Featured Interview With Kimberly Thomas
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in rural Tallahassee, Florida in an area known as Lake Hall. I currently reside in Tallahassee, Florida. I have no pets.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My fascination with books started with catalogs and National Geographic magazines when I was about seven years old. Looking through these magazines I could travel the world in the finest clothes. I begin writing poetry and journaling at the age of 15. My passion for writing intensified after I entered a poetry contest and my piece was selected and published in a book of poetry in the Library of Congress. Since my teenage years I have written and published a number of books and manuals.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Some of my favorite authors are Alice Walker, Iyanla Vanzant, Brian P. Moran and Michael L. Lennington. I love to read and I find myself reading different genres of books. However if I had to choose a favorite genre I would say inspirational and empowering books. I love books that challenge me to become a better version of me while challenging my mind to take a deeper look within. My inspiration to write comes from LIFE! and life’s lessons. The things that I have lived, walked through and overcome. But if I had to name a person I would say my husband because he is my motivational/inspirational pusher and number one cheerleader. He always encourages me to go forth.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is entitled “Freed From Broken Beginnings” it takes the readers on a journey through my life as an incest, rape, and domestic violence survivor to a free, healed, and delivered woman of God who was called, predestined and ordained from her mother’s womb to preach the word of God giving sight to the spiritually blind, and setting the captive free.
It took me nearly 4 decades to finish writing this book and get a release from the Spirit of the Lord to publish it. In writing “Freed From Broken Beginnings” the Lord allowed me to be very transparent in order to bring forth deliverance in the lives of other women who maybe suffering in Silence. The TRUTH is some times hard to face and admit but please believe that once it has been told TRUTH is liberating.
