Author

Kim earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut where she minored in English. She also has a Master’s in Dramatic Communication from Regent University where she received instruction in play writing.

She toured throughout the East Coast and California in a one-woman musical about women in the Bible.  When asked to develop two new characters to present at a national conference she discovered her passion for writing.  Since then she’s written monologues, skits and one-act plays while serving in Drama Ministry at churches in California and Nebraska.

In 2004 the Navy transferred her family to Omaha, Nebraska, a perfectly logical move that never made sense to her mother.  Since moving to the area she has taken classes in novel writing from the community college and has become a member of the Nebraska Writer’s Workshop. NWW is a weekly critique group attended by both published and unpublished writers.  She’s a member of the Hearts of America Christian Writer’s Network and the Christian Writer’s Guild. Her stories, The Dark and Fireworks Under an Inflatable Godzilla, won first place for Short Fiction at the 2008 and 2009 HACWN conferences in Kansas. Her short story “Bingo” won the Writers’ Journal Romance contest in 2009 and was published in the magazine’s January/February 2010 edition. In 2010 her novel Winter Trees was a semi-finalist in the Christian Writer’s Guilds First Novel Contest.


Performer

Kim received her B.F.A. in General Drama from the University of Connecticut many moons ago. While there she attended a four week workshop with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. After marrying her husband John, an officer in the United States Navy, Kim started the nomadic life of a military wife. While stationed in Virginia she earned her Masters Degree in Dramatic Communication from Regent University. She got her first taste of touring with the anti-drug play “Say No, Max” and in the one-woman show “Spread Your Garment Over Me.”

After having her children and moving back to Connecticut, Kim appeared in “Godspell” and received an O’Neill award for her role of Sue Bayliss in the Arthur Miller classic, “All My Sons.” She also toured “Spread Your Garment Over Me” to many churches and retreats in the area. The highlight of her time in New England was sharing the stage with singer and composer Ken Medema at the International Coffee Break/Story Hour Convention in July of 1998.

The next move brought Kim and her family to Monterey, California where Kim again toured the one-woman show in addition to appearing in several productions at the Unicorn Playhouse in Pacific Grove.

Since moving to Nebraska in 2004 Kim has delved into the world of Drama Ministry. She’s written, directed and performed a variety of monologues, skits and one-act plays for several churches and has also added public speaking to her resume.

Kim and her husband John also enjoy singing together throughout the Omaha area.
