Supernatural fiction, quotes: "His writings are action-filled, heart tugging, and humorous." "...stories full of hope... edge of your seat."


Background Information

Colleagues and readers alike have dubbed Kerry Alan Denney as The Reality Bender. The award-winning author of SOULSNATCHER (LazyDay Publishing, April 2014, ISBN 978-1612581293) and JAGANNATH (Permuted Press, coming February 2015), Kerry has written several novels and published stories of fantastic fiction incorporating genre-blending elements of the supernatural, paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. With joy, malicious glee, and a touch of madness, he writes reality-bending thrillers, even when the voices don't compel him to. His protagonists are his children, and he loves them as dearly as he despises his antagonists... even when he has to kill them.

James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of THE EYE OF GOD and the SIGMA FORCE series, says: "SOULSNATCHER grabs you by both the heart and the throat, as children with incredible powers are put in the path of villains with truly horrific ambitions. Here is a story rife with adventure, suspense, and a dash of humor, and it had me turning the pages deep into the night--and it will have you doing the same."

Testimonials:

"SOULSNATCHER transcends genre, delving into the basic human need to protect those who are persecuted. An edge-of-the-seat read I could not put down. Highly recommended." Lynda Fitzgerald, author of If Truth Be Told and the LIVE series

"Congrats to Kerry for all his accomplishments and creative work. I look forward to seeing his name on bookshelves soon!" Lauretta Hannon, author of The Cracker Queen

"I picked up SOULSNATCHER expecting to be entertained. And I was. Denney knows how to tell a good story -- the pace was relentless, but not rushed, the action scenes were strong and the characters were compelling with well-planned histories -- and he tells it with heart and humor. If you are looking for an enjoyable read, this paranormal thriller and X-men inspired fantasy would be a good choice. But, at least for me, what lingers after the end of the tale are larger issues of meaning: the commercialization and exploitation of talent, the commodification of labor, the purpose of education, the plight of children trapped in oppressive systems. This is more than just escapist fiction; it is a call to stand up for the vulnerable, a good story with a social conscience. Well done, Mr. Denney." C.H. Ramsey

"If you love suspenseful YA fiction with a good dose of imagination and a liberal helping of sci fi/fantasy, you will love Kerry Alan Denney’s SOULSNATCHER." Rosemary Montgomery, author and educator

"SOULSNATCHER is one of those books that surprise on every page. Mr. Denney has a knack for presenting characters that at first seem normal and like folks you know. Then, suddenly you realize there's a depth to them--and powers you couldn't even imagine--at work in the eternal battle between good and evil. There's genuine worry when they get in a jam and there's so much relief when somehow things work out. Mr. Denney is adept at story-telling with a knowing nod to the humorous aspects of life. I laughed at his wit. While the stakes are high, he never forgets the human touch as the suspense builds to a conclusion you never saw coming. A great read." Michael J. Varga, retired diplomat and author of Payable Upon Return

"SOULSNATCHER has all of the attributes that one looks for in a thrilling novel. The author, Kerry Alan Denney, has a talent for drawing his readers in and delivering them right into the thick of the plot. As the tension builds to a crescendo, the characters seem to take you by the hand and lead you with them through their terrifying adventure. The drama and intrigue culminate in a sequence of events that are both breathtaking and unforgettable. An outstanding work of fiction; this book merits all five stars and a bullet for literary excellence." Michael H. Marjenhoff, artist

"SOULSNATCHER snatched my imagination. I'm not generally one who buys fantasy or sci fi books, but I'm so glad I have Soulsnatcher as a permanent addition to my library. The story lured me into a world where children and their families are in deadly danger, a completely believable world of intrigue and suspense, with a group of people I came to care about. Through it all, the "dark man" Cody Jackson works to rescue the hunted children, but even Cody comes up against powers that test his every ability. I recommend this book whole-heartedly - and I plan to read other books by Denney as he writes them." Fran Stewart, author of A Slaying Song Tonight

