Kim Love Stump has loved to read and write ever since she can remember. Whether it was the story she wrote in third grade, I am a Date, or the memory of curling up in her swinging chair reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, fiction in all its forms has always been the fastest way for her to transport herself somewhere else.
While fiction is her first writing love, she has written everything from equity recommendations for a bank trust department to bible studies. She is also a frequent writer of memoir. Whether it is a snippet of real life or one of the intricate lands readers visit in her novel, A Clearing in the Forest, Kim loves world building through words.The real-life world she has built in Charlotte, North Carolina, she happily shares with her husband of 30-plus years, her two grown children and one son-in-law (whenever they visit), and whichever friends are around to receive a dose of love and joy.
