I had the honor of reading Kimi Cunningham Grant’s novel, “These Silent Woods,” before its publication and blurbing it. The novel is beautifully evocative and quietly yet powerfully suspenseful.
So I was quite excited to chat with Kimi about her novel, her inspiration and her writing process. We talk about our love of nature and how we find it both restorative and empowering, the writing life, encouragement for writers, and more.

Besides “These Silent Woods,” Kimi is the author of Fallen Mountains and Silver Like Dust. She is a two-time winner of a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Memorial Prize in Poetry and a recipient of a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts fellowship in creative nonfiction. Her poems and essays have appeared in Fathom, Literary Mama, RATTLE, Poet Lore, and Whitefish Review.
