Hear Us Roar! Debut Author Podcasts

Meet WFWA member Kimberly Lynne. From a sunny corner room in the house she shares with her husband of 35 years and a blind Havanese named Hope, she pens speculative women’s fiction that explores the inexplicable curiosities of being human. Her debut novel, A Pocketwatch, Spray Paint & Morphine was released in November 2018.

She’s a slush reader and judge for various writing competitions, a volunteer for WFWA, a member of the South Carolina Writers’ Association, and a Wild Acres Writers Workshop alumna. When not in the studio, she’s most likely to be found designing a new garden or on a long walk in the woods. Learn more about Kimberly on her website.
