About K.S. Krueger
Although her background has been in business, K.S. Krueger has always loved to write. She has written poetry and several children’s stories originally for her eldest daughter. Kim enjoys the idea of seeing the world through the eyes of her imagination and finds herself submerged in the worlds she creates. Imagination has never been in short supply ever since she was a child.
Because her Traegonia series rides a fine line between fantasy and reality, it calls each reader to decide for themselves if they BELIEVE! Kim has always believed that when you find something you truly love to do, even if you think it is just a dream, find your passion, the gift that is within you, believe in yourself and follow that dream. “Let yourself be open to the possibilities that await. You never know where they might take you.”
Kim is a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She is a writer, businesswoman, Reiki practitioner and spiritual person. She loves animals, nature and kids. Kim has lived in the Suburbs of Chicago all her life. She is creative and always tries to foster creativity in her own children as well as in others.

I believe that everyone is amazing and special, in their very own way. What if one day you opened your eyes and you could see the wonderful talents that everyone possessed just by looking at them? What if you could see the beauty in everyone regardless of what they looked like on the outside? How do you think it would make you feel inside?
I believe that each of us has awesome and incredible talents, that most of the time we don’t give ourselves enough credit for. Because it comes easy to us we tend to take it for granted. It is only when someone else who doesn’t have that same talent, is awed by what you have accomplished, that we notice ourselves a little more.
I also believe that when someone puts another person down it is because the person saying the hurtful things, in some way feels better about themselves when they do it. Or at least they think they do, or it makes them look cool, or they think it does.
I believe that we can live in a world, where each of us can respect others for who they are and what they can do, no matter how small or big, without feeling threatened or inferior.
Why is it easier to say I can’t than to try?
In 2012, let’s, try something. Let’s be kind, every day, to at least one person. Compliment someone on something they have done or something about them. Seek out being able to see the beauty and uniqueness in others and if you have nothing nice to say…say nothing at all.
Let’s notice the awesomeness in ourselves. We don’t have to brag or be boastful, just notice it and the things you are good at. Maybe even try something you have always wanted to do but never have. Find your talent, your passion and believe in all that you can do.
Talk to another person about bullying. Start a dialogue, with your friend, your mother, your child, or even the person sitting next to you on the train. Stand up, hold your head high and make a difference in this world, today, tomorrow and always. We will always live on this planet with others. You can choose to hate and be angry and frustrated or you can choose tolerance and love. It is of course your choice, I know what I will choose, do you?
I believe that life is a fascinating, wild rollercoaster ride full of new experiences, awesome people and lots of adventure and when things get crazy and overwhelming I hold up my arms and say “WEEEE”. I believe in me and I believe in you. Now it’s your turn…
