BIOGRAPHY Author of paranormal, interracial, diverse and contemporary romance.
I was born in New Orleans, LA, and raised by a single mom who gave me a good foundation. My husband inspired me to write romance. He is truly a wonderful man who makes me laugh, taught me to love myself, stayed with me through hell and high water and has been the best friend I never knew I needed.
Besides being an author, I am also a personal trainer, a bodybuilder and I took 2nd place overall in my first Women's Bodybuilding competition in 2014, fulfilling a dream I had as a teenager. I completed it in my 40s! However, life happens and in 2017, I needed back surgery and in 2019, neck surgery. I don't like taking pain pills, so I had my doctor put in permanent spine stimulation. I literally have to 'charge' my battery in my back every Friday!
I am also a licensed Zumba instructor, a yoga instructor, Tai Chi, and a group fitness trainer.
I am licensed and certified to teach ESL classes (English as a second language), to young students ages 5-12. I am working with students in Beijing, China, via the Internet.
I took a long break from writing for about 8 years, and I will publish a book about my life's story called Kimmie Ray: A Ray of Hope. I am so happy to get back to doing what I love!
Every so often, I reinvent myself. I never stop learning, growing, changing, all to become a better version of myself. I now live in Warner Robins, GA with my husband and two of our six kids, our pets, two cats and an 80 lb German Shepard, named Bella.
