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 debut novel, The Mussorgsky Riddle, was born from a fusion of two of his lifelong loves: classical music and world mythology. The Stravinsky Intrigue continues those same themes, and his Fugue & Fable series will culminate later this year in The Tchaikovsky Finale. The first novel in his The Pawn Stratagem contemporary fantasy series, Pawns Gambit, combines heroic adventure, magic, and chess. His short stories can be found in numerous anthologies and magazines.
Doctor by day and novelist by night, he writes and practices medicine in Charlotte, NC. Find him online at darinkennedy.com.
