Kendra Merritt

Kendra used to hide fantasy novels behind her government textbook in high school, and she wrote most of her first novel during a semester of college algebra. Older and wiser now (but just as nerdy) Kendra writes fairytales with main characters who have disabilities. Her experience with partial paraplegia has shown her you don’t have to be able to swing a sword to be a hero. Kendra is the author of the Mark of the Least and the Mishap's Heroes series and lives in Denver with her very tall husband, their book-loving progeny, and a big, black monster masquerading as a service dog.
