About this author

When I was a kid I read a book a day, scribbled stories, and dreamed about having my very own book on the library shelf. Let me tell you, it's a fun place to hang out.

I adore Louisiana, Paris, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Egypt, and anything old and musty with a secret story to tell.

I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I think I've drunk so much Land of Enchantment water that some of that ancient magic got into my blood and now spurts out my pencil--I mean ergonomic keyboard.

I make way too many cookies when I'm writing or revising a new book - and I've got the best book trailers in the universe - for reals! Check them out here: www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com. P...more



TADA! I'm very pleased with how it turned out! The right music and the right images and the right words bring it all together, but whoa, it's a lot of work, too! This has been tweaked to death! Whooeeee!!

Many thanks and love to my daughter, Milly, for all her hard work! Catch her very cute Logo at the end of the credits. :-)




Check out that STUNNING Full-Wrap Cover at the end of the trailer!!! Ar... Read more of this blog post »

“Sometimes you just gotta let some tears out or you'll burst. -Miz Allemond”
Kimberley Griffiths Little, The Healing Spell

“Forgiveness was sweeter than I'd ever imagined. Hope was turning into faith. In fact, they were so close they could almost be the very same thing. Or they could be, if I let the tiny seed keep growing inside me. I realized that faith could fix a broken heart. Faith was the glue that held it together. That was part of the miracle.”
Kimberley Griffiths Little, The Healing Spell

“And Mamma was still asleep. I called it the sleeping sickness because coma is the ugliest word in the entire universe. If I could, I'd erase it from the dictionary, but Old Webster would probably hunt me down.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I have found it is surprisingly difficult to remain sad when a cat is doing its level best to sandpaper one's cheeks.”
R.L. LaFevers, Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh

“I blew that clay pigeon to smithereens. I don't know why Mum got so upset. According to Uncle Andrew she's a crack shot herself. But she says I'm too young. What I'd like to know is how old does a person have to be before they get to do all the fun stuff?”

Jane BIGGEST CONGRATS AND HUGS TO YOU (yes, I am yelling this) ON WINNING THE WHITNEY! I cannot tell you how happy I was to see your name on the list of winners! Well deserved!

BTW- I loved Circle of Secrets even more than the Healing Spell! Here's hoping for back-to-back wins!

Oh, gosh, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Janee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My heart was pounding so hard when they called my name!

Hey, where did you see the list of winners? What site because I couldn't find it on the Whitney website or the Storymakers site.

And wowza, you already read Circle of Secrets! And you love it more - I'm in shock!!! THANK YOU!!! Are you working today about 6:30? I may be into the store . . .

Hi Kenna, thank you SO much for writing to me! I'm always thrilled to hear from my readers and I'm so excited that you love my books so much! That makes my whole year to hear that!

And gosh, thanks for the kudos on the book trailer and my looks, too, you are very sweet! :-)

My next book comes out in a year from now. It's called WHEN THE BUTTERFLIES CAME and you'll see it in libraries and the Book Fairs, too.

I know that a year is a looong time to wait - I have a hard time waiting too, but I have a lot of work to do meanwhile to get it ready to be published, as well as Scholastic who creates the beautiful cover art and design.

Happy New Year! I hope 2012 is a wonderful year for you and your family.

Kimberley


Kimberley Little Dear Kenna,

I hope your mother can find it in one of the libraries around you - or did you know that you can actually ask the librarians to order a copy? THE HEALING SPELL is in paperback now, too, on places like Amazon and Barnes & Noble for only $5.99. I think you'll like it since there are connections to CIRCLE OF SECRETS. It will help pass the time until next January when my BUTTERFLY book comes out!

Happy New Year, and happy reading! I love to read, too! Mostly children's and Young Adult books because I think they're so good. :-)

Warm wishes,
Kimberley


Kimberley Little Oh, dear Kenna, you are a darling. THANK YOU so much for this sweet note!

Can't wait to share my new books with you in 2013! (I'll have 2 - yay! One with Scholastic and one with Harpercollins).

:-)
Kimberley

I know! I can't wait, too! :-) Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Kenna!


Kimberley Little Thank you, Kenna! Merry Christmas to you and a very Happy New Year! (Hope you get lots of books as gifts!) :-)


Kimberley Little Hi Kenna, so sorry I'm late responding to your last two messages. I've been out of town the last week speaking at conferences. I hope you get your copy of BUTTERFLIES soon! :-)

And hey, I will actually be in Provo, Utah this weekend for the LDStorymakers conference and there is a huge book signing with dozens of LDS authors at the Provo Marriott from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 10th if you'd like to come with your parents and meet me and get a copy autographed. :-) (I can't remember how far from Provo you are . . . but spread the word!)

Warmly,
Kimberley
