Literature. It opens doors. It opens the world to us. Literature takes us to a Quidditch match at Hogwarts, drops us into a trench during World War I, carries us to a deserted island where young boys have their humanity tested, or to the door of 22 Baker Street. Whether fiction or real, literature takes us to places we could never go ourselves. It invites us to step into another’s shoes. It broadens our minds and takes us on fabulous journeys. Literature opens our hearts and our souls to new adventures, new understandings, and new realities. Without literature, the world would be a smaller place. Dive in.

My name is Kim Allred. Welcome to my eclectic world.

I’m a genre writer. It’s what I love. I travel the hero’s journey, or reap redemption, or explore the work of karma – what you put out in the world is what you will receive – eventually. This is the place you can escape from reality, to journey to a different time, a different place, or to just slide into someone else’s shoes…if you dare.

Literacy and Education

I hold a strong belief that education and literacy can solve many of the world’s woes. I believe it can lift us to new heights, to be more caring of the world and people around us. I believe it can stop wars and strengthen democracy. I believe it can stabilize the world economy. I believe there isn’t anything that can’t be achieved through literacy and education.

I hope you can find inspiration from my Literacy Links.

If you’re a writer, write. If you’re an explorer, explore. If you love the journey, take the first step.
