Kim Louise Clarke
My writing began nine years ago, when after reading two disappointing mystery books, I decided that I could do better. I tried but failed. But who knows, my mystery manuscript may some year see the light of day. In the meantime, I came to understand that writing short non-fiction stories was more my genre.
I am happy to have had several stories published, including two essays in the Globe and Mail. My first book came out in 2016, a devotional travel memoir, entitled The French Collection – Moments with God in Paris. I am currently writing a second devotional travel memoir book entitled The King of Kings and I, which has been shortlisted in the 2018 Women's Journey of Faith Contest.
I have a degree from Prairie College (Prairie Bible Institute) and have been a member of Inscribe Christian Writers' Fellowship for eight years. My writing goal is that my love for Christ and my love for travelling (in that order) be expressed in stories that prove inspirational, humorous, and informative to my readers.
Calgary, Alberta is my home where I live with my husband and two adult children.
