From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul

Who Is Kimberly Kirberger?

Kimberly Kirberger has enjoyed many successes in her life, but the one of which she is most proud is being called friend by many teenagers. When she began compiling Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul with Jack and Mark, she decided that all the final decisions should be made by teenagers themselves. To accomplish this, she convened and worked with a group of teens who first identified the issues they wanted to see covered and then helped her select the stories that best covered them. The most important thing to Kimberly was that this book be for teenagers and teenagers only.

Kimberly is the managing editor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books. She works closely with the authors, coauthors, editors and contributors, making sure the books all contain that special Chicken Soup magic. Since there are currently over 30 Chicken Soup books being written, compiled and edited, she has her hands full.

It is sold in 150 of the finest boutiques and department stores in the nation, including Nordstrom. Most recently she has become known for her “Charms for the Soul,” which contain inspirational quotes inspired by the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. She has designed jewelry for numerous television shows and movies, includingMelrose Place, Friends andMrs. Doubtfire.

Kimberly is also proud to call Jack Canfield her brother and confirms that fromthe time they were both young, she knew he would do something great and kind. She recalls howhe used to come home from college and engage her in stories that both entertained and taught lessons.
