Hello lovely people!
I’m Kim, and I write funny, magical books that offer 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!
