A New Novel by Kim E. Wilson

Hi Everyone, I’m excited to launch my very first novel, Bird. Writing has always been a passion of mine. As a middle school language arts teacher, I’ve used publishing in the classroom to show students just how powerful the written word can be. I finally took my own advice and published a story that has been on my bucket list for a very long time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed writing Bird.

See What People are Saying about Bird

★★★★★ Surprise ending…engaging story.

I have to admit that I love stories that piece the story together using flashbacks. Bird does this and does it well. Tiny, seemingly inconsequential clues from the flashbacks move the story along quickly leaving the reader feeling like they are discovering two stories. By the end of the book, I cared as much for Ellen the child as I did Ellen the woman. Well done…great way to spend a morning of my Labor Day weekend.

★★★★★ Absolutely riveting!

This book grabbed me from the very beginning! I couldn’t put it down and devoured this book in two days. I needed to know the answer to this mystery. The characters came alive and I felt their pain, their frustration and shared their shock at the end. I highly recommend this book! I have found a new favorite author and can’t wait to see what Ms Wilson will come out with next!!

★★★★★ Couldn’t put it down!

★★★★★ WOW!

Added this book to a pile I wanted to read while in medical recovery….Started at 10:30a finished at 2:30p. A huge fan of murder mysteries….I had to know what happened! Great job! Please write another one!!!! The transitioning between the three time periods was amazing. Didn’t skip beat! LOVED IT!!!!!

★★★★★ A good mystery and a quick read.

This was a great book, easy read, relatable characters, good mystery and kept me reading. The ending was enticing, one mystery solved, a new one to think about.

★★★★★ Loved it!

I started this book yesterday morning and finished it this afternoon! I was so sure I knew what was going on, but still had to keep going, then the surprise ending!

This book is one of best I have read. Realistic dialog, descriptive characters, and true to life scenes that reminded me of the times I grew up in.
