Kimberly Packard is an award-winning author of women’s fiction. She began visiting her spot on the shelves at libraries and bookstores at a young age, gazing between the Os and the Qs. Kimberly received a degree in journalism from the University of North Texas, and has worked in public relations and communications for nearly 20 years.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found rollerblading, doing a poor imitation of yoga or curled up with a book. She resides in North Texas with her husband Colby, Oliver the cat and a 75-pound lap dog named Charlie.

Her debut novel, Phoenix, was awarded as Best General Fiction of 2013 by the Texas Association of Authors.

Ok, well, three since sometimes if the Muse ain't talking, then maybe that means I should go dig in the garden. But, when I am making myself write, I either take my dog for a walk so I can get out of my head, or I switch medium. I pull out my journal, break the fourth wall and ask the characters what needs to happen. It's amazing what I've uncovered doing this - including switching a chapter to another character's POV to make it so much stronger. (less)
Kimberly Packard When someone stops by at a book signing to tell other readers to buy your book. There's nothing like that unsolicited endorsement.

As a PR person during the day, I’m usually the one prepping people for an interview, not taking part in it myself. So it was pretty cool when the folks from Voyage Dallas featured me in the Art & Life section. Click the link below to read. Enjoy!
