Kendel Lynn is a Southern California native who now parks her flip-flops in Dallas, Texas. She read her first Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators at the age of seven and has loved mysteries ever since. Her debut novel, Board Stiff, was an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Novel. It features Elliott Lisbon, a mostly amateur sleuth who has a slight aversion to all things germy and is only five thousand hours away from getting her PI license. Kendel is the Vice President of Sisters in Crime, the Immediate Past President of SinC North Dallas, the Vice Chair of Bouchercon Dallas, and the Managing Editor of Henery Press, where she spends her days editing, designing, and figuring out ways to avoid the gym but still eat cupcakes for dinner.
