Kim Kavin

Kim Kavin

Kim Kavin has been a word enthusiast ever since her Mom taught her to read. She wrote to the publisher of her first-grade textbook after finding grammar errors, she won the fifth-grade spelling bee, and she was editor of her high school newspaper before graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism. She has earned a living as a full-time writer and editor since 1994, which is about the same time she realized that she could never again eat at restaurants whose menus contain typos. Today, she takes extra care when writing Facebook status updates, since she is friends with her high-school English teachers.

In her spare time, Kim volunteers with dog-rescue organizations and participates in sprint-distance triathlons. She hesitates to call herself a competitor because she almost always brings up the rear, but she does finish every race while wearing Spandex in public, an accomplishment for which she believes women with curves should receive a special medal.

Kim lives in Morris County, New Jersey, about an hour west of Manhattan.
