    Is Kel kade a male or female? Personally I think it’s a fake name for a well know author. If you notice the “about” paragraphs above, it is carefully written to never say “he” or “she”. In fact , I am now wondering if Kel put clues in the paragraphs to see if one of his/her readers can identify the true identity of “Kel Kade”.

    Just saw some stuff on twitter about your book expo panel. I have to say I learned something that had me shocked. No really, I’m shook. It’s hard to realize how much assumptions can become your delusional reality until you get metaphorically slapped in the face.

    KDT is one of my favorite stories of all, and by far the one I re-read/listen to the most. Thanks for writing them 🙂
