Kim grew up in the Yukon and moved to Vancouver as a teenager. After getting a Biology/Geology degree from UBC and a Master’s in Mineral Exploration from Queen’s University, she prospected out of Dawson City and optioned properties. Later she became a land claims negotiator before settling down to have a family. She eventually studied writing for film and television at Vancouver Film School and was struck with an idea for a book that expands the work of Joseph Campbell to include a feminine archetype. Published to great reviews in 2010, The Virgin’s Promise: Writing Stories of Feminine, Creative, Spiritual and Sexual Awakening has been developed into a workshop on archetypal leadership. Kim now lives and writes in Whitehorse. You can find Kim at her Virgin’s Promise blog and on Facebook.
