Well, hello there

Hiya! Kimberly wavingYou’ve managed to stumble across the website of award winning author Kimberly Pauley. I write stuff, mostly for kids, teens, and tweens (but sometimes for adults). Mostly I write funny books, but occasionally they are kind of serious and maybe even a bit spooky (but usually also funny, because I can’t help it). Sometimes I write short stories, often with titles given to me by someone else. I love to teach writing workshops to kids of all ages (including the young at heart). Drop me a note anytime!

Coming in September 2020!

I’m very pleased to announce that my next book, The Accidental Wizard will be out on 3 September 2020 from Scholastic. It’s illustrated by the amazing Jason Cockcroft!

It’s my first middle grade book (ages 8 to 12) and my first to be fully illustrated!
