Kimberly grew up in the suburbs of Boston and in Saratoga Springs, New York, although she now calls the Harlem neighborhood of New York City home when she’s back in the US.

She majored in political science and history at Cornell University and earned her MBA, with a concentration in strategy and marketing, from Bocconi University Business School in Milan.

Afflicted with a severe case of Wanderlust, she worked in journalism and government in the US, Czech Republic and Austria, before settling down in Rome, where she works in international development, and writes fiction any chance she gets.

She is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association and The Historical Novel Society and has published four novels Three Coins, Dark Blue Waves, In The Shadow of The Apennines, and Rome’s Last Noble Palace, and one short story collection, Drink Wine and Be Beautiful. Her next novel, Easter at The Three Coins Inn: Three Coins 2, will be released in 2024.

After years spent living in Italy with her Italian husband and sons, she’s fluent in speaking with her hands, and she loves setting her stories in her beautiful, adoptive country.
