Kim grew up in Canada and currently lives in North Clare. Her first novel FINDING A VOICE was nominated for the Bookseller's inaugural Young Adult Book Prize earlier in 2015 and was inspired by her experience in teaching, therapy and community support work. Her second novel PLAIN JANE will be published in the spring of 2016. Today Kim facilitated an excellent writing workshop with 5th class helping students to find their own writing voices. The pieces of writing that the students shared at the end of today's workshop were truly inspiring !
