Kimberly Lyn Kane is an American writer and editor who lives with her husband, son, two cats, and two aquariums of fish in Stockholm, Sweden. She grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, reading Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie and enjoying school, especially any subjects that had to do with language or history.
Kimberly earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology/anthropology from Millersville University and a master’s degree in the social sciences from the University of Chicago. Since then, she’s moved a lot, working first as an ethnographic interviewer and historical researcher in Texas; then as a writer in Germany; and finally as a scientific editor, writer, and teacher of scientific communication in Sweden. Right now she spends her time working with internal and external scientific communication at a research center in Stockholm.
For more than ten years, Kimberly has been writing short stories and novels, honing a craft that proved much harder than she expected when she first put fingers to keyboard. She keeps at it for many reasons, but the bottom line is she can’t seem to stop.
