Hi, I'm Kimberly.
I'm thirty (an old fujoshi, yikes) and I'm currently a student at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, majoring in communications. I also hold an associate's degree in legal assisting. Working with a manga company is one of my preferred future occupations, so this is a great opportunity for me! I've enjoyed manga for over ten years, and it's been great seeing the selection go from a few books hidden away in a corner of the bookstore to a section spanning several tall shelves with hundreds of volumes in most stores.
I've been a writer the majority of my life. I learned to read when I was four, and started writing a few years later. In elementary school I was an über-geek winning lots of spelling bees and creative writing contests. In high school I was a volunteer librarian (our school was too small to hire a real one), an office assistant, the go-to computer geek (teachers would call me out of class to fix things) and on the yearbook staff. I also enjoy art, though I'm not nearly at the level I'd like to be. I recently started a webcomic. If you want to check out my artwork, my DeviantArt is a good place to start: http://trafficcontrol.deviantart.com
I proofread and edit VERY quickly. My typing speed is somewhere around 65 wpm. My grammar-nazi badge of honor is that I made an 800 on the SAT English section (perfect score.) The math half of the test, well, not so good.
I've had some writing published in the Chattanooga Times Free Press - I did music reviews for a while on a voluntary basis while I was working in their advertising department. I take my work very seriously and I'm good with deadlines. I'm also online a lot, so I respond to e-mail quickly. Let me know if you'd like to team up with me! I also don't mind being the group representative, if needed. Thanks!
