Author Kimberly Zant was first published by Harlequin Enterprises in 1994 under the pen name of Madris Dupree after nearly a decade of ‘apprenticeship’ --struggling to learn the business, the marketing, and the writing skills necessary for a career in commercial fiction. That ‘first’ published book, a historical, (which was actually her fourth attempt at a marketable piece of fiction) was successful, however, selling nearly 80,000 copies in the U.S., Switzerland, France, and the U.K.
Kimberly has a wide variety of interests. She writes various genres (or sub-genres since she always writes romance!) under different pen names. Kim Zant is the author name used for steamy to erotic Contemporary Romance.
