Kimberly Smith

Kimberly Smith, who writes poetry under the pen name JustasPoetic, has always used writing as a form of self-expression. It wasn’t until an 8th grade Creative Writing class that she realized that she had a passion for writing short stories and poetry. From then to now, she has been committed to pursuing her life-long dream to become an author. The publication of her first book, “Pieces of My Reflection” in 2016, was a dream come true. With her first writing project complete, she has now turned her attention to her second love, children’s books. She founded Peppermint Publishing in 2015 and has been working diligently on a series of books for ages 4-8, inspired by her 3 children.

Kimberly was born and raised in Mississippi, but moved to Indianapolis, IN in 2000. She is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan

University and owns a company called Eskay Footprints, LLC, which provides virtual bookkeeping services to small businesses, non-profit organizations, and churches. Kimberly continues to reside in Indianapolis with her husband, Sherwin Jr., and their 3 children, Kyndal, Saniya, and Sherwin III.
