About Me

My photo
I grew up in San Francisco, but now live in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande with my husband and sons. I think I've drunk so much Land of Enchantment water that some of that ancient magic got into my blood and now spurts out my pencil--I mean ergonomic keyboard. I adore Louisiana, Paris, Bulgaria, England, Scotland, Egypt, and anything old and musty with a secret story to tell. I make way too many cookies when I'm writing or revising a new book - and I've got the best book trailers in the universe - for reals! Check them out here: www.kimberleygriffithslittle.com.

Happy Birthday, FIREFLIES!!!

Today, my new Middle-Grade novel, THE TIME OF THE FIREFLIES is officially out in the world! 

I loved writing this book for so many reasons . . . the mystery and suspense, of course, but also weaving in time-slipping going back into Larissa Renaud's past for 5 generations, and featuring the strong women who are her ancestors. (I admit that the generational time-weaving scenes sometimes made me tear my hair out!)

The story revolves around an old plantation house first built before the Civil War on a bayou island and the heirloom doll that affects each girl beginning in 1912 and ending in the present day. Larissa must figure out how to break the family curse before she loses her Mamma and her baby sister. 

Of course, there's a beautiful doll with icy blue eyes, a curse, a lost fortune, and a family in crisis. 

For the next week I'll be regaling you with quotes from the book - to whet your appetite!  Here's the first one! Created by Jan Lewis of Author Sidekick.
