Description


  • Author events in Alaska and elsewhere in the U.S., cities to come.

  • Media interviews based on timely news hooks including adoption, infertility, overcoming childhood neglect, growing up with a parent with mental illness, family life in organized crime, etc.

  • Reviews and excerpts in trade, national, women’s, and family media.

  • Featured at ALA, BEA, PNBA, and MPIBA conferences.


After an unconventional childhood that ended in the tragic death of her mother and the murder of her Alaskan mobster father, Kim Rich was left on her own at the young age of fifteen to fend for herself. Ever since then, she began a nearly lifelong pursuit in chasing what most others had—a normal life.

Rich tugs at your heartstrings as you follow her journey toward normalcy, from her teen years, freshly orphaned, through her high school years spent couch-surfing at local families’ homes, then through her college years, a failed first marriage, and a rising career as a journalist. Through frank and down-to-earth storytelling, Rich also tells of her grandfather’s kidnapping, a frightening health crisis, and a six-year attempt to have children.

Picking up right where her first memoir, Johnny’s Girl, left off, A Normal Life recounts the author’s vivid story of being an ordinary girl faced with extraordinary circumstances—at seemingly every turn in life—with grace, humility, and wit.
