Kimberly Fish is a professional writer with almost 30 years of media experience. The topics she's researched and written about are both fascinating, and, on occasion, mind-numbing. When she came across a notation in an archived Chamber of Commerce book--about federal pipeline project begun in Texas and credited with helping to win WWII--it inspired her to write a novel, The Big Inch, retelling a story too good, too crazy big, to be overlooked by modern readers. WWII also birthed the United States' first organized spy agency, The Office of Strategic Services.

I have a Sebastian Faulk's novel--Birdsong--waiting to be read, right next to some summer-fun books I impulse ordered from Book Bub. There's an Ina Garten cookbook in the mix too. And I still have the new books from Susan Meissner and Lisa Wingate calling my name too. My TBR list is teetering.(less)

Who doesn't love a bit of something sweet after dinner--chocolate, aperitif, ebooks? I've written a novella to kick off what--I hope-- will become a series of full, length, contemporary, wholesome, second-chance romances set in Comfort and featuring women who discover their grit and men who find out that money isn't the secret to their happiness. I think you'll like the sass of my Texas charact... Read more of this blog post »
