Kim Vernon has been writing for as long as she can remember. After being recognized for her writing during school and college, she spent several years working in bookkeeping and raising a family, which left little time for reading and writing.
Now that her daughter is in college, she has time to pursue her passion for words. She writes poetry, short stories, and essays. She is also working on two novels, in various stages of completion. She enjoys entering writing contests as a way to stretch her creative muscles.
Kim’s poetry and short stories have won several local, state and regional contests, most notably the 2015 Lucidity Ozark Poetry Retreat Grand Prize.
