My name is Kim. I live in England in the county of Norfolk. I’m originally from South London but I moved to Cologne in Germany when I was seventeen. I also lived for a few years in Ireland before returning to London for a while. Norfolk has been my home for over twenty five years and I can’t think of a better place to live.
Reading and writing have been a huge part of my life since I was very young. I used to write mainly poetry, moved on to short stories, and finished my first novel for children aged 8+ a year ago: Joe and Nelly, a ghost story set in London in the Second World War. I am still in the process of writing a novel for older children, another ghost story called The Haunted Tide, this time set in North Norfolk.
We used to have two cats, a mother and daughter, who ran wild in our overgrown garden that is also occasionally home to deer, hedgehogs, owls and dragonflies, and a huge variety of other birds and wildlife. Sadly, the mother, Tosca, was killed at the end of May 2016. Luna, the daughter, has a new friend, Mojo, who is now over two years old and has only recently ventured out to play. I can see the garden from my desk; it’s peaceful, green and food for the imagination.
I have had poetry and short stories published on-line and in a number of anthologies. I have just self-published on Amazon a slim anthology of quirky, and sometimes eerie, flash fiction and short stories in time for Halloween.
