Kimberly Kinrade was born with ink in her veins and magic in her heart and is the female half of the husband and wife writing duo of bestselling, award-winning authors Kimberly Kinrade and Dmytry Karpov published as Karpov Kinrade.
Together, they write fantasy, paranormal, mystery, contemporary and romance and hook readers into new and exciting worlds with writing that blends side-splitting humor, heart-wrenching drama, spine-tingling suspense and sigh-inducing happily ever afters.
They live with their three little girls who think they're ninja princesses with super powers and who are also showing a propensity for telling tall tales and using the written word to weave stories of wonder and magic.
My early literary inspirations (and still my favorite books of all time) are "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis and all things Nancy Drew. I also love anything ever written by Neil Gaiman (I would probably find his grocery lists brilliant) and yes, I am a Stephenie Meyer and J.K. Rowling fan. "The Hunger Games" was a surprising new favorite of mine, as well as Amanada Hocking's "Trylle Trilogy." Patti Larsen is one of my favorite authors of all times--her series "The Hunted" will keep you up at night. And anything written by Dmytry Karpov, including his collection "Dark Edge" and his series "The Lion, The Leprechaun & The Lonely Girl." He is a genius.
Besides the obvious--reading and writing--I love hiking, mountain biking, martial arts and telling scary stories around camp fires. I love riding my bike while sucking on a peppermint, just because it makes the world feel like Christmas. I love Fall and Winter and being cold at night. My family is everything to me, and the time I get to spend with my three little girls, two puppies, and one true love is precious to me.
"You see, I want a lot. Maybe I want it all: the darkness of each endless fall, the shimmering light of each ascent." Rilke
