Writing Resume

As a little girl, I always said I wanted to be a writer, a teacher, and a world traveler.   I’ve done it all and then some!

Some of Kim’s Writing

Since my work gets published several times a year and I have a life, I’m not always on top of updating this page.  I didn’t start a list of publications until a couple of years ago, so some of my early work had timed out.  Sometimes I had links which are live when I find them, only to discover that the periodical archived them and the links aren’t good any more.

So, please just look at this as a representation of my writing, not the whole list, not even the most recent.  It is just some of what I have written.  I often publish articles on this website or on LinkedIn, so you can look there, too.
