Who is Kimmy L. Davis?
Kimmy L. Davis is a writer of young adult and middle grade fiction who also works as a high school teacher in Louisville, KY. She attended Bellarmine University and graduated in 1995 with a BA in Communications. A strong yearning for creativity in daily life and a lack of desire for a nine–to-five lifestyle led her to secondary education.
In the summer of 2009 this creative yearning led her down an unexpected path. She completed a young adult novel entitled Saving Beige. Having no mentors besides her English teacher friends, she decided to attend the Big Sur Children’s Writing Workshop sponsored by the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Working with agents and editors, Kimmy learned the skills necessary to critique and revise her writing. She left the conference knowing that she did, indeed, have within her the ability to create and succeed. Later with the help of The White Lion Group she published Saving Beige and the second book of the trilogy, Revealing Marisa. The third book is set for a spring 2014 release.
Kimmy lives with her cat “Kisses”, and spends her free time traveling with her 13 year-old niece who is a constant source of inspiration. She enjoys blogging on a variety of subjects from soap operas and reality TV to current events. She is currently working on an untitled middle grade fiction novel and her Master of Educational Technology from Boise State University.
