Kim Poovey has been regaling audiences throughout the southeast for years portraying historic characters such as Jane Austen, Scarlett O'Hara, and Emma Victoria Brown, the main character from her first novel, Truer Words. Dressed in period attire, Kim also presents on various aspects of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, transporting audience members to the gentility of bygone days.
Kim creates all of her gowns using period correct patterns as well as finishing details such as tatted trim, ruching, and silk rosettes. No detail is overlooked including jewelry, headdress, and undergarments, all of which are historically accurate.
When not writing or performing, Kim works as a school psychologist. She lives with her husband, Darryl, and their four legged children in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. All books and performances are G-rated, (God-rated), as Kim strives to bring glory to the Lord with each performance.
