Hello! Welcome to my website.
I'm so glad you found your way here. I am an avid, lifelong reader turned author, and I hope
that you'll give me the opportunity to entertain you with my stories and blog!
I can remember reading great books until the sun came up, before adult responsibilities made my habit unsustainable. My love of reading has evolved into a love of writing as a creative outlet from the demands of thirty years in corporate America.
My own "Aunt Mary", Mary K. Nierling, inspired my first novel, Whispering Pines. Mary was a generous, extraordinary, slightly formidable woman who excelled in a "man's world" in the mid-1900s. Her spirit fuels many of the story lines in my Celia’s Gifts series.
My goal is to develop stories you can relate to about people that feel like friends. I want to provide entertainment with a message. I love a good horror story as much as the next person, but in a world filled with sadness and tragedy, my mission is to offer stories that inspire hope and optimism versus fear and hate.
Reading alongside you, Kim
