Hey there, I'm Kendra aka Kym Writes!

I'm a storyteller & book-obsessed writer on a mission to create stories and content to uplift and empower & to help others tell their story.

I use this space to share my fiction stories, writing tips, and personal musings to inspire others in their faith, wellness & creative life. 


Welcome to my digital space of inspiration for storytellers, readers, dream chasers, and creatives.

When life happens, it can be hard to make a comeback and move forward. I've been there. Whether you're coping with loss, rebuilding your life, or struggling in your faith or creative life, I designed this space to encourage you to keep going when life happens and to help you rediscover joy and hope through writing, fiction reads, inspirational storytelling, and self-care – mind, body & soul. This is a place to remind you of your why and reignite your passion when you're weary, overwhelmed, and ready to give up.  A place to help you rewrite your story with courage, create meaningful content, and pen words to make an impact. 


Ready to make an impact with your words?  

Storytelling can foster hope and healing and encourage those facing life's challenges. The struggles, pain, light, hope and love in your own story can empower and inspire others to keep pushing forward.  I help writers and creatives discover the healing power of writing and create an impact with their words and story. Let your words become a pathway to someone's breakthrough.

Love to curl up and escape with a good fiction read?    

I write contemporary fiction, drama and short stories to encourage and entertain. Some of my stories explore love and hope found in the dark. My goal as an author is to tell inspirational stories with edge and heart, create relatable characters and help people realize their own strength in the midst of their struggles. Get your read on with one of my bite-sized fiction stories or my upcoming debut novel
