FINDING KYLIE





 As my publisher and I have finally parted ways, this is the second printing of FINDING KYLIE.  Make sure to look for the correct version on Amazon for paperback and kindle.

The synopsis for FINDING KYLIE is as follows: 

What if ... after laying your mother to rest, the mother who has been the only real family you ve ever known, you discover her secretive past in a set of hidden journals? 


What would you do if she was the only link to the father you never knew? A father you'd been told was dead, but was indeed very much alive... 

Twenty-five year old Chastity searches through her mother's belongings in hopes of finding any shred of evidence that leads to her father ... a man, she'd always felt was out there ... somewhere. 

Any glimmer of hope is dashed when she reads one tiny line scrawled across the back page of her mother's notebook. One traumatic sentence is all it takes to unravel her life long desire in a matter of seconds. Chastity uncovers the sordid truth, a truth that her mom, Kylie, tried to hide at all costs. This newfound information plunges Chastity into a new world of control, power, and hurt. 

With the help of her mother s best friend and a handsome attorney, hired before her mother's death, Chastity sorts her way through her new found family ties and the costs that come with it.


Acclaim for Finding Kylie


“Finding Kylie is an excellent first novel from novelist, Kimberly McKay.

It is a great story, told in an extremely innovative way … combining flashback, past narrative via a journal and first person narrative internal thought. These all combine to keep the story building in pace and intensity throughout the book. And the emotional turmoil of both the protagonist and her deceased mother (told through a diary) are deftly handled.

What I enjoyed most about this novel was how easy of a read it was, the characters were well thought through and the fact that the story is told through the aforementioned variety of techniques.

The end of the novel is left sufficiently open enough to expect a follow up. I hope there is one, as I personally look forward to this burgeoning talent bloom into a wonderfully accomplished novelist with a fantastically unique voice.”

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
