Excerpt Two:

You’re familiar with the story of Snow White and the Evil Queen. Me too. It’s an interesting story if you look at it closely-- interesting and really fucking disturbing. It’s the story of a little girl who lost her father and was raised by a woman that hated her from the start. She hated the girl so much that she hired a man to chase her down and bring back her heart—even though she was only really her stepmother. The Queen had no real reason to hate the girl, right? She hated her because she was the “fairest of them all” …and she was no longer. That porcelain skin, that jet-black hair, blood red lips…okay, okay maybe I would hate her too. Joking aside, the girl just wanted to be loved. The Queen was all that Snow White had left in the world, but instead, she was loathed by her--wanting all the attention and power that she had.
I get it. I get it more than you think. The Evil Queen is real and we all have someone like that in our lives. Someone who would rather see us dead than to see us with happiness in our lives. Shockingly enough, that person happened to be a family member for me. I’m not saying that she sent someone after me to bring back my heart, but I assure you, she definitely thought about it. Did my shoulder pop out accidentally as a toddler?  Who’s to say with no witnesses around.

Book Description:
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK AWESOME?
There's an evil queen, a demented father, some amateur boxing and a trailer park story. Even a silver fox makes an appearance. Why wouldn't that entice you?
If you are looking for something different from the rest of the books out there, something that might make you question your sanity then you will love this book.
Seriously! The comedic and sassy perspective will make you see things differently, and you may even find yourself laughing out loud. It's a good story and one that I truly believe needs to be told. Period.
It’s dark, raw and takes you to a door that keeps all my innermost secrets. I hope that the book makes you laugh, makes you cry, and inspires you to be the best version of yourself.

Interview with Kimberly Love 
Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
My inspirations usually come from life. My daughter right now is very inspiring. She is only 11 and she has the mind of an entrepreneur. She’s already Vlogging (under strict supervision) about things that matter to her. It’s so cool to see that happening. There are so many things in life to be inspired by, in everyday things
How did you do research for your book?
There wasn’t a whole lot to research about my book because it’s a memoir. I had to look up a few landmarks, but aside from that, I pretty much knew everything that was going into the book. My next book is a thriller, so I did a lot of research about “detective talk” and what makes a serial killer. One of my close friends is an RCMP, so he helped me with the codes and lingo that detectives use. I researched the stories of a lot of serial killers to determine how their minds worked, that sort of thing.

Do you have another profession besides writing?
No. I’ve been a ghostwriter for 15 years. So that means I write stories for people who can’t and I also run blogs and write articles for companies and businesses. Every day is a new project, but now that I’ve been published, I am looking towards being a fulltime author and ending the ghostwriting at some point.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
I would probably go back to my childhood and shift a few of my dreams so that I could do what I love sooner. I spent a really long time focusing on the wrong things and the wrong people and I would have liked to have found myself sooner.

What is your next project?
Like I said before, I am finishing up a thriller novel that is going to be a series. The series has the same female detective who’s a very human character, someone who makes mistakes but always finds her way. I’m working with an agent on it currently and we are in the editing stage. So, I’m hoping by the new year we can start shopping it to publishers.
