About this author


When I was a kid I was so obsessed with books I used to check out four at a time from the library - that was the limit in the small NC town where I was raised - then walk down the street, sit under a tree, and read them as fast a I could so I could go back to get four more. I've always been obsessed with books.

Now I am the author of Love in Mid Air and the sequel The Unexpected Waltz, published by Gallery on June 8th. Love in Mid Air is told from the perspective of Elyse and her best friend Kelly picks up the tale in The Unexpected Waltz. Both books focus on women who reinvent themselves at midlife - who arrive at the ages of 40 or 50 and begin to seek a whole new direction for their lives.

Kim Wright shared a quote
City of Silence by Kim Wright
“If you want a man to trust you, ask him for a favor. Most people get this part wrong. They try to win people over by offering something to them, but humans instinctively recoil from those who help them. They like the people that they help far better, even if the favor granted is as small as a cigarette.”

Kim Wright, Love in Mid Air

“It's funny. Writing is a solitary task, but in order to succeed at it, you need other people.”
Kim Wright

“And despite it all, he has never been able to abandon hope that his betters will someday notice him. Will someday accept him as one of their own.

It is the failing of his lifetime.”
Kim Wright, City of Darkness

“If Anthony Weaver knew anything, it was this: That life and love and country and duty…that all of these things faded in time. They came and went with the impartial cruelty of the Indian sun. But sin and sin alone is eternal.”
