About the author

hat-photoKim is a Fantasy writer who hails from the UK and spends most of her time ‘away with the fairies’. Her superpowers include mainlining fiction novels and looking fantastically silly in hats. She has a degree in English and American Literature, is a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, and works as a Developmental Editor and Proofreader at Acres of Ink.

After some success with short stories, Kim is slowly but determinedly working towards a publishing deal for her current middle-grade trilogy, The Equinox Series. She keeps track of her successes and failures over on the Adventures in Ink tag.

She loves to meet new people, so feel free to get in touch or send her a tweet about something random. The weirder the better.

 Favourite authors Robin Hobb, Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman, with a healthy dose of Roald Dahl and George Orwell thrown in for good measure. Rapidly growing soft spots for Derek Landy and V.E. Schwab.
 Favourite music Rock, Folk, ‘Golden Oldies’, Ska, Punk, Alternative and Instrumental, with a smattering of left-wing Country on occasion.
 Favourite movies The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Die Hard, 10 Things I Hate About You, Get Over ItLabyrinthDeadpool.
 Favourite hobbies Reading (a given), writing (obviously), crafting, drawing, painting and gardening (which I’m really bad at).
 Currently working on  The Winter Court, Book 2 of The Equinox Series.

Five Fun Facts

  • I am exactly 5ft tall and I have webbed feet.
  • I pretended to be scared of the dark until I was 11 so I could read by the landing light after bedtime.
  • I studied Russian for four years and the only word I can remember is yezh (hedgehog).
  • I developed an allergy to caffeine in 2014, which means I have to write without the aid of tea or coffee. I will never emotionally recover from this tragedy.
  • I am an INFP personality type (a Mediator) and have an irrepressible fondness for puppies, manatees, badgers and baby snails.
