Kimberly Karalius is the author of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters and its sequel Love Charms and Other Catastrophes. If you gave her a wish bone, she would wish fervently for snow in Florida. Living in Florida certainly has one big perk: going to Disney World. Which she does. Frequently. 

Kimberly holds an MFA in fiction from the University of South Florida. Her fiction has appeared in literary journals such as Luna Station Quarterly, The Medulla Review, and Hogglepot. Her chapbook, Pocket Forest, was published by Deathless Press in August 2013.

  7. In case Florida decides to deviate from its usual sticky hot weather year-round, Kim has plenty of scarves, mittens, and knitted hats.
