Kim Neville is an author and graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, where she found the first shiny piece of inspiration that became The Memory Collectors. When she's not writing she can be found heron-spotting on the seawall or practicing yoga in order to keep calm. She lives near the ocean in Vancouver, Canada, with her husband, daughter, and two cats. The Memory Collectors is her first novel. ...more

I see a lot of good writers put their manuscripts away after getting rejections from 5 or 10 agents. With THE MEMORY COLLECTORS, I sent out 67 queries before I landed my agents. It's always disappointing if you don't capture the interest of your dream agent, but you can never really tell who's going to end up being a good fit. As anyone who's on Goodreads knows, the book that one reader thinks is a bore can be a life changer for the next, and it's the same for agents. I got a lot of feedback along the lines of "this is good but not my thing," or "I don't know how to market it", which isn't a surprise for a book that's described as women's fiction, fantasy, fabulism, literary fiction, mystery, and even horror, depending on who you ask. I knew the moment I got on the phone with Melanie and Taylor at Root Literary that they understood exactly the kind of story I'd written and that they were the right agents to sell it. I'd thought about giving up the search many times, and I'm so glad I didn't.(less)

Quotes by Kim Neville  (?)

“People matter most, Evelyn. Not things. Never forget that.”
Kim Neville, The Memory Collectors

“Maybe you can't force happiness on a person. But you can build a place where a person could find happiness when they're ready for it.”
Kim Neville, The Memory Collectors

“Facts are only part of the truth. So much can be learned from books beyond what can be found in the words printed on the page ... It's a treasure hunt, an intricate dance through a paper maze, moving from one book to the next in search of nuggets of information, and what untold diversions might be discovered along the way. She's lost entire days in libraries, forgetting why she came in in the first place.”
Kim Neville, The Memory Collectors
