2023 Muggles Market: Carolina Fantasy Authors – Patrick Dugan and Darin Kennedy

We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.

Darin Kennedy and Patrick Dugan of Carolina Fantasy Authors are returning authors and long time friends of our Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder

Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.

Patrick Dugan and Darin Kennedy will be bringing their various books/series for you to peruse and purchase and possibly other geeky items.
Patrick writes dystopian superheroes and steampunk, and Darin writes contemporary fantasy and paranormal mystery/thriller. Come check out their books!

How did you get started making your glorious plunder?

Patrick and Darin have both been writing for years. Come chat with us about our process and what we have in the works.

What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?

Each of our biggest series have a Platinum Edition, signed & numbered hardcover of one trilogy each. Only 100 will be made of each. We will have a few of these on our table.

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?

Our books are PG-13 for the most part, and signed books are great for gifts.

What’s your favorite love or pirate story and why? 

I’m sure Patrick’s answer would be the love story of him and his lovely wife, Hope.
As for Darin, I’ll just ask: what’s a pirate’s favorite letter?

You can find Carolina Fantasy Authors on the interwebs!
