Kim was born in 1959 in Yorkshire, she grew up in Kent, and now lives in Northamptonshire, England. Her early career was in residential social work, and has since owned her own catering business and worked for a large hotel group and now works as the creative artistic co-ordinator at the Hayrack Gallery. In most recent years, Kim has spent time developing her writing, publishing three books of her prose with a fourth volume to be published in April of 2013. In addition, Kim takes time to speak to reading groups and local organisations about her work and her influences.
Kim is always looking for ways to broaden her horizons and her understanding of everyday life. With this in mind, she has recently embarked on a course of study in psychology.
