Kimberly Vale

YA Fantasy Author


Kimberly Vale is a reader, a bit of a hopeless romantic, and started writing on Wattpad as a teen. In the years since then, she has accumulated millions of reads online and has volunteered her time to mentorship programs and other efforts in the writing community. With a BA in Education, Kimberly teaches remediation and dyslexia intervention in public schools and lives in Arkansas with her husband, two children, and two dogs. She also enjoys playing video games, trying new recipes, and coming up with ridiculous theories about her current tv-obsessions.

Her debut novel, CROSSBONES, will be published by Wattpad Books, distributed by Macmillan in the US and by Raincoast Books in Canada.

Crossbones, debuting October 5, 2021

When the pirate king dies without an heir, captains compete for the island throne in a deadly treasure hunt in this YA pirate fantasy in the vein of Six Of Crows and Seafire.
