After being found as an infant crawling among old and dusty books in an abandoned library, Kimberly Richardson grew up to be an eccentric woman with a taste for listening to dark cabaret music while drinking tea, reading books in every genre, and writing stories that cause people to make the strangest faces.
Her first book, the award-winning Tales From a Goth Librarian, was published through Kerlak Publishing in March 2009. Her first time as editor is the wildly popular steampunk anthology, Dreams of Steam. In her precious, but little spare time, she enjoys all things Steampunk, Gothic, eccentric and eclectic, and anything that is coloured purple, blue, or green. Her family, albeit normal, loves her as much as she loves them. She currently resides in Memphis, Tennessee with two cats and several hundred books.
