Kimberly Cooper Griffin is a technical program manager by day and a romance novelist by night. Born in San Diego, California, Kimberly joined the Air Force, traveled the world, and eventually settled down in Denver, Colorado, where she lives with her wife, the youngest of her three daughters, and a menagerie of dogs and cats. When Kimberly isn’t working or writing, she enjoys a variety of interests, but at the core of all of it all, she has an insatiable desire to connect with people and experience life to its fullest. Every moment is collected and archived into memory, a candidate for being woven into the fabric of the tales she tells.
Her novels explore the complexities of building relationships and finding balance when life has a tendency to get in the way. Her debut novel, Life in High Def (2016), was a 2017 Foreword Review Indie FAB winner and demonstrates the power of forgiveness through the difficulties of life in the public spotlight, bad decisions that alter lives, and the soul-cleansing discovery of new love.
Her second novel, Chasing Mercury (2017), is a story about two very different women brought together in the remote wilderness of Alaska, where they begin the struggle to understand who they are in order to figure out who they can become.
Although the settings of her books might be in glamorous Hollywood, California; rugged Juneau, Alaska; or fast-paced New York City, readers can relate to the struggles and insecurities of the very real women characters that come to life in her books.
The way to Kimberly’s heart is through a good cup of coffee, a comfortable couch, and hours and hours to talk. But only bring decaf—otherwise, you’ll have to chase her down!
