I’m Kim Batchelor and I write children’s books, novels for adults, and I'm currently working on my first young adult book, Gem of the Starry Skies. My latest children’s book is The Island of Lost Children, a contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale of Peter and Wendy.
I’ve been privileged to spend time in workshops with authors like Pam Houston, Jonis Agee, Cristina Henriquez, and Lee Abbott, at places like the Iowa Summer Writers Festival and the Taos writing workshops sponsored by the University of New Mexico.
I live in Dallas, Texas, with a spouse, one dog, and far too many cats. One of my prized possessions is a busted tambourine presented to me by Eddie Vedder. Okay, he tossed it to me in a dark stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, but the real story is never as interesting as the one I make up.
