Kimberly Kay Moreland, started blogging many years ago to share about her family life, traveling, and technology to help parents protect their children with online safety tips. Today she writes about many things, but humor writing is her cup of tea.
Kimberly was inspired to begin writing her book when her oldest daughter Katelyn was nearing the age of adulthood. Her goal was that both of her daughters, Katelyn and Elizabeth would have a tangible reference guide whenever she was not available. She often says that she wished she had a starter guide to life when she became an adult.
Kimberly is also a dog lover and has two dogs of her own; a Chihuahua & a Doberman. Often she talks about her love of dogs. She has owned dogs since she was a young child and insists they are a part of her family.
Her travels have taken her many places that have impacted her life in a positive way. She has lived from the East Coast to the West Coast and traveled outside the country, but nothing compares to the comfort of home and family.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I can remember reading was "The Snow Child" by Freya Littledale and illustrated by Leon Shtainmets. I still have this book from the 1970's with the original illustrations. I loved this book and still love it today. The story starts out with a couple who could not have children. One day they decided to make a snow child. The little girl soon came to life, and the husband and wife were so happy. The snow child had to leave when winter was over but the couple waited for her to come back the next winter. I loved the original illustrations they are a part of the story in my mind and part of what I loved about the book.
Moving away from home for the first time is a big step with a lot of new responsibilities. During this transition in your life, many questions will arise about signing a lease, health insurance, personal finance, getting your credit report, to laundry.
