My beloved miniature schnauzer— the inspiration for Laude.
A R Kennedy was born and raised on Long Island, New York. (And no, she doesn't have that Long Island accent). The finale of her Nathan Miccoli Mystery series, the 8th in the series, is expected in 2019.
When not working on her next novel, she works full time in healthcare to feed (and sometimes clothe) her two little dogs. Both are named after her favorite fictional characters from British entertainment, which few friends and neighbors understand.
The Nathan Miccoli Mystery series is her debut series.
Her book, Saving Ferris, came out September 2018.
