About the Author
Kim Campbell's love for horses and the horse racing industry began when she was a child, growing up just outside Monmouth Racetrack in New Jersey. Over the years, Kim has owned several off-the-track Thoroughbreds, her inspiration for Storm and Sarge. The involvement with her retired Thoroughbreds and her love of racing led Kim to write her first book, not only as a work of fiction for readers to enjoy, but also to enlighten and educate them to the exciting world of horse racing. Kim's enthusiasm behind the research for The Calm Before the Storm has led her to breed her current Thoroughbred mare, Lilly Bear. Her experiences as she enters the world of breeding and horse racing will be chronicled in her blog, The View From Behind the Starting Gate. Kim lives in Mason Neck, Virginia
