Echoes from Another Time; a short story

“It all began with the footsteps"

When Ally awakes in the middle of the night to the sound of soft, unexpected footsteps, she thinks her boyfriend has come home from his travels, but instead finds herself still eerily home alone.

Quickly, things spin out of control as candles begin to burn out of their own accord, and a haunting, darkling spirit appears — leading her to discover that nothing she once believed is what it seems...

Echoes from Another Time is a ghost story with a twist, written especially for the haunted Halloween period or a dark, stormy autumn night. Counting 22 pages, it is available to download in eBook format FREE of charge!

Visual Poetry; the Handwritten series

Combining photography and words together, the Handwritten series is a brand-new visual poetry endeavour (shared weekly through social media) born from the desire for a more personal touch.
Written with a fountain pen, staged with props, photographed and edited, it holds the familiar verse from my previous series —touching upon nature, life and love— in both Japanese and free-form styles.

About Me

Hello, and welcome; it's a pleasure to meet you. My name is Kimberly Jolanda, and I am an author, visual poet and artist, who was born in 1986 in Leiden, a city in The Netherlands, where I still happily live today.

Before pursuing my dream of producing my own publications, I've previously worked as a professional illustrator and designer for a small studio, and have had my portfolio represented by a London-based agency, until in 2017 I felt it was time for a change.

Combining my passions for both art and the written word, I began sharing my Visual Poetry online under my creative nickname Kiyo, and have published a handful of books like the fully illustrated Dreamscape, featuring my artwork and poems; the first Micro Poetry collection, Musings from a Wildflower; and more recently, Amaranthine, which holds all my haiku poems till date.

In the fall of 2019 I switched to using my full name with the arrival of my Handwritten poetry series, a small shift that came coupled with the desire to focus more on writing stories like my freely available eBook, Echoes from Another Time. Presently I'm thrilled to be working on Whispers on the Wind, a compilation of various magically touched tales slated for an expected 2020 release, and my first full-length novel, Spirit of the Wandering Fox.

When I'm not working on any of my projects, I can often be found curled up with a good book (from my endlessly growing to-read list), enjoying music, or indulging my love for film and television.
