Kim Bushman Aguilar

Kim Bushman Aguilar aspired to be a children’s book author during her college years, where she worked in the Children’s Book Department of the BYU Bookstore. Her favorites were: The Grump, by Mark Ludy, The Quiltmaker’s Gift, by Jeff Brumbeau, and Herb the Vegetarian Dragon, by Jules Bass. She makes an effort to be as pleasant as possible, learned to quilt on YouTube, and most decidedly is NOT a vegetarian. Kim has traveled extensively throughout the world, including eighteen months as a missionary in Ecuador. She currently resides in Boise, Idaho, with her husband Jose and their son Clark – she loves them with her whole heart.
