About Shirley Kennedy

Okay, so this is not a recent picture, but it’s my favorite.

 Hi, I’m Shirley Kennedy, California born and raised. I’m from Fresno,  where I graduated from Fresno High School. I lived in Canada for many years, enjoying skiing and riding horses, and am a graduate of the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada with a B.S. in Computer Science. 

     I’ve had many jobs in my lifetime, including working for several years as a computer programmer/analyst. However, my true passion has always been writing. Finally I took a big risk and decided to devote myself to writing full time. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.  Now, after writing and publishing several traditional Regencies, published with Ballantine and Signet, I have switched genres. Aside from some contemporary mysteries, I’ve been writing western romances and doubt I’ll ever switch again.  I find the Old West, especially wagon trains and the California Gold Rush, provides an endless supply of fascinating plots and characters.
