Kimberly Reid currently lives near Denver, Colorado, but her roots are firmly planted in Georgia clay, and she still calls Atlanta home. She is the author of several critically acclaimed YA mysteries in addition to the Colorado Book Award-winning memoir No Place Safe, which has been optioned for film by 12 Years a Slave director, John Ridley. Most of Reid’s family is in the crime-fighting business; her mother was a homicide detective, and her husband runs a city courtroom, so she can’t help but write crime fiction, knowing she’ll never run out of stories.
