Kay Kendall writes the Austin Starr Mystery series that captures the spirit and turbulence of the 1960s. The amateur sleuth exploits are told in Desolation Row, Rainy Day Women, and After You’ve Gone, a prequel. Her novella, Only a Pawn in Their Game, introduces a new character that will feature in the series. Kay’s degrees in Russian history helped to ground these tales in the Cold War, and her titles show she's a Bob Dylan buff too.
Kay is a winner of two Silver Falchion awards, a member of the national board of Mystery Writers of America and president of its southwest chapter. She blogs with the Stiletto Gang and was a contributing editor to The Big Thrill, the online monthly magazine of International Thriller Writers.
