Kendall Talbot is a thrill seeker, hopeless romantic, virtual killer, and award-winning author of stories that’ll have your heart thumping from the action-packed suspense in exotic locations and the swoon-worthy romance.
Kendall has sought thrills in all 46 countries she’s visited. She’s abseiled down freezing waterfalls, catapulted out of a white-water raft, jumped off a mountain with a man who spoke little English, and got way too close to a sixteen-foot shark. When she isn’t writing heart-thumping suspense in exotic locations, she’s enjoying wine and cheese with her crazy besties, and planning her next thrilling international escape.
She lives in Brisbane, Australia with her very own hero and a fluffy little dog who specializes in hijacking her writing time. Meanwhile, Kendall’s two sons are off making their own adventures – look out world.
Kendall’s book, Lost in Kakadu won the acclaimed title of Romantic Book of the Year in 2014, and she’s also been a finalist for Best Romantic Suspense, Best Crime Novel, Best Continuing Series, and Best New Author.
