Kimberly S. Barton is an unabashed Gen Xer. As a middle class kid growing up in the 70s and 80s–a time with no internet, cell phones, or streaming–she did a lot of dreaming and making up stories about the drama of being a teenager. Kimberly’s novels will transport you back to a world where telephones had long cords, kids waited eagerly for the premiere of an MTV music video, the most popular video game was Pac-Man, and we wanted to be as cool as the guys on Miami Vice. Her characters make their journeys to self-discovery with the help of sassy, supportive friends, passionate love, and big-hair music.
Kimberly lives in sunny Southern Arizona with her husband and dog.
