Sharisse Kimbro was born in Dayton, Ohio, and she knew at an early age that she wanted to express herself through writing. At seven, Kimbro’s book of poems, The Best of Me, became her first published work with the help of her mother. Though life’s many twists and turns have ensued since then, her passion for putting life into words was never lost.
Kimbro earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English and Sociology from Stanford University and a law degree from the University of Michigan. She enjoyed a successful career in the public and private sectors and as a freelance writer for many years until starting a family and eventually transitioning to working from home.
Kimbro now resides in Chicago with her family and has started a sequel to Beyond the Broken while working a full-time job. Her aim is to ultimately becoming a full-time writer.
