About Kym

My Work

Kym Roberts' dream police car in Handled By Officer

I'm a retired detective sergeant from KCMO and I'm married to an alpha male--that doesn't change as they get older...trust me;) And if you think they aren't work--ha! Open your eyes woman! They will challenge you every minute of your life!

My Passion

Catch the Wave with Kym Roberts!

We live to surf. Even though we are temporarily land-locked in the arid climate of Texas, our boards are calling us home. But in the meantime, I write, I carve, I paint, I craft, I kayak and I swim. (I'm game if you're game!)

My Journey

Multnomah Falls a bridge to paradise in Kym Roberts' Tickled to Death Mysteries

I can't imagine living in one place all my life, especially since I've lived on both coasts, north, south and midwest. Home truly is where your heart is--mine just happens to belong on an island.

Three career paths resonated for Kym during her early childhood: a detective, an investigative reporter, and…a nun. Being a nun, however, dropped by the wayside when she became aware of boys—they were the spice of life she couldn’t deny. In high school her path was forged when she took her first job at a dry cleaners and met every cop in town, especially the lone female police officer in patrol. From that point on there was no stopping Kym’s pursuit of a career in law enforcement—even if she had to duct tape rolls of coins to her waist to meet the weight requirements to be hired. (Yes, she really did that!) Kym followed her dream and became a detective that fulfilled her desire to be an investigative reporter, with one extra perk—a badge. Promoted to sergeant Kym spent the majority of her career in SVU. She retired from the job reluctantly when her husband drug her kicking and screaming to another state, but writing continued to call her name and a writer was born.
