As a stay-at-home mom, Kim Boykin started writing, grabbing snip-its of time in the car rider line or on the bleachers at swim practice. After her kids left the nest, she started submitting her work, sold her first novel at 53, and has been writing like crazy ever since. Her books are well reviewed and, according to The Huffington Post, ""she knows how to tell a story that will charm and fascinate her readers.""
Boykin is the author of Echoes of Mercy, A Peach of a Pair, Palmetto Moon, and The Wisdom of Hair and has a heart for librarians, and book junkies like herself. A Peach of a Pair was nominated for The Pat Conroy Award and Palmetto Moon and The Wisdom of Hair were named OKRA picks by the Southern Independent Bookseller Alliance (SIBA,) which is the Southern equivalent of an Oprah pick.
A native South Carolinian, she lives just across the state line in Charlotte, but every single one of her stories is set in South Carolina.
