About Kim

Kim Gilmour is a journalist and author specialising in technology, the internet and consumer rights.

She loves inspiring people of all ages to get creative with technology. One of her first books, Digital Photography for the Older and Wiser, aims to help complete novices get to grips with technology, while Spotify for Dummies introduces people to the concept of streaming and sharing music — an unusual idea just a few years ago!

Kim is one of the few people who has been winched up to Sealand, the independent nation that was originally created atop a disused WWII gun platform off the Essex coast. There, she reported on how it was (supposedly) being used as a data haven for people to escape draconian Internet laws.

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Kim lived and worked in London for a fun-filled decade and is now back in her hometown with her young daughter. She enjoys scouring second-hand stores for bargain children’s books and currently works as a content producer at the Australian consumer organisation, CHOICE.

“In the first full year that Isabel and Creative Authors represented me, I had five books published. I could not have done that without Isabel’s expert guidance – and she is so easy to work with.”
