Kimberly McRae was born on February 26, 1970, in Hartford, Connecticut. She made her newspaper debut that same day when her father, a local college basketball star, was seen giving the peace sign as he first received the news of her birth during the half time announcement.
Kimberly’s writing career took flight when she became a journalist for her high school newspaper. This experience opened her eyes up to a love of writing. She often spent time writing poems during her youth. For several years, she put her love of writing aside to develop her analytic and technical abilities while working with computers and electronics.
On August 31, 1998, Kimberly knew beyond a shadow a doubt that Christ died on the cross for her sins. She repented of that sin and accepted the Lord Jesus as her Saviour.
In 2001, Kimberly returned to her true love of writing and began working on her first novel which has not been published. Since that time she has begun work on a few different writing projects including screenplays, short stories, and additional novels.
All of her writing works would take a back seat as God began to lay a burden on her heart to write a novel about a young girl in Uganda. The book titled Captive would prove to be the most difficult work of fiction for her to write because of the emotional nature of the book which is based on current events. It is still a work in progress.
God placed another burden on Kimberly’s heart to write Christian non-fiction. With each written work she diligently seeks the Lord’s direction and considers these writings to be His writings and hopes they will be a blessing to all of His children and those that seek Him.
On September 1, 2010, Kimberly released a book which she wrote with her son, author Keith McRae. Surviving America’s Military High School is a book written to aid the middle school and high school student entering a military boarding school. It provides practical advice to assist them in all aspects of their military high school life. Surviving America’s Military High School is available through Amazon and CreateSpace. At this time there are no plans to create a digital version of Surviving America's Military High School.
Kimberly enjoys spending time with her family in the Southeast along with their two cats and Rottweiler.
