Well, hello there

You’ve managed to find the website of award winning author Kimberly Pauley. I write stuff, mostly for kids and teens, but sometimes for adults. Mostly I write funny books, but occasionally they are kind of serious and maybe even a bit spooky. Sometimes I write poetry, though it isn’t as angsty as it was when I was fifteen. Sometimes I write short stories, usually with titles given to me by someone else. I paint miniatures, mostly for D&D and Warhammer (I do the D&D, my son does the Warhammer). I handmake magic wands, eclectic “found” jewellery, and knit scarves that are far too long unless you happen to be a giraffe. I take pictures, mostly documenting my Expat life in the UK and all the random things I make. You could say that I collect hobbies the way some people collect knick knacks and tchotchkes.

Basically, I make stuff.

I hope you’ll enjoy the stuff I make.

The Bet 2017: The Sock Bumbler - Every year for *mumble something mumble* years, I have participated in a bet with some fellow authors wherein the losers have to write short stories with titles given to them by whoever lost less (it's on the Kentucky Derby). It was all started by Brian Farrey (who was inspired by ...Read More
