Kim Batchelor writes books for adults and children. Her adult books are actively looking for a publishing home. Her books for children are The Island of Lost Children, a contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale of Peter and Wendy, and Golondrina and the White Butterflies, an environmental tale that also teaches some basic Spanish concepts. You’ll find some of her short fiction for adults under Stories. She confesses to jumping on the creature love affair bandwagon in her series, Paris Diaries, which starts with a scene inspired by a real event when her flight to Paris was diverted to Gander, Newfoundland. Sign up for her monthly newsletter, Stories are Journeys, which includes a Wendy Darling bedtime story in each issue–to read to children or to your internal child.
She’s been privileged to spend time in workshops with authors like Pam Houston, Cristina Henriquez, and Ben Fountain .
Kim lives in Dallas, Texas, with a spouse, two dogs, and far too many cats. One of her prized possessions is a busted tambourine given to her by Eddie Vedder. Okay, he tossed it to her in a dark stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, but the real story is never as interesting as the one she makes up.
