Meet the Author

Kimberly Huff was born in Memphis, Tennessee. She started college at Louisiana State University and after two years, transferred to Emerson College in Boston where she got a bachelor's degree in Marketing, Advertising, and Public Relations.

She wrote Tall Skinny Cappuccino the following summer, and placed its setting in Boston, her college town. "I always said I wanted to write, but I thought it was another one of my random ideas like acting classes or marathon training. My best friend once said to me, 'Kim, I'm a romantic, but you're a hopeless romantic.' It's extremities like these that inspired me to write the crazy thoughts in my head. My mind is an emotional time bomb! You could say that it just went off one day. Seriously, one night I opened my laptop and a story just poured out. I couldn't stop writing!"

After finishing the manuscript, she moved back to Memphis, went to work to find a publisher, and received her master's in Social Work from the University of Tennessee, Memphis. Kim enjoys her career as a social worker and spending time with her dogs.

Read an Excerpt

I absolutely, positively, dreadfully despise getting dolled up. Don't get me wrong, I love the after part, but all the preparation is exhausting. And I'm usually in such a rush that I'm sweating like a pig by the time I apply makeup, which really just defeats the whole purpose of showering.

As I step back and glance in my tilted mirror (which makes me look ten pounds thinner), I admire my backless dress. And what better occasion to wear red lipstick?

Giddily, I fasten my grandmother's yellow diamond necklace, grab my wrap, and lock up. Okay, so I'm excited. Yes, Carmichael Advertising isn't the equivalent of Enron, but I'm still going to a $500 dinner at the Ritz. I'm moving up in the world!

"You look beautiful," I say the moment I see Zoë. Miss Size Zero looks perfect in her little black dress.

As we pull up to the Ritz, I can't help but lose my breath. It feels as if we're arriving at the Academy Awards or something. Limos galore, and there are so many good-looking people clad in the likes of Armani and Versace. I feel like Daisy Buchanan living in West Egg at one of the Gatsby's summer parties. It's like a dream.

"This little soiree probably cost a million dollars!" I say as we enter the ballroom. "Why didn't the generous Mr. Carmichael just donate all this to cancer research?" Zoë cuts me off.

"Emma, you need to chill out and enjoy this. I saw your eyes. I know you're loving it. Now, I'm going to get us some drinks. Can I trust you to keep your opinionated mouth to yourself?" Maybe she's right, but of course I don't say that. Maybe because I'm speechless.
