Kimberley Woodhouse is a wife, mother, author, and musician with a quick wit and positive outlook despite difficult circumstances. A popular speaker, she’s shared at more than 800 venues across the country. Kimberley and her family’s story have garnered national media attention for many years, but most recently her family was chosen for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Montel Williams Show, and Discovery Health channel’s Mystery ER. Her story, Welcome Home: Our Family’s Journey to Extreme Joy, released from Tyndale House Publishers in September, 2009 and a new suspense series, written with daughter Kayla, begins with No Safe Haven and Race Against Time, releasing in March and November 2011. Kimberley lives, writes, and homeschools in Colorado with her husband and two children in their truly ‘extreme’ home.
Thirteen-year-old Kayla Woodhouse’s zest for writing comes not only from her natural ability, but also from her love of the written word as witnessed by her voracious reading appetite. She has appeared on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Montel Williams Show, Mystery ER, and numerous other national programs and has also been featured in newspapers and magazines. Through a life of extreme hardships, her ever-present smile encourages others to pursue their dreams, no matter the obstacles. In addition to being homeschooled and writing with her mom, she’s an amazing swimmer, and spends up to thirty hours a week in training. No Safe Haven, her first release from B&H Publishers in 2011, makes her the youngest author to have a full-length novel published by a royalty-paying publisher.
