Kim Vogel Sawyer is an American author best known for writing books like The Librarian of Boone’s Hollow and the Mountain Lake Minnesota trilogy.

Kim dreamed of being a writer from a young age, all the way back to kindergarten, but she went on to become a teacher instead. She loved the kids, but struggled with doing it full-time due to various health issues. Upon switching to teaching part-time, she was able to give herself the morning hours to try and write. Her only rule was to never write anything that would embarrass her mother or her children. In 2002, she published her first book, A Seeking Heart.
