I live in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, on the shores of Green Bay. I have always been a voracious reader of romances, mostly historical romances and sweeping historical sagas.

I write Historical Romance novels and non-fiction essays on women and feminist movement throughout history. I have a bachelor's degree in History and also one in Humanistic Studies with an emphasis in Ancient and Medieval Research.

Kendel Davi was born in New York City.
The reason I say “born” is because, when I was living there, I started to see the world for everything it has to offer. The experiences I had were the seed that bloomed into the writer that I am today.
However, the journey has not been a easy one and yet it has been very rewarding. When you allow yourself to open up and not judge but listen, you can’t help but grow and with that comes a greater understanding of humanity. Whether you are LBGT or straight, no matter what you enjoy, it’s all linked to making a connection.
So why have a focus on writing ethnic erotica?
Well, I see this world through the eyes of a person of color, yet that doesn’t limit what I wri ... read more
