I'm A City Mom and an author. I live in Chicago with my husband, three kids, two cats and one dog. I've written two novels, Down at the Golden Coin and Wish Club; more information on my books is available below or on my website, www.kimstrickland.com. When I'm not being a mom or a writer, I fly 767's for a major airline, which means, every now and then, I get to eat an entire meal sitting down.

Or, if you're a traditionalist, get the paperback at the Eckhartz Press store:
From Kirkus Reviews: Strickland, in her second novel, effectively combines the earnestness of Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life with the didactic voice of The Secret. With its timely, relatable story peppered liberally with pop-culture references and religious conviction, Strickland’s novel should strike a chord with readers who will relate to Annie’s struggles and search for a happier future.
A lesson in faith and the power of positive thinking, all nestled within a satisfying story.
From Publishers Weekly: The five middle-aged Chicago women of Strickland's debut turn their book club into a monthly spellcasting session that seems harmless at first. But as the "wishes" get more involved--Claudia desperately wants a baby; Lindsay believes that losing weight will help her become influential with her socialite friends; Jill hesitantly asks for the perfect man; Gail would like some free time away from her three kids; Mara wants financial freedom--things go awry.
Strickland, who pilots a Boeing 767 for a living, gives her five passengers a naivety of witchcraft and strength of character that charms.
