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.
