Welcome to my website, where I, Kim Ventrella, talk about creepy stories and other writerly stuff. My debut middle grade novel, THE SKELETON TREE, is coming out with Scholastic in fall 2017. [Insert moment of excitement] When I’m not writing, you might find me working as a children’s librarian or fighting crime with my dog/superhero sidekick, Hera. I am a fan of whimsy, magic and weird stories of all kinds.

On this website, you will find: dog photos, skeletons, writing tips, contests, links to cool stuff, fancy collars, dog photos, secrets about my book and dog photos! Thanks for stopping by. If you’re a skeleton, here’s an air high five for being awesome! If not, still high five!
