Kimberley Chambers did not go to Oxford. She does not have a degree of any type, nor did she study literature. She is not well travelled nor did she have parents of literary influence. But what Kimberley Chambers does have are nine hit novels and loads of money.
Kimberley Chambers was born in 1967 to Val and Tom Chambers. On her website, the new bestselling author states that, “My father and mother are both dead. One of my greatest regrets is that I wasn’t able to do something to make them proud of me while they were alive.”Her family oriented from the East-End of London, but the author was raised in Dagenham. Chambers was an extremely smart and gifted student in primary and secondary school. Her best subject was English. For reasons unknown, Chambers grades began to plummet. When she was eleven, she states that “things began to deteriorate.” After a few years, her academic life became so stark that she decided to leave her secondary school.
After she left school, Chambers worked on Roman-Road-market in east London. Chambers enjoyed her job and felt like she had a future in sales. After a while, she became dissatisfied with changes that were occurring in the market. She left her job and began an new career in DJ-ing. On her website, Chambers states that she also enjoyed DJ-ing because she, “loved both alcohol and music.” At age 30, Chambers left her career as a DJ and decided to become a mini-cab driver, a move that pleased her mother.

A few days later, she began writing her premiere novel Billie Jo.

When Kimberley Chambers began writing, she new in her gut that this was not a fly by night fantasy like many of her other jobs. On her website in reference to writing Billie Jo, “I remember that from chapter 4 and onwards, the writing process was really easy. It was then I knew that I’d finally found my vocation in life. I mad very little notes, other than some character names. After I finished each chapter, the next came easy.”
With the encouragement of friends, Chambers bought a copy of the Writers and Artists Year Book and scrolled through the list of agents. She sent the first few chapters out and within 24 hours received her first phone call. Over the next few weeks, she received 4 more calls. The only thing left to do at that point was to pick a publisher.
