Author Biography

I have always enjoyed reading books, but within the last five years discovered my passion for creating stories of my own. Ever since childhood, I dreamt of writing a novel, but never took the time to actually write. When my daughter reached her teenage years, I found my reason to start composing those stories.

I worked for fifteen years as a Registered Nurse before hanging-up my stethoscope. Now, I run my own business while continuing to write during any downtime.

I’m blessed with a wonderful husband and two children. The dynamics in our household changed when my oldest left for college, but I can’t say it was bad. Different, but definitely not bad. Each stage of life has been amazing, as to which I’m truly grateful.

Deceptions – The Mystical Encounter Series Book 2 by Kimberly Readnour is centred on the life of seventeen-year-old Heather. The storyline follows her life as a girlfriend, a daughter, a friend of a detective, and a clairvoyant. Heather is able to see visions concerning whoever has touched her and whilst some visions prove harmless, others prove the exact opposite: dangerous. Soon, Heather finds that the roles she plays in life come crashing together. With a catastrophic secret she is keeping from her boyfriend, Barry, the unexpected arrival of a family member, and criminals she personally knows being brought to light, will it prove all too much for Heather?

I thoroughly enjoyed Deceptions – The Mystical Encounter Series Book 2 simply because of Kimberly Readnour’s effortless writing skills. Her words flow so fluently throughout the entire novel, it didn't feel as if I was reading, but rather watching the characters' lives in my mind. Readnour's writing was detailed enough without having to add irrelevant details and scenes, and I applaud her for not building an overwhelming and suffocating storyline. Another thing Readnour did fantastically well was develop her main character, Heather. Heather manages to perfectly add normalcy to her supernatural gift; you read the novel and you believe Heather is just an average girl, and that having visions caused by a touch is plausible. Deceptions is superb in my eyes as it held the right level of romance, the right level of adventure, and the perfect level of suspense. I would highly recommend this novel.
