Featured Interview With Author D.F. Kennedy
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I live in Kane, Illinois. It's a quiet little village roughly an hour Northeast of St. Louis, Mo. I was raised in this area but left shortly after high school graduation to join the United States Air Force. I served just shy of 8 years before I was medically separated. I am the mother of three grown children, the grandmother of four, and I am divorced.
I began my writing career late in life. I have written in journals for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until 2021 that I turned those journal entries into novels. I write a mixed genre which includes thriller, romance, mystery, and suspense in a story.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I've always loved to read, but I didn't develop my desire to write "my story" until fifteen to twenty years ago. I knew that the story I wanted to tell needed to age like fine wine, or whiskey. After I began writing, I became fascinated. So many stories in my head and so little time.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I will read just about anything. I am seldom a reader who doesn't finish a book unless I can't get into the story, which is rare. Favorite genre? I love thrillers. I want to be sitting on the edge of my seat, talking aloud, or jumping off the seat when I'm mad, shocked, or surprised. I don't have a favorite author. It took me years to figure out I had a favorite color and there are increasingly more authors than colors, right?
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Whole Truth is book two in the So Help Me God series. The Whole Truth begins right where the first book left off.

When her identity is mysteriously revealed, once her ex-boyfriend, makes a grand entrance at her book signing bringing with him the national spotlight. Determined to succeed against all who bet against them, Roland and Dahlia find themselves threatened, stalked, kidnapped, and torn apart by deception.
