About Kimberly Wilkerson:
Kimberly Wilkerson began writing as a pre-teen and published her first book after a long recovery from several illnesses/disability. She believes it is important to read to our children and to talk to them about what they are reading; therefore, she decided to write children’s books. Now an advocate for mental health, she donates a percentage of her royalties to various community programs.
What inspires you to write?
Anything and everything that I am passionate about.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
Tell us about your writing process.
I am both an outliner and a seat of the pants kind of person. I think for the most part when I write by the seat of my pants, I go back and form an outline from the scraps of paper etc., to have it make more sense and flow in a storyline.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters are all a part of me in some way, shape, or form so as I progress or change in life then they will as well. I guess that could be considered listening to oneself.
What advice would you give other writers?
Have a supportive people around you that want to help you succeed. It takes a lot to focus on writing if you want to put your work out for the public, so be prepared to have hurt feelings from time to time, and the people who understand and truly love you are extremely important to have in life….just as you would be for another person that you see hurting.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I really didn't think too much of it. Looking back it was more God-lead.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I foresee the continuation of Kingdom of Grace being released by the end of 2022. It will be made available in all the same platforms as the first book, which is through iTunes, Google, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and all local bookstores.
