Hi there. I’m Joanne Kimm, the author of George: A Memoir, our story about pet loss, and Picture Me This!, a fun photo-visual puzzle book.

Right now I’m excited to announce that my new novel, The Enforcer’s Tale, is in the hands of my wonderful publisher and will be available later in 2023. I’m also working on a new murder-mystery series, which I hope you will enjoy. If you want to be among the first to know when my new books launch, sign up for my newsletter below, or follow my blog through the link in the menu.

And, if you know anyone struggling with the grief of pet loss, I’ll be setting up classroom and library workshops for children (or grown ups) to discuss strategies for coping and getting through this difficult time. Use the contact form to reach out if you want to learn more.


It’s Almost Here! The Enforcer’s Tale

My new YA Dystopian, coming-of-age novel, The Enforcer’s Tale, is the story of Joseph, a thirteen-year-old boy taken from his family and groomed to become an Enforcer for the brutal Coalition. When suddenly thrust into the role as leader of the Coalition, Joseph makes some shocking discoveries and must make a choice that pits his beliefs of right and wrong against people he most loves and admires–including his own mother.

Pre-order for The Enforcer’s Tale begins soon. Sign up for my newsletter below to make sure you don’t miss out, or read more about The Enforcer’s Tale–and all my books–here.

Having a pet isn’t always easy, but it’s especially hard at the end. George: A Memoir explores not just a special cat but also his relationship with us, and how we worked through his passing as a family. A wonderful book for children who may be dealing with the pain of losing a beloved pet for the first time, George helps people of all ages work through the grief of pet loss.

please note: Picture Me This is part of Kindle Unlimited. You will need to be a KU subscriber to purchase the ebook. The paperback version, however, is available for everyone from the outlets above!

Do you love visual mysteries? Then Picture Me This! is for you. It includes 62 pages of puzzles that test your ability to guess what you’re looking at based on a fraction of the whole. Not only are things not always what they seem, sometimes they’re downright unimaginable! This is a great gift for the puzzle-lover in your life–you’ll never look at some things the same way again.
