Welcome

I’m Kimberly, an Author who holds nothing back, John Jay College Alum, motivator, gamer, and sometimes a cool auntie. When I’m not doing what I love, writing my books or playing video games, I’m trying to make my wife happy. I also love to scuba dive and believe we need to protect our oceans. In the future, I would love to work on conservation projects, eco-tourism and maybe volunteering time to rebuild the coral reefs. Have to work out that pesky buoyancy first!

The Jasmine Steele Mystery Series

Steele Resolve Crime Series

Kimberly Amato’s Jasmine Steele series is made to order for fans of hard-boiled police procedurals, badass female sleuths, and bargains. Those who can’t get enough of the exciting new wave of hard-boiled women sleuths, created by writers like Megan Abbott, Laura Lippmann, Lisa Lutz, and Vicki Hendricks will love Amato’s take-no-prisoners style, her unflinching attention to harrowing detail, and her tough-as-nails but soft-hearted detective.

Lovers of traditional mysteries will appreciate the web of fierce loyalty tempered with fearful caution that links Jazz’s tiny but hardy support system—both at work and at home. Somehow or other, in each book, Amato manages to mix all the excitement of an action thriller with the swirling emotions of a mainstream psychological novel.

“The writing style of Amato is wholly immersive, with scenarios as rich as those provided in top-tier film (Taken) or television (CSI, NCIS, Castle).” ~ James McQuiston, Nefutur Magazine
