When you use your dollars to purchase books, movies, or any other form of entertainment you influence the world. Our purchases of clean and inspirational work support authors who write well-told stories and inspirational books. Together, authors and readers can create change and make a statement. Light the world with books.
Every Thursday, I feature authors who are committed to writing only clean or inspirational books. This books cover drew me right in! Kimberly King is the author of, “The Trouble with Fairy Godmothers,” the first of two books in the Magical Troubles series. I asked her why she is committed writing clean fiction and she said:
“I believe that books should inspire people to becoming better versions of themselves, and to help them see how much good is inside them. I believe what someone writes is a reflection of who they are, and I never want to betray the trust of my loved ones. My books will never be above PG, because I want everyone to be able to read and enjoy them.”
I asked Kimberly to tell me a little bit about herself. She said:
“I love fairy tales and I love stories with little bits of magic. My favorite books are “The Chocolate Touch” and “The Truth Cookie.” Aside from reading and writing, I enjoy long drives through the country, chasing thunderstorms with my family, and watching sappy Hallmark movies. My dream is to travel to Antarctica someday.”
I also asked her if she had any favorite Christmas traditions and she did! Check out this delicious recipe.
Here is my family’s absolute favorite dinner. It’s the only food EVERYONE agrees on, and it’s on my menu every single month. It’s probably one of the few recipes I can make by heart now, haha!

About the book! “The Trouble with Fairy Godmothers,” the first of two books in the Magical Troubles series.
“The Trouble with Fairy Godmothers” is the first of two books in the Magical Troubles series.
All Nikki Baker wants is her first kiss. All her fairy godmother wants is to get the job done as quickly as possible. Hilarious adventures follow when Nikki discovers her fairy godmother’s magic isn’t quite up to par…along with her taste in boys. Nobody is safe as spells bounce around from the school’s biggest nerd to the biggest jerk in ninth grade, and everyone else in between. As love triangles grow ridiculously complicated, Nikki soon discovers that being a boy magnet has its downside. One best friend starts hating her, and another stops at nothing to prevent Nikki from getting her happily ever after. Is love really worth the cost of friendship? Nikki must decide for herself, but that means betraying either her best friends…or her impatient fairy godmother.
