"A true love was born when my grandmother told me that someone should write her life story in 1993. Who would have thought it would be me? Now six novels later I am still writing." Kim Robinson was raised in Los Angeles, California. Her first book "The Roux in the Gumbo" is a historical novel. It explores the adventures of her family in Lake Charles, Louisiana. You share their experiences from the 1800's to the 20th century through slavery, reconstruction and the prohibition eras. Her next book "Street Life to Housewife" is a generational sequel that revisits the characters that you grew to love in "The Roux in the Gumbo". Kim also has 2 cookbooks available on Kindle, "Food For The Soul - Recipes from around the World" and "Sweet Satisfaction - Desserts and Drinks". "My newest book is very exciting, as it is the first totally fiction book for me. The Civil Right to Love is about a Black woman who is attracted to a White man in the 1940's in California when interracial relationships were taboo." She resides in Texas with her husband and children. When I am not writing, I am reading or watching movies. I am currently taking a script writing course in hopes of bringing my work to the screen. I am a motivational speaker, seamstress and sewing instructor. Visit me at www.kim-robinson.com.
