Willy Wonka meets Needful Things in Kickshaw Candies where there is a secret behind every character you meet. Leave the mint on the pillow or you may awaken to find it isn't your reflection in the mirror.
The idea for Kickshaw Candies came from a short story and the wish for something different in fantasy than the usual damsel in distress with fire breathing dragons. Finnell takes the ideas behind Irish folklore and puts her own twist on them. Along with the familiar creatures of Irish myth, Finnell includes new, never seen before fantasy characters such as The Bringer, and a character that can only appear by the death of his younger brothers.
R.K. Finnell is a lifelong resident of Kansas where she currently resides with the youngest two of three children and three cats. She attributes life experiences, which includes a ride in the back of a hearse when she was four years old, to her writing style. Self described writer of vivid horror, dreamer of death, talented hater of poetry and a damn good cook
