Author Biography

I believe reading is a gift.

As a small child, I grew up living next door to my grandmother who was a voracious and passionate reader. For me, this meant that I had an endless supply of books in my favorite genres at my disposal. I read them greedily. My grandmother knew that books were more than mere words on a page. A well-crafted story has the power to stir the imagination and take us far beyond the boundaries of our own reality. There is no limit to where we may travel or what adventures we may find. Is it any wonder that I fell in love?

It was a natural progression and almost inevitable that I would begin penning my tales. I always thought I would release a young adult novel as my first publication. However, when the moment arrived, I found that my heart told me it was time to pay-it-forward and share the gift of reading with curious, young emergent readers. My grandmother would have approved.


K. Lamb is from the San Francisco Bay Area where she enjoys spending her time with family and penning tales of adventure.
