Kimberly Ito is an author, editor, and semi-professional fangirl, wreaking havoc on the internet since 1990-something. She writes adult, NA, and YA fiction that tends to feature angst and unconventional beauty. Beyond that, anything goes.
Kimberly was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia, and graduated from USC. She has lived in Japan since 2003, and currently resides just outside of Tokyo with her husband, children, and a spoiled Shiba Inu. She is proud to be a naturalized Japanese citizen.
In addition to writing, Kimberly has experience teaching English as a foreign language and working in a variety of shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. She secretly loves those minimum-wage jobs and just wished they paid enough to live on. She currently works as a freelance editor, proofreader, and translator.
