Kim Boykin learned about women and their hair in her mother's beauty shop in a tiny South Carolina town. She loves to write stories about strong Southern women, because that's what she knows. Kim is an accomplished public speaker, serves on the board of the South Carolina Writer's Workshop, and edits the organization's monthly newsletter. She lives with her husband, three dogs, and 126 rose bushes. Visit her website to learn more about her second passion after writing, food.
"As we've long suspected our hair can define us. It can also teach
us things about ourselves that will surprise and change us. The
Wisdom of Hair is a lovely, engaging novel! Zora Adams is a
heroine to root for!"--Wendy Wax
"The Wisdom of Hair has a big beating heart, and I couldn't put it down. What I loved best about the book was the pervasive kindness; page after page, good people try their best, sometimes succeeding, and sometimes failing. It's hard to write an engaging novel about (mostly) nice people, but Kim Boykin has pulled it off."--Ann Napolitano
