Hi, I’m Kimberly Charleston, a writer of books and games for children, tweens and young adults. Ever since I’ve been a young girl, I’ve been passionate about books, especially when it comes to finding creative ways to learn from them inside and outside of the classroom.

From my summer jobs in high school to my work in education, my career has been dedicated to promoting the fun of learning: as a camp counselor, a librarian and as a professional counselor. All my books and games are inspired by the wit, cleverness, creativity and imagination of the child in all of us.

And as one who likes to perpetually dream and ask “what if?” I challenge myself to find new, and sometimes improbable, ways to answer this question. Though I still often act like a child, I find that a more productive use of my time is spent writing for them (and for grown ups too).

I’m grateful that my work has been published all over the world, and translated into several languages. Though I’ve lived throughout the U.S., I now reside in Michigan with my family of dog lovers and many rescued mutts. I also like to collect pictures of interesting dogs along my travels. See my blog for some great pics!
