About

I’m a firm believer in magic, and that ancient doorways to alternate worlds can still be found if we look hard enough. I’m also a hopeless scribbleaholic and, when left to my own devices, like nothing better than dreaming up new fantasy worlds in the back of a dog-eared notebook. Doctors have said they’re unlikely to find a cure any time soon.

In between scribbling, I love reading, attempting to play bluegrass and treasure-hunting on deserted beaches with my young dreamers-in-training. I also hold a LLB (hons) degree, an APD in Public Relations and I’m an Accredited Practitioner with the CIPR (with whom I’ve won a few awards for Magazine & PR work), but I’m definitely happiest, curled up against a rainy window, with my nose in a book. 

I love chatting all things book-related at https://www.facebook.com/BookofFireMK Twitter: @mkenneypr and Instagram: @michken01. 

Book of Fire, my debut YAlit book, was published by Harper Collins HQDigital in August 2017. The second book in the trilogy, ‘ City of Dust’ was published in December 2018 (digital) and and Storm of Ash is coming December 2019 (ebook) and February 2020 (paperback).
