Kimberly Blackadar



Before she began her writing career, Kimberly taught English, social studies, and drama at the secondary level and cites her teaching experiences as the greatest inspiration for her teen series. Her first teaching job was at Ocoee Middle School (Ocoee, FL) and was followed by other positions at Winter Springs High School (Winter Springs, FL), Ludlow Middle School (Ludlow, KY), and John Edwards High School (Port Edwards, WI). While teaching, she earned National Board Certification for Early Adolescence/English Language Arts and continues to reach students through her writings.

Born in Massachusetts, but raised in Florida, Kimberly graduated from Lake Mary High School (Lake Mary, FL) and earned a teaching degree at Florida State University. She now resides in Minnesota with her husband and two young children. Concurrently, she is working on the second installment of the seven-book series and a standalone adult novel.

Kimberly is an avid runner and reader, but above all, she enjoys visiting schools—receiving feedback from teens is the greatest part of becoming an author!