On SOULSNATCHER: "Mr. Denney has achieved something that I didn't expect. He's pulled me back into the world of sci-fi! I loved sci-fi in my youth but read mostly thrillers and mysteries now, but Mr. Denney destroys genre stereotypes. If you enjoy a character-driven suspenseful read that pulls you through twists and turns that are totally unexpected, then Soulsnatcher will scratch that itch that you didn't know you had. Bravo, Mr. Denney, you've re-opened my desire to lose myself again in a complex world that has been fully developed in the mind of a masterful writer." Ken Schmanski

"Congratulations, Kerry. Your work is fantastic. I can't wait to walk into a bookstore and see your books on the shelf. Keep at it -- your day is coming!" Lorraine Norwood, author of The Solitary Sparrow

"I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Kerry's works, always looking forward to his next installment. His writings are action-filled, heart tugging and humorous. I am entertained and never disappointed. Kerry's creativity is a gift that he does not take for granted. Commitment and energy are infinite. Congratulations, Kerry." Natalie Watts

"I have had the privilege and pleasure of reading everything Kerry has written. I find his stories to be full of hope while at the same time he weaves plots that keep you on the edge of your seat! I am sure that in no time we will be seeing Kerry's books on the shelves of our favorite book stores. Congratulations, Kerry! I am so proud of you!" Jimi Ann Burgess, retired educator

"I can honestly say that Kerry is one of my favorite authors. I've read one full novel and quite a bit of another, as well as some of his short fiction. Kerry knows how to grip the reader at the onset and not let go. His characters are fully fleshed out and endearing... or terrifying, depending on their role. As a fellow writer/author, I can honestly and enthusiastically recommend his works to anyone who likes to read. (How's that for too many adverbs? But Kerry deserves them all!)" Lynda Fitzgerald, author of LIVE Ringer, LIVE Ammo, Of Words & Music, An Irreconcilable Difference, and If Truth Be Told (forthcoming: LIVE in Person)

"Kerry Alan Denney is a unique, passionate, and talented artisan who seamlessly crosses several genres. His originality goes unquestioned and his ability to put you at the heart of his intriguing, action-packed, and psychologically thrilling stories places him alongside King, Koontz, Heinlein, and other top authors. While his work easily translates into plays, his vivid and creative illumination of each scene provides the reader with an experience worthy of Spielberg's and Cameron's best efforts. Kerry's devotion to his craft is undeniable, as is his ability to ultimately become one of the most loved and prolific writers of our time. Having firsthand knowledge of all his creations, I am only awaiting the first editions! Kerry Alan Denney deserves the tremendous success that the Publishing industry is searching for. They need look no further." Carla Brooner, artist, interior designer, feng shui expert, graphic design specialist, website designer

"Anyone who enjoys the suspenseful and intense psychological thrillers of Poe, Hitchcock, Lovecraft, Straub, Barker, Koontz or King will be blown away by the fantastic and frighteningly vivid works of Kerry Alan Denney. The artistic fervor with which he illuminates his protagonists compels the reader to identify with them from a deeply compassionate perspective. Unequivocally, the authenticity and complexity of his characters are immensely captivating and set his work apart from that of the typical authors of his genre. I genuinely believe that Kerry's boundless imagination and unfathomable devotion to his passions, writing and music, will ultimately result in tremendous success. Read, follow, or get out of the way!" Michael H. Marjenhoff, artist

"I've known Kerry since 1988, when he first appeared on my stage! I've successfully booked him for over 15 years, throughout all phases and changes, and have never grown tired of listening to his music. Intelligent and straightforward, compassionate and genuine, Kerry possesses a talent to please music lovers of all ages and tastes. Whether an enigmatic and engaging instrumental or a rocking, all member participation, Kerry's unique writing style and musical prowess makes him amongst the art's sexiest and enjoyable musicians. This crosses over into his authorship, providing the scenes, characters, and dialogue for some of the best reading I've ever experienced. Artist of the week translates into Artist of the Year for some very lucky publisher! Get him before someone else does!" Paula "Doc" Lark, former stage manager for Parliament Funkadelic
