Each Monday I would like to take some time to get to know some of our favorite authors. My hope is that this will help readers connect with the authors.
Today I would like to introduce you to: Ronie Kendig!
Her books are some that you don’t want to miss! They are action packed and leave you wanting the next one immediately!
Ronie Kendig is an award-winning, bestselling author of over twenty-five titles. She grew up an Army brat, and now she and her Army-veteran husband live a short train ride from New York City with their twin sons and their fur-sons, VVolt N629 (retired military working dog) and Benning the Stealth Golden.
To help us get to know her, I have given her some questions and here are her responses:
Q: How long have you been writing?
A: I have been writing for about thirty years, sought publication in the last 15, and have been published for the last ten.
Q: What are you currently working on?
A: Currently, I’m working on the third book in the Droseran Saga, as well as an indie suspense series, and a new series to possibly sell to publishers.
Q: What are some of your writing must haves? (Drink, snack, supplies, etc.)
A: First thing I try to set up for my new book is to find a soundtrack-style album that matches the tone/mood of the story. While writing, I love to have a candle burning. For the Droseran Saga, since Marco is a scent-based hunter, I try to find a candle that matches someone within the story. Last thing is to have something to drink–water, skinny vanilla latte, or some juice. I’m not really picky as long as I can stay hydrated.
Q: What is your favorite time period to write about? Or read about?
A: In my suspense novels, I am write modern stories. Most of my reading of late has been fantasy or science fiction. However, I do love a good medieval (hello, Tamara Leigh!) or Victorian (hello, Mimi Matthews!) story on the side.
Q: What are some of your favorite books?
A: My favorite novels include: Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris, Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief, and pretty much any James Rollins novel.
I have saved my favorite question for last!
Q: What would you like readers to take away from your books?
A: My most earnest hope when reading my novels is that readers have a sense of hope, or at least that they come away feeling there is always hope–in Christ.

About the book:
A haunting prophecy upended his identity. Now it demands his life.
Once a formidable bounty hunter, Marco Dusan is plagued by insecurity as he tours the realm he now rules. This quiet, backwater planet is not as untouched as he’d once thought. Evidence of collusion between Droseran factions and the powerful Symmachians with their forbidden technology litters his encounters. Worse, all signs indicate Xisya, the alien who tortured him, is still snatching Kynigos Brethren-but to what end?
Corporal Eija Zacdari works hard to win a coveted place on the Symmachian hyperjump program, but instinct tells her their intel is flawed. Despite nearly failing the tests, she is assigned to the team-and lands in the middle of a bewildering conspiracy.
Haunted by a prophecy that promises pain and war, Marco forges alliances to protect the primitive world against Symmachia’s devastating influence. But one truth becomes painfully clear: the biggest threat to their world may be much, much closer to home.
