About Kimberly:

Kimberly Carlton is an Associate Acquisitions Editor in the HCCP family, where she’s been since 2016. She grew up in sub-Saharan Africa and moved to the States when she began her undergraduate degree at Ouachita Baptist University. From there, she moved to Chicago to pursue an MA degree in Biblical Exegesis at Wheaton College. Upon completion of her degree, she was invited to return to teach at OBU. She thoroughly enjoyed her two years of teaching, but loves working collaboratively with the stellar team at HCCP and helping stories become the best that they can be. She has a lifelong love of reading, grammar, and languages of all kinds. Despite being bitten by a cheetah at age eleven, she retained her love of animals and now shares her home with her three year old German Shepherd puppy, Percy.
