What kind of hero will you be?


By Wingéd Chair

When mage-hopeful Merry is mistaken for a damsel in distress, she’s dragged into a fight with memory stealing monsters and the sheriff mad enough to use them. Now she has to team up with an outlaw spell-caster and one of the shape-changing monsters to return the stolen memories of the people she cares about most.

Coming November 26, 2018

Packed to the spokes with complex characters, wry humor, and flawless world building.
— Darby Karchut, best-selling author of DEL TORO MOON and FINN FINNEGAN

Cecily stepped back from the wall, giving Zev a longing look. ‘Doesn’t that make you wish you could fly too?’
I couldn’t help laughing as I wheeled to the door. ‘I can. Don’t worry about keeping up.’

Kendra Merritt

Books have been Kendra's escape for as long as she can remember. She 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) she writes retellings of fairytales with main characters who have disabilities. If she's not writing, she's reading, and if she's not reading, she's playing video games.

She lives in Denver with her very tall husband, their book loving progeny, and a lazy black monster masquerading as a service dog.
