close contest, but Meresin is the most tormented hero I’ve ever written. That made him hard to write sometimes, simply because his story is such a sad one. That said, he was also very satisfying to redeem, and I’ve been waiting to do that for him ever since writing the book Renegade Angel (the 2010 Nocturne that the Hearts of the Fallen series is connected to). 4. Dru has a lot of fun playing to people’s notions of what a vampire must look like, often favoring velvet corsets and leather pants simply because she gets a kick out of the idea that humans seem to think such clothes are a kind of vampire uniform. She has, however, developed an unexpected love of leather pants in the process. 5. Meresin is more than a little claustrophobic, which has made living underground difficult for him. He’s the only one of the Fallen to refuse to live in the house provided for him, instead taking refuge in a hollowed out alcove near the roof of the cave where he can smell fresh air. The other Fallen jokingly call it his nest.
