Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a wonderful, very talented writer. It really touched me. Thank you much for so many wonderful hours of enjoyment." -- Elaine, a 69 year old women reader

"...captured the emotions of the moment, and put realistic, human hearts into its characters, unlike anything I've ever read." -- Eric Long, Feature Writer for The Sun Gazette, Williamsport, PA

"You have captured too much of my youth, my friend. Thanks again for a marvelous literary experience." -- Michael Lynch, Owner of Michael's Shop

In all my years of reading, reading, reading, I never remember hitting a storyline even remotely similar to this one! -- B. Fry, teacher

Ms. Leigh captures the emotions of the moment and puts realistic, human hearts into its characters. I loved it! -- E. Long, feature writer

Ms. Leigh succeeds in creating the tension and anticipation we've all come to expect from novels of this type. -- ND Wiseman, author of "The Seven Waiting Worlds", editor

From the Publisher

"With a Stroke of the Pen" by Kimbra Leigh is printed as a high-quality, 6x9 trade paperback. The cover and binding have been produced to hold up under wear, and the pages and type font are easy on the eyes.

The main character depicted on the cover is Kimbra Leigh's mother, Dee, and the face in the window is a photo of Kimbra when she was twenty. The book was self-published to fulfill a promise Kimbra made to a passed on friend, Joseph Dalrymple. He was twenty-five years old. Joseph's last letter to Kimbra and a brief description of their unique friendship can be found in the first pages of the book.

"WSP" truly is an enjoyable read for both men and women, and is perfect for any teen experiencing true love for the first time. And for those of us who have already had this marvelous experience, we'll step back in time with Kaitlyn, as she takes us on her journey, side-by-side with her.

More About the Author

While living in Pennsylvania, Kimbra turned her hand to writing in March 2000. Immersing herself in the craft, she began, not long afterward, to frame and write "With a Stroke of the Pen." After the book was published in 2002, she was sent on a whirlwind two-month, five-state book-signing tour for the world famous Wegmans Food Markets and to other book stores as well.

From 2002 until 2005,, Kimbra wrote "This Child's Eyes", worked behind-the-scenes or appeared in numerous community theatre productions, which her so-called 'claim-to-fame' was playing the lead female role of Rachel Brown in "Inherit The Wind." She also appeared in some made-for-cable-TV productions and in a made-for-cable-TV movie, playing a 1040's damsel in distress.

Kimbra's intentions were to write many more novels. However, her health took a turn for the worse in early 2006, forcing her to move to her home state of New York in 2007 and to give up her dream for a temporary several year hiatus. Regardless of the muscle pain and weakness Kimbra has to contend with, she's back (slowly but surely) and she's going after her own second chance at making her dreams come true.

Currently, Kimbra works with dementia residents, writes on her blog when she feels like it, and she is working on her next novel. She invites you to follow her on Twitter at @KimbraLeigh

Why is this book getting such good reviews? I read 6-7 books a week. This took me 3 days because it just dragged on. I felt no real connection to the book, just a incomplete teenage romance. The plot is obvious. The main character kaitlyn is annoying. If i had to read we are so in love, or more in love, or just the word love one more time I'm sure i would puke. What an overdramatic book. Worst off the wording is jovunial. Don't waste your time on this it does not get better

I tried about 4 times to get into this novel, but failed each time.It was not particularly exciting or even interesting.
Maybe a reader who enjoys slow paced, cobweb spinning novels will appreciate it.
I did not. Sorry

Sweet story but should have been written as a very short story. It read like a Dick, Jane, Sally and Spot reader I remember reading in elementary school in the 50's. I wanted to finish the story but was very frustrated at all the insignificant detail that drug and drug and drug and drug..........the story out till I was tempted to just quit the book.

The story line was OK but I got bored with the description of each day. It was like a filler for a story that didn't have that much to it.

Yes, anyone who has had a "first love" can identify with the butterflies, etc., and look back on these memories with fondness. I would put this book in the same category as a Nicholas Sparks novel in that it is simple, simply written, and not provoking deep thought. It's a quick read, enjoyable.

It started out REALLY well, but then the consecutive chapters were just so boring. I kept skipping ahead to see who wrote the letter, but honestly, I don't care that bad. When I read a book, I want it to capture me at some point. I read 25% into it and I was still barely making it. I hate giving books bad ratings, but I just did not like this one at all.

I really enjoyed this book. SPOILER ALERT - I had to keep reading to find out why Ray left. I felt Kait's pain in the writing. During the time transitions, I could see this being made into a movie.
