About

Kim Reid grew up in Atlanta, the backdrop of her memoir, No Place Safe. She took a long and winding career path getting here, but "writer" was the answer the first time someone asked what she wanted to be when she grew up. Since publishing No Place Safe, winner of the Colorado Book Award in Creative Nonfiction, Kim has discovered the fun of making things up and writes mysteries for teens under the name Kimberly Reid. Her latest YA novel, PERFECT LIARS, is a Kirkus Reviews best teen book of 2016. She currently lives near Denver but will always call Atlanta home.
