The writer at work. Honest.

Hello lovely people!

I’m Kim, and I write funny, magical books that open an escape hatch from the serious stuff in the world and leave you smiling. They’re about tea-drinking dragons solving mysteries in sleepy Yorkshire villages, and baking-obsessed reapers setting up baby ghoul petting cafes, and ladies of a certain age joining the Apocalypse on their Vespas. They’re about friendship, and loyalty, and lifting each other up, and will let you step outside of life as we know it for a little. Most of all, they’ll remind you that life, and people (of all sorts of descriptions) can be very wonderful indeed.

There are also snarky cats, because that’s how cats are, and not even magical books can change that. But we love them anyway, right? Right. *Eyes the Little Furry Muse apprehensively.*

Originally from New Zealand, I’ve lived and worked in various (usually warm) countries around Europe, the Pacific and the Caribbean. I’ve been writing since before I could do joined-up letters, and with any luck my stories have improved, even if my handwriting has actually become worse. Seriously, it’s like secret code.

I currently live in France with my very understanding SO and the Little Furry Muse (Layla), who inspires the ruder more majestic cats in my stories. I read a lot, write a lot, and consume far too much tea and cake to be healthy. I do balance this by teaching yoga, however. Although ‘balances’ may be pushing it.

I’d love to hear from you with with your thoughts, comments, favourite cake recipes, story ideas (I takes requests), or just to say hi!

Read on, lovely people!



You can  find me at my Facebook page, on Twitter, and Instagram (warning: there will be many gratuitous cat photos involved…) And let’s not forget that if you’re after a dragonish twitter, Beaufort Scales has his own account!

  1. Maree is such a pretty name!

    I would like a story about a dragon who’s afraid of fire and heights.

    And one about a cat called Layla who leads a cat revolution.

    1. Aw, thank you! I’ve never liked it – when we were kids my cousin and I wanted to swap middle names, because we preferred each others. Oddly enough, our parents never went for it…

      I love the idea of a dragon that’s scared of fire and heights! I’m definitely putting that one in my magic story idea pot. The Layla one, though – that may be a little to close to the truth. She may not let me do it. Or I might do it and unexpectedly vanish…
