Wendi Kelly and Deb Dorchak started writing together in early 2009 in a creative writing forum. Not only did their characters mesh, but the two authors did as well. It wasn’t long before they both decided the next logical step was to take these characters and put them in a novel.
The actual writing took only four months. To say Wendi and Deb were on fire is an understatement. But that’s not the most amazing part; they collaborated on the story from several thousand miles away. They didn’t meet face to face until May of 2010 when they were ready to refine the first draft and begin the arduous process of rewrites.
Loyalties is the first in a four-part series and the Bonds of Blood & Spirit series itself is only a small part of several other series in the works.
Wendi Kelly lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her family and two dogs. She is an international business and writing coach, helping writers, entrepreneurs and artists who are ready to take the leap into clarity, happiness and success in business and life.
Deb lives in Las Vegas, with her family, two cats and a garage full of motorcycles. Her creative background began with illustration and later on moved into graphic design. Today, she designs websites, logos and books for an international clientele.
In her spare time she fights Nazis, saves small villages from fanatical high priests, and serves as a guardian of the Holy Grail. Just don’t ask her about the incident with those aliens down in Mexico. She’d rather not talk about that.
Both Wendi and Deb own Blue Sun Studio, Inc., which encompasses everything their clients can imagine into one exciting place where their dreams are turned into reality.
