Canadian Kelley Armstrong’s first novel Bitten, the initial book of Women Of The Otherworld, was published in 2001. The immensely popular series eventually culminated with the thirteenth volume, Thirteen, in 2012. Beginning in 2014, Bitten was adapted for television by the Canadian channel Space. The seventh book No Humans Involved was Armstrong’s first New York Times best-seller.

In 2007, Armstrong began her second series, Nadia Stafford, with Exit Strategy. 2008’s The Summoning started The Darkest Powers trilogy. The second volume of the series Awakening achieved a number one status on the New York Times best-seller list. She followed that series in 2011 with the sequel trilogy The Darkness Rising.

Armstrong started the Cainsville series in 2013, which is comprised of five novels–omens (2013), Visions (2014), Deceptions (2015), Betrayals (2016), and Rituals (2017)–and the young adult The Age Of Legends with Sea Of Shadows (2014), Empire Of Night (2015), and Forest Of Ruin (2016). She has published (as K. L. Armstrong co-authored with Melissa Marr) the middle-grade fantasy series Blackwell Pages Trilogy.

2019 was another busy year with A Royal Guide to Monster Slaying, the first volume in a new middle grade series, Wolf’s Bane, half of a new duology, and the stand alone thriller Wherever She Goes.
