Romantic Book of the Year author, Kendall Talbot, writes action-packed romantic suspense loaded with sizzling heat and intriguing mysteries set in exotic locations. She thrives on thrilling adventures with kick-ass heroines and heroes with rippling abs and broken hearts and loves a happily ever after.
Kendall has sought thrills in all 44 countries she’s visited. She’s rappelled 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.
She lives in Brisbane, Australia with her very own hero and a fluffy little dog who specializes in hijacking her writing time. When she isn’t writing or reading, she’s enjoying wine and cheese with her crazy friends and planning her next international escape.
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.
