Born a Navy baby in Nova Scotia Canada, Kimberly learned quickly to crave change. No coonsistency has entered her life with the exception of change. An introvert though you would not know was completely gifted of change when her recently deceased father in law that writing would heal. He did not lie. He still holds a critical part in being her greatest influence. As a recovering drug addict of many heroin and cocaine years now sees the gifts that rise through our challenges and pain. Kimberly's obsession is held in her love of writing, and her greatest fear and insecurity in in writing. Having no education, she fears to fall short of being read yet her imagination is so strong, she has no choice but be inspired to write. Kimberly writes from the heart of pure truth and emotion in attempts to touch a reader that can relate, and needs to be touched. She is also a poet of many categories and enjoys the flow of the serenity it does bring her.
I have spent the better part of 25 years in Advertising working on global accounts as a broadcast producer and account supervisor. I secretly would write, scared to show anyone in fear of not being worthy to write. Seven years ago I took the plunge and began writing for different sites. I have never been able to not write. I have won editor choice awards and poet of the year, and while exhausting am so rewarded by the self-publishing 3 books recently. Two poetry and one novel as the latest both in ebook and softcover. I often laugh when I look at my wall here and read my homemade poster 'I have no job, and keep odd hours. Both personally and professionally I am very fortunate.
