Kendra Elliot is an American Author who writes fictional, thrilling and romantic suspense stories. She was born and raised in the lush Pacific West. Her passion for literature started at an early age where she spent most of the time reading several story books. Some of her favorite writers were Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden among others. Kendra was thrilled by the way authors manage to create vivid stories that almost appeared as if they was realistic.
Ms. Elliot graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Oregon, OR , but later trained as a dentist. She obtained a dental hygiene license and practiced for sixteen years where her passion for writing still persisted in her mind. She later abandoned the dental world and focused on writing. By the year 2010, she was a full time author, producing dozens of manuscripts. Armed with prolific writing skills, Kendra joined The Rose City Romance Writers of America, a local writer’s chapter. During her time at the chapter, Kendra learned a lot especially tips on writing and publications, the community she met was a great inspiration to both her writing dreams and resources she needed.
On the same year (2010), Kendra’s manuscripts were ready and “Stronger Than Bone”, one of her best manuscript became a finalist at the Romance Writers of America (RWA) Golden Heart, a prestigious contest based on Houston Texas. The RWA receives over one thousand two hundred manuscripts every year, which means making to the finals takes a lot of effort for the authors. Kendra burnt the midnight oil publishing her second and third books. The latter won the Daphne Du Maurier award for romantic suspense under the title “Buried”. Over time, Kendra’s genres evolved from contemporary romance to romantic suspense, she talks about her stories ‘tripping over dead bodies at every chapter’ she writes and this made her to change her writing genre altogether.
By the year 2012, Kendra Elliot’s books obtained publications and her first book was published the same year with the title Buried. The publisher, Amazon Publishing published the book and was received by thousands of readers across the world. This first novel depicts crime as one of the most devastating endeavors in our daily life and some of the secrets remains hidden forever and no one may ever know the truth. On the same year, her next novel to be published under the title “Chilled” was released as well.
Kendra Elliot was married and they have three children, all are girls and they all live at the West Pacific together with a Pomeranian (she actually has 2 cats). By the year 2013, Kendra Elliot, became a renowned author and she won several awards due to her work on the book Buried. It was published by Montlake Romance on March 26th 2013. It features a three hundred and sixty two pages story that runs on a series of productions named Bone Secrets. Buried is the third book in the series. Kendra made her debut series Hidden followed by Chilled, then Buried and received a lot of compliments and views across the globe. Buried became one of the most thrilling stories as Kendra talks about a character (Chris Jacobs) who is a lone survivor of a vanished school bus. She describes him as damaged and suffers a memory lapse. Unlike her debut novel Hidden, where she had talked about a character (Lacey Campbell) who was an ondotologist which depicts her real field of specialization. As a matter of fact, Kendra Elliot wrote the first novel basing the star character (Lucy Campbell) on an area she was well versed with, that is, dental hygiene (ondotology).
On her Bone Secret series, the stories on each book features different characters which allows readers to read randomly without necessarily following the sequence. However, the rest of the series are ordered and is a continuous story.
In the following year 2014, Kendra won the Daphne du Maurier award under the category of best romantic suspense with her novel Buried. The book was also an International Thriller Writer’s finalist for the Best Paperback Original and romantic times for same category (romantic suspense).
However, Kendra has written several other book series such as Rogue River Novella Series and Callahan and McLane Series.
All these novella series have been sold worldwide through both online stores and libraries. Her major selling store is the Amazon.com. The Rogue River Novella Series ran on four books which are full of horrific events starting with “On Her Father’s Grave” as series one through to series four “Walking on Her Grave”. The story was done under a collaboration with Melinda Leigh who did series two “Gone to Her Grave” and the last book “Walking on Her Grave”. Kendra worked on the first and third novels.
Melinda and Kendra first met at the Romance Writers of America where they shared a common goal, that is, take Romance Writing to the next level. Although Kendra’s books were published a year earlier (2010), Melinda’s books debut the following year (2011) but they still worked together though they had all fully left their careers. Melinda was a banker. The inspiration by Stephen King, Diana Gabaldon, and Nora Roberts had a great impact in Kendra’s work on contemporary romance, though currently, she has expressed great passion with mystery as her favorite reading genre.
On the wake of 2013, Kendra signed a contract with the Amazon.com to write exclusive digital content on Amazon’s Kindle platform. However, most readers expressed concern that most of them did not have access to the Kindle platform which led to the introduction of the android based app that was made available to users for free download at Google Play Store.
Kendra has come a long way from her childhood zest for literature to where she stands now. She always expresses herself as a unique person, claiming that she refuses to take anything green and loves a good Mia Tai on the beach of Kauai. In 2009, still fascinated by forensics, she spent some of her time with FBI shooting range in Washington DC. Kendra has also expressed concern about reading other writer’s manuscripts as a bad practice that is prone to unnecessary legal issues over time. She advises upcoming writers on how to proceed with a ready manuscript to the next stage – publication.Book Series In Order » Authors » Kendra Elliot
