About the author:
Kimberly is a Fantasy/Science Fiction Author, Mother of three and a proud Army Wife.

Born and mostly raised in southern California, Kimberly has lived and traveled all over the country and is now a happily converted Texan.

Growing up in the chaos that only comes from having an alcoholic father, at a very young age Kimberly found her escape through reading and eventually realized that creating characters and circumstances was her passion.

Before she could even write, she recorded her stories on an old school tape recorder, and drew pictures to match, and then tried to mail her obvious child crafted fictitious stories off to be published; unknowing that the address her mother gave her was bogus. Needless to say, that endeavor in seeking publication was 'returned to sender', but she did find success later by winning 2nd place for writing her first full-fledged fictional story by pen at her elementary school competition when she was only six years old.

Later, after being homeschooled for the rest of her education, followed by years of putting her true love of writing on hold to join the workforce at the age of 16, Kimberly found love in human form. She married and had her first child when she decided to do what she firmly believes she was created to do; write. Not only to write, but to create stories she hopes the whole world can enjoy, and perhaps give her readers the escape that made her fall in love with writing to begin with.

The Falling
 

Authored by Kimberly Humphreys

Pain, the all over kind that ache's so bad it's nearly agonizing.

Cold, why am I so cold?

Shivering, I faintly hear chirping coming from above me, a sound that would be pleasant if not for the fact that I have been asleep outside, with nothing but the cruelty of pain to cover me. Slowly I open my eyes to come out of the blackness. I see green and brown, tall, wooden above me, thick and moist all around me.

Looking around I know the names of the trees above me, of the sparrow chirping who must have woke me, as well as the dirt below me, but I cannot remember my own...

She knows she should run and that the danger is to the south, but doesn't know why. Driving his '69 Pontiac Trans am south on Angeles Forest Highway Dr. Chimes finds this terrified young girl. Try to unravel her past, as she tries to discover the reason for the innate trust for her rescuer, Dr. Chimes, as they race to get out of California, running from an organism that is destruction incarnate; devouring everything in its path.

Unfold in family dysfunction as Dr. Chimes' mother, Joanne, an anti-feminist chameleon and his half-brother, Darrel, a brash and cynical Marine complicate their journey, as they try to find anywhere that is safe. Brace yourself, because on this ride, nothing seems to survive.

The Falling has a unique flow going from the perspective of two people as they progress from strangers to lovers, capturing the perceptual changes of a man and women as they fall in love, all while the world around them crumbles and falls.
