Thanks for visiting my site! I’m Kimberly Tso, and I’m an author of children’s books. Books have been steadfast friends, lifesavers, and bridges to safe and joyful spaces. I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity and privilege to do this work.

I have some exciting news, but I can’t share it just yet. Subscribe below to my newsletter to get the announcement. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and PencilBooth.

I write books that celebrate the cleverness of children. I was a finalist for Storyteller Academy’s Manuscript Showcase in 2023, a runner up for #PBRisingStars 2023 mentorship program, and a finalist for We Need Diverse Books’ 2023 mentorship program. I’m an active member of SCBWI SoCal and SCBWI LA. I live with my partner and two daughters in Los Angeles, CA.

I love the challenge of writing complex ideas in an accessible way. I also like to draw, paint, and collage. The Procreate illustrations on this website were made by me.

You may contact me through my literary agent, Savannah Brooks at KT Literary, or by using the contact form here.
