From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Love & Friendship

Who Is Kimberly Kirberger?

Kimberly is an advocate for teens, a writer for teens, a mother of a teen, and a friend and confidante to the many teens in her life. She is committed to bettering the lives of teens around the globe through her books and the outreach she does for teens on behalf of her organization, Inspiration and Motivation for Teens, Inc.

Kim’s love for teens was first expressed globally with the publication of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. This book was a true labor of love for Kim, and the result of years of friendship and research with teens from whom she learned what really matters. After the success of the first Teenage Soul book, and the outpouring of hundreds and thousands of letters and submissions from teens around the world, Kim went on to coauthor the New York Times #1 bestsellers Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II and Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Journal, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Letters, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff and Chicken Soup for the College Soul. Kim’s empathic understanding of the issues affecting parents led her to coauthor Chicken Soup for the Parent’s Soul.

In October 1999, the first book in Kim’s Teen Love series was released. Teen Love: On Relationships has since become a New York Times bestseller. Her friendship and collaboration with Colin Mortensen of MTV’s Real World Hawaii produced the much-loved Teen Love: A Journal on Relationships and Teen Love: On Friendship. She recently released Teen Love: A Journal on Friendship.

Her nonprofit organization, Soup and Support for Teachers, is committed to providing inspirational and supportive reading materials to teens and teachers.

When she is not reading letters she gets from teens, Kim is offering them support and encouragement in the forums on her Web site, www.iam4teens.com. She also enjoys nurturing her family, listening to her son’s band and hanging out with her friends.
