Kim Foster writes YA and adult books about thieves, spies, and assassins. Her YA debut GAME OF SECRETS will be out in Fall 2017 and is a historical fantasy—a spy thriller set in an alternate Victorian world. Prior to becoming a writer, Kim went to medical school and practiced as a family doctor (don’t worry; it doesn’t make much sense to her friends and family, either).

Kim lives with her husband and their two young sons in Victoria, BC, where she’s hard at work on her next book.

Sheilalalalala Hi, Dr. Kim! I'm an RN and dreaming to become a medical doctor someday. And, yes, like you, I'm a reader...although I've been wanting (and I have actually attempted) to write a novel, I guess in the end I got frustrated and all that crap. I might someday finish one probably...well, someday. Sorry for the ramblings that I just did but thank you for the friend invite! :)
