About C.S. Kinnaird

Chaitanya-Shakti Kinnaird

Thanks for stopping by my blog! 

I’m a Florida-based writer who has worked in journalism, freelance, poetry, and is writing way too many novels at once.

I love the fantasy genre and also enjoy reading sci-fi, YA, historical fiction, historical fantasy, steampunk and other cross-genre and genre-defying novels. Some of my favorite books have been about people who have been displaced, or had trouble expressing themselves, or struggled with depression – but found their way in the end. Classic fantasy really gets me going, but I am also moved by books about teens, the antics of Stephanie Plum, and the woes of Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. Fantasy books with strong female characters especially grab my attention, as well.

Right now I am taking a break from revising a high fantasy novel. My current project is a YA historical novel. Writing is tough, my friends. But I love it and wouldn’t want to do anything else more.

My list of publications include:

  • News reports in the Oakland-based newspaper The Campani
  • Freelance articles on varying subjects, online
  • “Flying”, a flash fiction piece in the 2013 flash fiction anthology Flash In the Attic: 33 Very Short Stories, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords, under the name C.S. Kynehart.

    Without even reading your bio, I straight away recognised your bead bag and knew you were an aspiring devotee like myself. I too, am within the Gaudiya Vaisnava branch for more than 16 years now. I might have seen your face before on festivals – perhaps. First time I’m seeing a devotee here and it’s nice to see that.
