Kiara Johnson, better known as Author Shirmel, was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina. As a mother of three and military spouse, Shirmel found herself moving often after high school, but one thing did not alter - her passion for writing.
Shirmel’s early love for writing emerged from witnessing an older cousin write poems and plays. This inspired her to write, starting with poems, plays, and songs. The inspiration led Shirmel to penning her very own short story. Though she’d won contests in school for her writing, it wasn’t until 2015 with the encouragement of her husband that she was ready to submit a book for publishing.
Knowing the literary industry requires constant learning and growth, Shirmel has set a goal to become a well-known author or screenplay writer.
She gives all the honor to God, as he is the reason and the strength that pushes her forward with each story she pens.
