About


Kimberly grew up sandwiched between the mountains and the sea of British Columbia, Canada.

She wrote her first book when she was seven (it was awesome - but the world totally isn't ready for it yet) and her next when she was twenty-seven (see writing samples HERE). When asked to account for the intervening years she likes to suggest the possibility of alien abduction with as straight a face as possible. She is represented by the incomparable Lorin Oberweger of Adams Literary.

Other claims to fame include running Prism Editing, co-hosting the bi-annual Pitch Slam contest, serving on the committee for the annual Whitney Awards program and LDStorymakers Conference, and founding her local writers' guild.

Despite being a city girl with a tendency to cuss a lot, Kimberly is married to an LDS minister and lives in rural northern Canada. There, she helps raise their four rambunctious daughters while pretending not to be afraid of the neighbour's chickens.
