Kimberly Derting eBooks
Kimberly was born and raised in the Seattle area, with the exception of a few short stints in Phoenix, Boise, and San Jose. She had a colorful childhood, raised by a single mother who worked her butt off to make ends meet. She showed her brother and her how to enjoy life on a shoestring budget. She was the kind of person who, given the choice between paying a bill and taking them to the circus, would always opt for the circus...and somehow, she always managed to pay the bill. She was the one who taught Kimberly how to laugh.
Her publishing career began at an early age, when she started making homemade coloring books with sheets of blank paper and a stapler, and then went door-to-door to sell them. Unfortunately, her neighbors had limited disposable income for such frivolous purchases, so she was forced to seek her fortunes elsewhere.
She first fell in love with writing (giving up her childhood dreams of being a Veterinarian, and then her later aspirations of "lady trucker") when she signed up for Journalism as her 7th grade elective. It was supposed to an easy A, but it soon became her passion. She moved on to be Copy Editor of the high school yearbook so that she could correct other people's writing mistakes and fill in when they missed their deadlines (and, hey, it was high school...deadlines were frequently missed!).
She still live in the Pacific Northwest, which is the ideal place to be writing anything dark or creepy...a gloomy day can set the perfect mood. She lives with her husband and our three beautiful (and often mouthy) children, who serve as an endless source of inspiration for her writing.
