When Kimberly Rei was five years old, her parents gifted her with a set of Children’s Classics that she had no hope of reading. Yet. Sitting at the Christmas tree, surrounded by dozens of beautiful hardcovers, she was giddy with the potential of one day diving into the pages. That love of words and hunger for stories has never wavered.

Kimberly has been published in more than a dozen anthologies. Her tales lean creepy and aim to leave you with an unsettling urge to look over your shoulder. She is, like most authors, working on a novel, but an addiction to micro-fiction is keeping her on her literary toes, chasing paper dragons.

Always seeking new ways to make words dance, she has taught workshops and edited novels for Authors You May Recognize.

Kimberly currently lives in Tampa Bay, Florida, with her bladesmith wife, a circle of creative friends, and an abundance of gorgeous beaches to explore. Life is good!

Sinlight Rising

by Kimberly Rei   Sinlight flickered around the planet below—a writhing, ancient welcome. It spiked in beautiful colours, beckoning us to visit.

Ten Lords Tumbling

by Kimberly Rei   The mall was three storeys tall, with a spacious central opening and a gathering area at the bottom. The first man to crash down landed as the relentlessly joyful Christmas carol sang “a partridge in a pear tree.” We all stared in horror as verse after verse, another body fell. All […]

Chrysalis by Kimberly Rei – Launches 28th November 2020

Pick six to eight questions to answer, they said. As if narrowing down a lifelong love of words is so easy. What if I pick the wrong ones? What if the ones I don’t pick haunt my dreams? It’s crowded enough in there!

Ever the poster child for “I’m grown! I’ll do what I want!” I chose…uhm…more.

Love Santa

by Kimberly Rei   The first gift arrived by courier. The note simply read, “Your Secret Santa is eager to meet you.” The second gift was waiting at home the next day, hanging from the door knob. He stared at it for too long before dialing the police. They took the bloody offering, and told […]
