About the Author

K.D. Cross known as Kim lives in Danville Virginia. She was born in the spring of April on the 8th day in 1976. Kim began creative writing in 2015. Calm Night was her stress reliever after a long work night and a quick workout at the gym.

When Kim arrived home she would type. The initial writing of Calm Night was to be a short story. But with each new day Kim fell in love with Calm Night referring to the writing as her first born. Kim would stay awake inside her tiny studio apartment and type until her eyes became heavy with sleep. But that is when Kim's eclectic imagination would explode. She dreamed of Calm Night when she slept. The dreams are now chapters in the book.

Each character was brought to life with what Kim's idea of wholeness, ability and concord is. Kim's political views, opinions of society and her fondest passions were her muse to write Calm Night.

The book cover is Kim's work of art. She named the painting Sisters because both beings are identical but with different dedications toward the same objective.

Kim finished the painting of Sisters in the winter of February on the 1st day of 2015. A few months after in the spring of May on the 15th day Kim began the writing of Calm Night. In the autumn of October on the 28th day in 2019 Kim completed Calm Night. She is happy to share Calm Night with you. From Kim's imagination to your enjoyment.
