Kimberly Gabriel is an English teacher who writes every chance she gets and struggles with laundry avoidance issues. She is also the author of Every Stolen Breath, a YA thriller (and her 2016 Pitch Wars manuscript) that released with Blink/HarperCollins in November 2019. When she’s not teaching or writing, she’s enjoying life with her husband, her three children, and a very energetic black lab in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Kimberly is represented by Jennifer Herrera at the David Black Agency.
