Meet Kimmel

My name is Kimmel and I’m so excited to have a reason to devour more books!

I was born in Utah but I’ve been a native to Oregon since I was twelve. I married my high school sweetheart and we’ve been married for six years. Together we have two adorable little girls and hope to add to them. My husband is in the Air Force so we will be leaving beautiful Oregon to discover new parts of the world.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to be a stay at home wife and mother. This gives me lots of time to read, one of my favorite things to do. I will read almost anything if the premise appeals to me, however I do tend to migrate towards Fantasy and Science Fiction. I’m also a sucker for a good love story and I enjoy the thrill of a good mystery. My favorite authors include, but are not limited to, Terry Goodkind, Orson Scott Card, Brandon Sanderson, Dean Koontz, and LaVyrle Spencer.

I have recently been developing my writing skills, my second favorite hobby. I’ve been working on a Young Adult novel that will hopefully be finished within the next two months.

Life with two little girls is hectic, but reading keeps me sane. I look forward to offering my opinions to those who love the same things I do in the hopes that they can find their next great read!

Meet Kellie

My name is Kellie and I am thrilled to be a member of Simply Stacie’s Book Review Team. I am a resident of Illinois, in a small suburban town. I am currently working towards earning my Bachelor’s degree, with a major in Mass Communications and a Historical Studies minor.

I enjoy reading, writing, exercise, and, some people think this is a bit strange, I enjoy politics. I always have. In fact, I can recall sitting in front of the TV, at the age of 5, watching CSPAN with my father on a regular basis. Despite my interest in politics, I don’t desire a political career-perhaps one day, but as for now, the answer is no.

My taste in books spans across the fantasy line. I enjoy paranormal, Sci-Fi, and Urban fantasy books. I have always read books, even as a small child. During the summer months, I would take a walk to the town’s public library with my sisters and just spend hours in the library, searching for that one perfect book that would quench my thirst for reading. Some of my favorite authors include, Patricia Briggs, Melinda Metz, Vivian Vande Velde, Ilona Andrews, and a newer addition, Lisa Shearin.

A book has that special ability to pull a person away from the world’s troubles and take them on a journey through a newly discovered world. A world filled with exciting characters; both hostile and heroic, challenging situations, which eventually get solved, and when it’s all over, you can’t wait to pick up that next book, for a new adventure. Reading is indeed a great journey and I am anxious to share my opinions with fellow readers.
