A Canadian author, Ryshia Kennie grew up on the prairie, where her first book, From the Dust, is set. Her second book, Ring of Desire, is a paranormal romance set in medieval times.
Since publishing her first two books, she has won her city's creative writing award and now writes romantic suspense and women's fiction. She loves setting her stories in faraway places, and a trip abroad is always an opportunity for research.
She still calls the Canadian prairies home, where she lives with her husband and one opinionated Irish Terrier.
