  • Unnecessary Poetry on Feb. 27, 2012

    Having been lucky enough to return to school after nearly 40 years in the workplace, I’ve excitedly achieved my Associate Degree, and I’m now continuing the final stages, my last few classes, in pursuit of my Bachelor’s Degree. ... The experience has been a complete thrill and an eye-opening, enlightening, and life changing experience beyond my wildest dreams. I have, however, been exposed to but a tiny fraction of the great writers of the eons as an English major this last ten years, attending part-time, but I have been exposed enough to know one of life’s master writers when I’m lucky enough to stumble upon one. ... And Kimberly is one such amazing writer. She skilfully and empathetically carries her audience on an emotional roller coaster ride that quite literally leaves oneself absolutely breathless and educated all at the same time. ... Lucky enough to study literature through many thousands of years, comparably, it has been a similar thrill to read and enjoy Kimberly’s writing. She easily compares with humanity’s most masterful writers throughout the ages with her powerfully unique, yet carefully nurturing style. Her amazing creativity is beyond comparison. ... In my opinion her writing style reflects the future of writing for us; she’s clever, concise, never overly sentimental or annoyingly over indulgent. She takes us on a journey that is at once, troubling, tearful, empathetic, empowering, and often, side splittingly hilarious, all the while exposing the details of her life beyond what any typical writer, let alone human, would ever do. ... I would heartily recommend her books of poetry to anyone, and don’t be fooled by her samples here on Smashwords, her depth and diversity far surpass what those samples would narrowly convey.

    There is an grand awakening to be had in our world, where abusive behavior, selfishness, manipulation, deceit, and apathy simply fade away into oblivion. And that world starts right here with Kimberly's heartfelt poetry. She exposes herself to an often brutally cold world, while simply driven to help others through the experiences and hard earned wisdom she's gained through her life's extremely difficult challenges. Her poetry is incredibly creative, amazingly unique, a fresh perspective, and often, full of little discussed, yet critically important issues, and ultimately, she carries us, her precious readers, to very special and enlightening moments of joy, happiness, and tears. What a precious gift Kimberly has given us, of herself, of her very unique and special perspective of life. I for one have enjoyed her two books immensely, and profoundly look forward to her many more books yet to come.

    It's well past time we cast aside all the rhetoric about drug usage and the world around it and have a open discussion throughout all of society, with both the young and old, about the true underlying causes, nightmares, and even the crushed hopes and dreams, not too mention crushed lives around drug usage. All to often people hear the term, "drug addict" or "drug dealer," and assert some sub-human or evil connotation, not a real life human being that could be and quite often is a family member or someone they know... That discussion, that truth lies here in Kimberly's masterful writing... There is no fluff, no prose here other than an exquisite path of one precious soul. We are nurtured, cared for, educated, all in a way of writing that, amazingly, emulates the greatest writers of all time..we are literally transported to a world we hope to never be part of, yet we recognize ourselves in this incredibly caring soul, her only failing, for that, my friends is why such continuous, mindless, monstrous tragedy has befallen her...through this book you long to be Sky, yet feel and experience, and feel the terror of being her...all through Kimberly's invention of a writing style that is the future of literature... Not only should this book be in schools, libraries, and coffee tables, but it should be in the hands of psychologists, doctors, therapists, and yes, even politicians...it's fine for a new war, a war on ignorance and apathy...
  • My Life As A White, Female Drug Dealer on May 07, 2012

    At last, the future of writing is here... Kimberqly steps into the oversaturated global arena of desperate writers and throws down the gauntlet... Not since the likes of Faulkner, Steinbeck, Hemingway, or any other hero of literature, most all men, a single voice hasn't uniquely provided as much emotion and depth as Kimberly..... This is not about the glamour or even the horror of drug addiction and its users or dealers....It is a mind numbingly pure and real story of one precious soul's bid for survival, a tearful, turn your insides out, massively emotional rollercoaster of a story, a story not of drug abuse as the worst horror, a horror, yes, but one of little choice in the face of never ending abuse, abuse reaching back to an unfathomable early age. This is not only a expose of the wretched world of street level and corporate level survival through drugs, sex, violence and control, but a cry for help for the countless victims of abuse behind closed doors, a silent, overwhelming travesty with little justice, only fear and desperate attempts to escape what often is, through no fault of their own trapped within a lone victims head, heart and soul... But most of all, this is not just a testament of abuse, typically by men, horrifically sick men, and Kimberly's tragic character, Sky's, intolerable lifetime of a endless, mindless string of abuses and trauma, and one horrific instance lasting three hours, my god, any one of these traumas enough to destroy any one of us..... But this is a story of hope, of survival, of how writing has brought this precious soul from the grips of self- destruction, hopelessness, and even death itself. This is an inspiring tale for the countless victims out there who Kimberly has reached out to with this book and said, "there is hope, dear god, there is an option...," somebody does care....and a firecracker of a writer, a true genius, Kimberly, is one of the first brave souls to risk ridicule, condemnation, and even the inevitable misinterpreting of her message, to reach out to help those tragic souls she clearly understands and cares deeply about....

    I wanted to add that Kimberly is the most incredible soul I have met in my entire 55 years. Her writing style is a wonder of its own, exquisite and brutal at all at the same time, like life. She transports her readers to a world few can imagine, yet cares for you while doing so, and I don't say this lightly having studied literature and writing as an English major now for ten years. Her selflessness, empathy and passion to help others permeates this mind-numbing novel, as well as her two books of poetry. She has literally changed my life, and you will find that she will change yours...
