Kim writes Paranormal Thrillers and Poetry.
Deadlines & dead bodies...depends on how much coffee/sleep she has had.
Kim was meant to study pathology and criminal psychology but ended up studying journalism. Now she uses all three to research the supernatural/paranormal, crime, murder and the psychology of evil in her Paranormal Thrillers.

Kim is a South African writer who now lives in New Zealand.
She lives on the beautiful Northern East Coast of New Zealand's North Island and is lucky enough to call the Pacific Ocean her backyard. She can often be found wandering the cliff tops above the crashing ocean and walking through the lush farmlands that surround the area. But with a heart caught between two lands, the sunburned, ancient Africa and the

Kim voted for A Tiger Like Me as Best Picture Books in the Final Round of the 2019 Goodreads Choice Awards.
A Tiger Like Me by Michael Engler
Freckled by T.W. Neal
"My personal Everest as a writer, this book is more than my story... it’s a glimpse into a place and time (Kauai in the 1970’s) that is gone forever."
Kim and 155 other people liked Jessica Woodbury's review of Heather, the Totality:
Heather, the Totality by Matthew Weiner
"I never expected to write another 1-star review. (This is only my second in 10 years.) These days, if something is bad I just quit reading much of the time. What happened here was a combination of curiosity and ultimately having to see it through to " Read more of this review »

"Where a door is closed, another is opened"
~ Don Quixote de la Mancha”

Sylvia Plath
“I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
