BIOGRAPHY

Kim has enjoyed writing since she was a young girl; however, began writing her first novel in 2017. Inspired by so many things life has to offer one of which includes her oldest son's diagnosis of cancer she finds it especially gratifying to write a happy ending.

"I believe you should come away refreshed and inspired after reading a book. In my personal life, I wear so many hats working inside and outside the home. I work hard, try harder and then begin again the next day. Despite my best efforts, sometimes life just stinks. Bad things happen. I need and want an outlet, an opportunity to relax and escape to a place where obstacles are met and overcome."

Combining, History, Humor, and Romance with an emphasis on Faith, Friends and Good Clean Fun, Kim's stories are written to remind us how God can use adversity to strengthen us and draw us closer to Him and give us the desires of our heart in ways we may never expect.

    • My novels are me and my friends and family. One of my favorite characters is Pastor Nelson a 19th century pastor in the fictional town of Carrie Town, Texas. I simply have to imagine how would my husband and handled this situation and the words flow freely. Two other characters Lois in "Lois Risk" and Maggie in "Maggie's Strenght" were based on my grandmother's.

    • I grew up with four brothers and raised three sons, so perhaps I feel more closely aligned with the way a man thinks than most. However, we are different. I like the analogy of men are like waffles (one thing at a time) and women are like spaghetti (everything relates or touches) The hardest thing for me to remember for me in writing is that men typically use fewer words on a daily basis than women. (Not true at my house though, lol)
