Kim Strattford, Hopeless Romantic

Last Updated 8 August 2016

Hi and welcome to my page.
I'm a transplanted Seattleite who's lived in Northern Virginia for nearly three decades.
I just started writing romances professionally,
but I've been shipping characters in fanfic since 1999 and writing speculative fiction professionally since 2004.
Kim Strattford is my pen name for Romance. If you are interested in other types of fic,
check out Gerri Leen's website

Favorite Places

What do you need to know about me other than I write romances? I love animals and I love to shop. Here are a few of my favorite places:

Friends of Homeless Animals One of my favorite rescue orgs, helping place animals in the D.C. metro area, and located in Northern Virginia. One of the few with its own shelter facilities.

Dalhart Animal Welfare Group. A great organization in Texas that brings schoolkids and animal rescue together. They've placed a ton of animals and helped young ones learn the value of saving lives.

Zappos. First just shoes, then handbags and now a lot of things. I'm a VIP so I get overnight everytime but during the non holiday season, they often bump regular orders to overnight. They have huge selection and one of the best websites as far as actually seeing the product from all views. Love them!
