Devon Winterson


Kimberly Grenfell (a.k.a. Devon Winterson) has been an avid reader of fantasy books since childhood, and has studied creative writing and editing both on her own and through college and independent classes.

Since 2008, she has been a line editor, a contributing editor, and an art director for Writer's Beat Quarterly, a free online magazine for The Writer's Beat writing community. Kimberly has contributed several articles to this e-zine under the regular features "New Writer on the Beat" and "Mechanical Snippets" to help novice writers understand and master the craft of writing and its mechanics. She has also served as an acquisitions editor and line editor at a small publishing company for two years.

Currently, Kimberly has a collection of five full-length novels (in progress) and one novella (also in progress) based in the fictional world of Caendoria, as well as a humorous middle grade novel co-written and co-edited with her son (yes, in progress, as well), and a handful of free "penny fiction" pieces soon available for download on Smashwords - all creations through which she has been able to apply what she's learned in her various studies.

Smashwords book reviews by Devon Winterson

  • Red Gone Bad on Dec. 31, 2012

    Author Lucy Pireel delivers these “behind the scenes” fairy tales versions with an extra special punch-and-twist to the mind. Familiar characters with ulterior motives, and darker than one might expect, Red Gone Bad is a short story collection that's well worth a read, with a bonus flash that contains an alternative version that's sure to make a reader cringe—in a wickedly good way. Be prepared to abandon any deep-seated notions you might hold about Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, and the miller's daughter from Rumpelstiltskin—Lucy Pireel's stories are certain to make you view them all in a different light!
