Thank you so much for reading TQOH!

You can probably tell I'm an obsessive book lover myself. I'll never approach any of these luminaries in my own writing (and they have variable writing styles and genres) but I love to read Bill Bryson, Tom Wolfe, Donna Tartt, Michio Kaku, Kwame Alexander, and Helen Fielding, along with dozens of others.

I was most influenced to write not by any single writer but by my collective admiration for storytellers in general, and a desire to use my medical background as a setting for an entertaining story. I'm definitely a word nerd.(less)

More of Kimmery's books…
“The other thing that I loathed was the complete inability of most people to think critically. They accepted as gospel all kinds of things without ever objectively examining for themselves why they so fervently believed them.”
Kimmery Martin, The Queen of Hearts

“it’s the choices we make when we ignore our scornful intellects and follow our thumping hearts.”
Kimmery Martin, The Queen of Hearts

“Soft puffs of warm air wafted around the corners of the side streets onto Tryon Street, as if being exhaled from some hidden lounging giant, capriciously ruffling hair and thrusting stray scraps of paper aloft, whirling them around like fall leaves.”
Kimmery Martin, The Queen of Hearts
