On this week’s Author Spotlight I would like to welcome Kim Hotzon, author of Hands Full of Ashes. She stopped by to tell us a little bit about herself and her debut novel. Be sure to check it out.
The story was inspired by my trip to Rwanda in October 2012. It is a romantic suspense story that follows one woman as she promises her dying husband that she will scatter his ashes around the world.
Olivia’s journey takes her to Africa, where she begins volunteering at an orphanage in Uganda. As she falls in love with the children, and the culture, the director of the orphanage develops a passion for her.
Just as time begins to heal Olivia’s broken heart, she learns about her husband’s unimaginable betrayal. Fleeing to Rwanda, her soul is reawakened with a new love. Olivia realizes that love always comes with a price, however, when she is faced with a decision she thought she would never have to make.
Hands Full of Ashes is available on Amazon.
Born in beautiful British Columbia, Kim developed a passion for writing at an early age. Her interest in people led her all over the globe, including a two year stay in Japan and a humanitarian trip to Rwanda.
She loves to write romance stories with a twist, usually involving a dangerous and dramatic backdrop. Her first novel, Hands Full of Ashes, was inspired by her trip to Africa.
Kim spent many years teaching young adults with learning disabilities at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and she currently resides in the sunny Okanagan with her husband and two children. When not writing, she can be found plying the local ski hills, or getting lost in her kayak in the surrounding lakes.
