My name is Kendra L. Saunders. I'm the author of "Inanimate Objects", "Overlapping Visions" the upcoming dark comedy "Death and Mr. Right" (2013, Spence City), and "The Unlove Spell", as well as many works of poetry and short stories. I'm the arts interviewer for IPMNation and have interviewed musicians, NYT bestselling authors and fashion designers. I love all things Anglophile and Jazz Age. Former music store clerk and natural blonde. One cat allergy from a stereotypical writer. Best friend to the fabulous Dusty.
Coldplay, Muse and IAMX fan.
“You could have said that you were tired or you didn’t feel like talking, darling. I would have asked for you to be given a bunk so you could rest. All you need to do is ask.” Matilda shook her head. “Who’s haunting you?”
“No one. Ghosts don’t… they don’t visit me. They never have.”
Matilda reached for his face, this time cupping it in her hands. “Everyone’s haunted by someone, or else they’d never know who they are.”
In front of the mirrors stood a thin-nosed, smiling boy with black hair and sharp features. He was both painter and poet, a favorite with young women and young men too. He was dressed better than his peers, as always. He spent his precious moments among the wealthy, the filthy poor and the stoned artists. Fashion was as important to him as it was to any female and he left a careless trail of feathers and glitter and paint and fur behind him wherever he went, even in the gutters.
He surveyed the room with glistening, watchful eyes, listening more than speaking, playing with the flame of a candle so that it slipped through his slender fingers and danced in and out of existence.
Ask me some questions! You can ask questions for me or for Death or Lola from Death and Mr. Right, or even for Leo or Elisha from Inanimate Objects. ANY KIND OF QUESTIONS. Come on guys, do eeet! I need to get the juices going since I’m still just really chipping away at this and sorta failing ;)
Each sale of Inanimate Objects helps me get a bit closer to raising the $100 I’m trying to raise for my trip to Wisconsin in November. The trip will be hugely beneficial and fun, but plane ticket prices are trying to murder anyone who dares to fly. I’ve already raised $15.00, so my new goal is $85! :)
And finally, be on the lookout because I have some new release news coming in the next few days. Muahahaha.
