Hi there! My name is Kimberly, but Kim is okay.

I am a teacher and I am also a full-time student, hoping to become to a middle school language arts teacher. I have two children who are five and three years of age, so as you can imagine, I am one busy woman.

I am an avid YA novel reader, particularly YA Fantasy. My favorite authors are Sarah J Maas, Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer Niven, and JK Rowling.
