Kim Tomsic has been the new girl at eight different schools, earning a range of contradictory labels, including dork, cool kid, gorgeous girl, ugly girl, clever kid, normal kid, worst at sports, decent at sports, and timid girl, talker. She only had one moniker: the talker. Kim now resides in Colorado with her husband, two children, and two dogs, all of whom keep her merry. Her debut middle grade novel, The 11:11 Wish, was followed by The 12th Candle. Kim's critiquing corner may be found at www.kimscritiquingcorner.blogspot.com.
