Author Kim Luke once had to help a customer at her family Christmas tree farm chop down a fresh tree in a business suit and heels. She was comfortable in that attire, the “uniform” of her marketing profession. She was not as comfortable as a Christmas tree farmer, but she’s learned to be supportive in this family endeavor. The tree farm is located in Missouri, the setting for both of Kim’s two novels in her Circle of Sun series. A literature major in college, Luke has always enjoyed a good story and loves using her imagination. Of her many passions, writing has been with her the longest. She finds it pure joy, like eating a delicious piece of cheesecake.
The cornerstones in her life are her faith and family. Kim and husband Bob are blessed with three children, incredible in-laws and three grandchildren. The Lukes live with their two Alaskan Malamute dogs on a beautiful 20 acre farm, where they indulge in a love of books, coffee, wine and positive thinkers.

You can connect with Kim at, on Facebook at Circle of Sun or on Twitter, @kimluke. She is also a Goodreads author.
White Oak Missouri

The quaint little town of White Oak, Missouri is the setting for the Circle of Sun Fantasy series. Kim paints a vivid picture of a river-side village that draws visitors and tourists to the numerous wineries that flourish in the rolling green hills of the Missouri country side. White Oak Main street is home to Mocha Joe's Coffee Shop, Fireside Books, Lena's German Bakery and Marmaduke's European Confections.

White Oak might be fictional, but the inspiration for the setting comes from the beautiful town of Herman Mo. which left an impression on Kim. The beauty of the old German town and it's association with the river, reminded her of her hometown of Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin which sits next to the Mississippi. The little town of White Oak holds secrets waiting to be revealed.
