Independent Press Award: The GAB TALKS Podcast:
Cindy Kibbe (writing as C.K. Donnelly) discusses her Kinderra Saga with Gabby Olczak, President of the Independent Press Award - Live Interview.

Cindy's journey toward becoming an awardwinning fantasy novelist was a long one with stops in healthcare, information technology, journalism, and freelance careers along the way.


Since its release, Trine Rising has won many literary awards and received many 5- star reviews. Trine Fallacy, The Kinderra Saga: Book 2, released August 2021, is following the success of its predecessor, earning praise and top reviews from book reviewers and influencers. Trine Revelation, The Kinderra Saga: Book 3 has just been published.


     Mirana’s fight to bring peace to the land and the battles she faces against her own inner darkness will continue in future novels. The Kinderra Saga is also planned to include prequel trilogies of two pivotal characters, a sequel series featuring the next generation of magically gifted Pinals, and a graphic novel series following the adventures of the elite fighting force, the il’Kin. 


Kibbe's lifelong love of fantasy and perseverance, the self-proclaimed “unsuccessful quitter”, dove into self-publishing, which led to the release of Trine Rising, The Kinderra Saga: Book 1 in August 2020.
