Author Portrait by Jordan Adam Imaging

A R Kennedy's writing is a combination of her love of travel, animals, and the journey we all take to find ourselves.

A R Kennedy lives in Long Beach, New York, with her two pups. She works hard to put food on the floor for them. As her favorite T-shirt says, ‘I work so my dog can have a better life'. She’s an avid traveler. But don’t worry. While she’s away, her parents dote on their grand-puppies even more than she does.
