About the Author:

When Kim Tomsic was a kid, she wished for rollerskates, a racetrack, and the ability to fly. Her wishes came true! The rollerskates showed up with a big red bow; the SpeedTrax slot car racetrack was owned by her brother (thankfully he shared); and flying…well, if she squeezed her eyes tight enough, a good bounce on the trampoline felt as magical as a set of wings. Kim still loves wishing at 11:11 from her home in Boulder, CO, which she shares with her husband, two children, and two dogs. Kim is the author of The 11:11 Wish, a 2018 middle grade novel. She also has two picture books releasing with Chronicle in 2019 and 2020. She is also the Co-Regional Advisor for the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
