“Kim writes funny, brilliantly.

 I love her voice. Her writing makes me laugh and cry in the same sentence. She writes straight from the heart.”

- Nancy Slonim Aronie, author of, Writing from the Heart, and creator of, Chilmark Writing Workshop.

"When a writer really cares about his/her subject matter, I believe the reader can tell. This work is the reflection of a writer who really cares and has a personal stake in the lives of her characters. What else makes a story memorable to read?”

- William H. Foster III, retired English professor and author of, Dreaming of a Face Like Ours

Cambium - A middle grade novel  in progress.

What happens when a group of  students decide to stand up to bullying to create a difference in their school?

"People deal with grief in many ways. This is a brilliant and sensitive way that the author expressed how one processes the pain and sadness when faced with an enormity of loss over a short period of time."

- Holly Hatch LCSW, BCD

"As a child psychiatrist, I regularly see issues the author writes about affecting the mental health of children. I was impressed with the author's ability to describe these difficult subjects in a personal way where other parents could relate. The author has a way of using honesty and humor that touches your heart. The simple, elegant writing makes this an easy read that sticks with you. Truly moving!"

- Pamela A. Kurth, MD, MA, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist
