Kimberly Reid

Young Adult Mystery

How They Came to Us

Kristin met Kim during a pitch appointment at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in 2005. Kim pitched a novel, but what grabbed Kristin’s attention was her mention of a memoir–Kim’s coming-of-age story while her mother was the lead investigator on two cases for the Wayne Williams serial murders. Kristin had to see that one!


Kimberly Reid is the author of the LANGDON PREP mystery series for young adults starring Chanti Evans, a fifteen-year-old girl trying to navigate her new school and solve crimes on the side. Like her main character, Kimberly grew up the daughter of a police detective, attended a prep school where she did not fit in, and always wanted to help her mother solve crimes. She earned a M.A. from The George Washington University and currently lives near Denver, Colorado, where her series is set.
