Kendra Leighton - Author

Kendra was born in 1983 and spent most of her childhood absorbed in books. After completing a degree in English Literature and a post-graduate in Education, she taught English in China, Spain and in UK middle-schools. She rediscovered her love for Noyes's 'The Highwayman' while teaching the poem to thirteen year olds, and for YA fiction while browsing the school library. In 2008 she left teaching to co-found a chocolate company, giving her the time to indulge in her true passion: books. While making chocolate she listens to audio-books. The rest of the time, she can usually be found writing YA or studying the writing craft.
