On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.

Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.

When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.

Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.

By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.

Kim once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.

An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17 year old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it’s not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can’t escape. And Then He is available now through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall will debut November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017.

When she’s not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snow drifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She’s careful to avoid trees.

 
 
Excerpt ~
 

As we canoe back to the opposite shore, we crack jokes about the old troll the entire ride. When we reach the shore, I step out of the canoe, take my shirt off, and dive into the water. The cold water blasts any remaining nerves out of me. When I come up for air, Christian’s eyes are wide with surprise. I remember the bikini I have on and become very self-conscious, but I have such a high from swimming, I don’t want to kill my buzz. I put my hands on my hips. “What?”

“I…, I,” he stutters at a loss for words. “You just dove in and disappeared. You surprised me.”

I wink at him. “I’m full of surprises.”

“Evidently.” He smiles and dives in the water. I take a guess when he’s coming up for air and dive in the opposite direction. When I can’t swim any farther, I lift my head. He grins at me and dives again. We play this cat and mouse game for a while, until my laughing makes it impossible to swim any distance.

He grabs me around the waist. “Gotcha!”

Electricity pulses through the water between us. Does he feel this too? I shyly look up at him. Yes, yes he does.

Floating in the water, times stands still. Staring into each other eyes, the tension returns. Is he going to kiss me? I think he’s going to kiss me. I want him to kiss me… I shiver.

“You’re cold,” he whispers.

I shake my head in denial, but the goose bumps give me away. He smiles and pulls me to shore. Strike two. Way to go, Starr. Way to go.

Reluctant to leave, I stand at the water’s edge watching the late day sun. The damp sand between my toes helps calm my racing heart. He wraps a towel around my shoulders and whispers, “Later.”

Later. One little word with so much promise.
