Darin Kennedy

Darin Kennedy, born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is a graduate of Wake Forest University and Bowman Gray School of Medicine. After completing family medicine residency in the mountains of Virginia, he served eight years as a United States Army physician and wrote his first novel in the sands of northern Iraq. His novel, The Mussorgsky Riddle, was born from a fusion of two of his lifelong loves: classical music and world mythology - a love letter to Mussorgsky’s magnum opus, Pictures at an Exhibition, and Rimsky-Korsakov’s masterpiece, Scheherazade. The Stravinsky Intrigue continues those same themes while exploring Stravinsky's first three ballets and his Fugue & Fable series culminates in The Tchaikovsky Finale, which takes us through the famous ballets of Tchaikovsky with a finale accompanied by the cannons of the 1812 Overture. The first two novels in his The Pawn Stratagem contemporary fantasy series, Pawn’s Gambit and Queen’s Peril, combine contemporary fantasy with the ancient game of chess. He has thus far published twenty-plus short stories in various anthologies and magazines to include Pill Hill Press, Blood Bound Books, Wicked East Press, Dark Oak Press, Emby Press, Dark Hall Press, White Cat Publications, Curiosity Quills Press, Elder Signs Press, Falstaff Books, Wilder Publications, and a rare piece of fiction in the October 2012 issue of Chess Life Magazine. The best, particularly those about a certain Necromancer for Hire, are collected for your reading pleasure under Darin’s imprint, 64Square Publishing. Doctor by day and novelist by night, he writes and practices medicine in Charlotte, NC. When not engaged in either of the above activities, he has been known to strum the guitar, enjoy a bite of sushi, and rumor has it he even sleeps on occasion. Find him online at darinkennedy.com.
