K.M. Jenkins is a published speculative fiction author who writes epic battles, forbidden romance, and tales of fantasy and adventure. She released her first short story, “A Father’s Protection” in 2018, and plans to publish several more short stories before the year is out. When she is not writing, you will find her running her business as a cover artist at KJ Magical Designs, LLC and chasing her twin boys around the house. Between the three she has epic battles throughout the day and nothing ever gets boring.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the small city of Sioux City, Iowa. There is a lot to desire around here and things got boring fast when I was a kid. Now my time is split between being a stay at home mom two twin boys, writing and author engagements, and running my cover design business.
Boredom is what led me to reading books and taking enlightenment in the fantasy stories other authors created. This is strongly the reason behind my own works. I want to create worlds that keep you wanting more, since life can be a major disappointment at times.
When did you first start writing?
When did I start writing? That's a hard one. I remember in elementary school writing long stories for class assignments, my favorite ones to write were Halloween tales. After, years of practice I would scribble in notebooks, but never thought to be an actual author. My journey has been a long one within the writing world, I just didn't realize I was a part of it most the time.
