Kim Payne

Born and raised in the Heart of Dixie, Kim’s southern roots run deep in the red clay of Alabama. Daughter of a retired Special Education teacher and current part-time church pianist and a United Methodist lay speaker and sister of a United Methodist minister, her faith runs just as deep. She is a member of Anniston First United Methodist where she sings alto in the chancel choir. She holds a doctorate in audiology (AuD) from the University of Florida and works as a pediatric audiologist for the great state of her birth. When not knee deep in clinic reports, hearing aid order forms, or choir rehearsals, Kim is working on completing her first novel–a contemporary suspense liberally sprinkled with humor and a good-sized dollop of romance–tentatively titled Broken Chord.
