From early in life, Kimbra Swain was indoctrinated in the ways of geekdom. Raised on Star Wars, Tolkien, Superheroes, and Voltron, she found herself immersed in a world of imagination. She started writing in high school and completed her English degree from the University of Alabama in 2003.

Her writing is influenced by a gamut of authors including Jane Austen, J.R.R. Tolkien, L.M. Montgomery, Timothy Zahn, Kathy Reichs, Kevin Hearne, and Jim Butcher.

Born and raised in Alabama, Kimbra still lives there with her husband, daughter, and two dogs. When she isn’t reading or writing, she plays PC games, makes jewelry, and listens to music.

Kimbra is the creator of the Delta Underground Operatives shared world and one of the twelve authors writing books in the DUO universe. Her upcoming novel, Consuming Wind, is the third book to launch in the DUO world. Learn more about the DUO project and Kimbra’s book at the official DUO Facebook Page!
