The Real Stuff
My fiction explores the intersection of dark realms and light forces in the form of the mystical and the romantic, obscure shadows, violence and blood–lusty thirst.
Sometimes its brutal. Other times, I might even get a laugh out of you. In bad taste, of course.
My nonfiction work? Well, I like to delve pretty deep. Whether writing about alternative practices for life and craft, spirituality, relationships and love, or creating articles for my Medium readers, I like to get to the meat & gravy – what it means to live passionately, love fiercely and with purpose today. Basically, a focus on the real stuff.
What does it mean to be truly you? To live your truths? Love deeply?
I’m still trying to figure it all out.
Sometimes I write about sexuality, too. But I’m no pro.
“Kim is an amazing writer. Throughout my collaboration with Ms. Petersen, I have found her to be professional, caring and empathetic. I can’t wait to see the end result of our co-writing venture – the memoir that Kim’s been helping me write.
I know with her writing talent, she will help me immensely to put forth a book that I can be proud of. A book worth reading.”
~ L. Larson – Co-writing Client
“Kim is a great project leader. I have worked on two book projects with Kim Petersen, as well as a weekly podcast we did for 6 months.
Her organisational skills are excellent and she clearly articulates time tables and requirements. She endeavours to always use software that is easy-to-use and functional for groups so that everyone has access to everything.
Along with excellent project management, Kim is understanding, flexible and open to discussion. She makes suggestions but is always willing to change to suit all. This has occurred with time, targets, financial commitments, word counts, story ideas, etc.
Kim has been honest and fair in all my dealings with her. She is a professional, productive collaborator, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her.”
~ Catherine Evans – Author and Co-writer
“One of the most passionate and hard-working creative professionals I’ve ever had the pleasure of collaborating with…
Kim not only loves what she does, she works tirelessly to ensure that she produces and delivers work that is of exceptional quality, and she cares deeply about the impact the message has on those it reaches, as well as the people she’s working with along the way.
Whether it’s brainstorming fresh ideas or identifying solutions, she’s always up for the challenge, offering thoughtful, engaging, and insightful feedback and input, going above and beyond to ensure the end product — no matter what it is — is the very best it can be.
One of the things I admire about her the most is that while she is extremely talented, she remains genuine and true to who she is — without ego, attitude or putting on airs. Kim is open and honest and always at the ready to offer encouragement and guidance — or that gentle nudge to push you outside your comfort zone when warranted. Mind you, she leads by example, so you can’t help but want to, just by being in her presence.
Kim embodies what it means to be a true creative professional and I’m not only grateful (and more than a bit humbled) to have been able to work alongside her, I’m honored to call her my friend.”
~ Harley Christensen – Author
