Kimball Pier

Writer's workshop 2005, 2011, 2015

Her memoir, Killing Penelope – A daughter’s Memoir of Failed Rescues, was published in August of 2017 by Lucky Bat Books. Killing Penelope is a true story about a girl’s devotion to her mother Penelope, a wild and eccentric woman who held a shotgun with more comfort than she held her baby girl. When Penelope became seriously ill, Kimball’s life became frightening and unpredictable. The author gives a beautiful portrayal of her experience of retrieving humor, grace, and gratitude from the rubble of despair and loss.
