Kimberly Brock is the author of THE RIVER WITCH, Bell Bridge Books (April 2012).
Her short fiction is included in SUMMER IN MOSSY CREEK, and SWEETER THAN TEA.
Kimberly grew up in the soft blue hills of north Georgia in a 1912 farmhouse, playing in secret closets under the stairs, daydreaming beneath towering oaks, and surrounded by countless litters of kittens, calves, every stray dog dropped off at the nearby crossroads (there was an ongoing ugly dog contest) and the occasional goat. The writing bug bit in fourth grade with her first novel, which her mother typed and enhanced greatly. She enjoyed acclaim in fifth grade when her poem was chosen for special mention by the Georgia Poetry Society and she was honored with the chance to read for the members in Atlanta while her father genially sipped tea. Throughout school, she haunted the library and in high school and college, discovered a love for theater, all of which fostered a great love of storytelling.
She holds a degree in education and formerly taught in a multi-age classroom for severe special needs. She holds a comprehensive certification in Pilates and serves as the Blog Network Coordinator for She Reads national online book club.
Kimberly lives with her husband of sixteen years and their three children, north of Atlanta where she is working on her next novel, preferably in a secret closet or underneath a big old tree, but usually at the kitchen counter.
