Kim Taylor Blakemore
After writing two critically acclaimed YA historical novels, my mission is to write character-driven adult historical fiction that brings gay women from the shadows of the history.
My interactive historical romances The Very Thought of You, and It Don’t Mean a Thing are forthcoming Spring 2014 from SilkWords.com. I am the author of Bowery Girl, a New York Public Library Best Reads for Teens; Cissy Funk, winner of the WILLA Literary Award for Best Young Adult Fiction; and Side Dish.
In my current work-in-progress, Under the Pale Moon, a woman finds herself torn between her expected role as mother and wife in post-World War II America and an affair with a former lover, an Army combat nurse struggling with PTSD.
I’m a member of the Historical Novel Society, Women Writing the West, and Willamette Writers.
In addition to writing novels, I am a creative writing facilitator for PDX Writers in Portland, Oregon.
