You can find my paintings on the covers of many of today's independent authors including my own. I hope that you give my stories a try and leave a review and/or ratings as well.I currently live near St. Louis, MO, USA, with my wife and 2 children. At this time, I am working on Book Three of the In the Shadow of the Black Sun series, called Eyes of Mournenhile. Happy to be here and look forward to communicating with you. Please drop me a note any time. I will respond to each and every one.Enjoy the stories!William

    Vision-alphas den

    The alpha is the leader of the pack. The female alpha is the alphas mate, and isn't required. So if the current female alpha dies, a new one is not needed right away.~Vision

    An Excellent Read!

    I really enjoyed this; would recommend it to readers of any age. Very engrossing, it takes you through a number of relationships and you are pulled into all of them. The characters are well thought out and delved into so you care about them without being bored or drug out. I am anxiously awaiting the next one! Bought it for my ereader, am buying the hard copy!

    Great story!

    A Dream of Storms by William Kenney is a wonderful book that is highly entertaining. I am not much of a fantasy reader unless it's paranormal fantasy, but I really found this book fascinating. The cover art is fantastic and it really matches the story which I can't say for most novels. Overall, I found the writing great and the characters are well written. You know it's a good book when the characters are what really drive the adventure. This a great start for a series and I look forward to reading the next book!

    Imaginative High Fantasy at its Finest!

    I have read a good deal of fantasy in my life and I will tell you that A Dream of Storms is not what I expected. Honestly, it was better.

    There are many things to keep going in any fantasy genre to suspend your belief for a few moments here and there and William does it like a pro. This novel is on par with anything in the genre for sale today in my opinion. His characters have depth, emotion, and motivations and the journey is worth it.

    From the beginning, William pulls you in with vivid imagery, emotional scenes and likeable characters. One thing I look for a fellow writer is characters with which you can relate on certain levels and William does this nicely. Even more of a credit to his writing is the details of landscapes and settings. His scenes and descriptions paint a picture of imaginative storytelling on par with the best of the best.

    His story takes twists and turns that are a bit out of the ordinary and add to the overall enjoyment of the story’s progression. Just when you assume you understand a character’s motivations, he tosses in a twist that throws you for a loop! All of the characters are well-written and unique, with as much depth as is necessary, which is to Mr. Kenney’s credit. Trying to keep everything straight in an imaginary world can be a challenging task and he does this flawlessly. I will not spoil the ending of book 1, but it certainly is a cliff hanger! I am looking forward to breaking out book 2, which he just released called Shards of S’Darin.
