Kim Long loves to write stories with a sense of adventure, a dash of magic, and a hint of science. Her debut novel, Lexi Magill and the Teleportation Tournament, was released on October 1, 2019, by Running Press Kids, and is on the 2021-2022 Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List. She currently resides in Illinois, and when she’s not writing you can find her riding along bike trails, playing board games, or tackling her ever expanding to-be-read list.
