ABOUT ME

Welcome! Most importantly of all, I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who is checking out the KIMBER series and all things L.K. Hingey! I have not always been a writer, and have taken quite an interesting path to get here! 

*

When I was 17, I enlisted in the United States Army out of Detroit, Michigan. My passion was rotary-wing aviation and I worked as a helicopter mechanic while I pursued my degree in Aeronautics. I was blessed to receive a flight scholarship, and became a private & commercial helicopter pilot before graduating from the University of North Dakota. I commissioned as an active duty Army officer in the spring of 2012, and was sent from the great tundra of the north, to the white sand beaches of the south.

 This is where my story takes its first big turn. While transitioning to flying the uniquely large helicopters of the military, I incurred irreversible damage to my spine. Fractures were diagnosed in my lower back, and it was clear I would never fly again.

If we allow them to, sometimes our greatest disappointments can become the catalyst for new achievement, adventure, and growth. After I separated from the Army, I took a five-month backpacking trip with my husky, Colefax, to reflect on life and reconnect with who I was apart from the military. I jumped headfirst in my passions, which to this day include coaching fitness as a certified personal trainer, real estate, writing, and enjoying life with my amazing better-half (who is a still an active-duty U.S. Army helicopter pilot) and our two dogs.

Thanks again for being a part of the journey and I am SO excited to announce that Kimber: Book II of the Elyrian Chronicles is on track to debut in June of 2021!

 

 

PS: Do you life house-flipping stories/ photos? If you do, you won't want to miss this crazy video of my latest renovation project!

((It was a three-story, top-to-bottom reno that took me TWO YEARS!))
