Kim Karter (4-3-88) is a born and raised Southerner depicting the quirks of the South from an honest perspective. Her upbringing includes various moves as a child including Kansas City, Missouri, and Birmingham, Alabama, but her home is Muscle Shoals, Alabama where she resides today with her family, German Shepherd, and an orphaned fox named Todd. Her hobbies include reading, photography, traveling, and improving her marksmanship. Even though she’s admitted to ‘not being being able to hit paper at the shooting range.’
Her short stories have been published in various literary magazines, including Folly, Dew on the Kudzu, and New Voices. She praises ‘Not in My Kitchen’ as the start of her professional writing career.
“‘Not in My Kitchen’ gave me the confidence to take the next step, and complete projects I’d been working on for a long time. My Grandmother had just passed away, and I turned to writing to help me cope with such a tremendous loss. The character Thelma, is based on her, and within days the story was accepted for publication. I took that as a sign from my Grandmother to get back to work! I could just see her standing behind the editor and slapping them as they read it. She may have had more to do with it than I even know.”
