About Kim

I spent almost two decades in Indiana newsrooms before joining a university marketing and public relations team in 2007, yet I have a lifelong fascination with fairy tales and legends, which is why I have written novels set in the days of Charlemagne.

The Cross and the Dragon is a love story amid wars and blood feuds, and The Ashes of Heaven’s Pillar is a tale of the lengths a mother will go to protect her children. I am working on a third novel about Fastrada, Charlemagne’s most influential and hated wife. Learn more about my books.

I use this space to blog about history, writing, and whatever else inspires me. I live in Indiana with my husband, Randy, and our spoiled cats. We have a daughter and four adorable grandchildren.

  1. Hi Kim,
    We met at the HSN conference last weekend, and I just want to say it was a pleasure meeting you, and that I learned a lot from our discussion during breakfast.

    You gave me your business card but it doesn’t have your e-mail address, so I’m writing to invite you to a new Facebook page I’m starting for writers (like us), editors, graphic artists, etc. It’s called Story Weaver, where we can exchange our draft chapters, links to helpful websites and blogs (like yours), get advice, ask questions about “the business,” etc.
