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 running, getting her kitten out of awkward situations 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. Other published works by Kimberly includes a Christmas novella, The Crazy Yates. The sequel to Phoenix, Pardon Falls, is due for release in January 2018 and the final book in the trilogy, Prospera Pass, in late 2018.
Alright, alright … yeah, that’s the boring bio. Here’s what you really need to know:
- I like dogs better than some people (some days, most people).
- I love verbing nouns. (see what I did there)
- Normal girls go to the mall. I go to the office supply store.
- I’m extremely sensitive to gravity.
- Want to see me run? Show me a swarm of ants.
- I think Albert Einstein was reincarnated as my cat.
- Some nights, it’s all you can do to pour a bowl of cereal and a glass of wine. And there’s no shame in that.
