At the age of 12, Kimberly began writing poems, essays, and short stories. At 14, she began her first novel, a project that would take two years and many sleepless nights to complete. Since then, she has written more than ten novels, dozens of short stories, and hundreds of poems and essays. She currently lurks in the Ozark Mountains of southeast Missouri with her husband and son. It's there she terrorizes the residents of a small town with her twisted tales, most of which focus on the dark side of human nature.

A well written story that gives you hints throughout but doesn't give the ending away. I appreciated the warmth the author managed to relay between the characters, it made you want the kind of love what they had without it being nauseating .
