Who I am

My name is Kimberly Barrett Luttery

My love for fiction began at an early age as I avidly read books and authored my own short stories and poetry. After receiving a B.A. degree in Mass Communications from Illinois State University, I spent much of my career working with non-profit organizations that focus on families and children including United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, and The Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta. 


Creative writing is my passion. I founded Azure Dusk Publishing, LLC because of a desire to tell inspiring universal stories that appeal to all children, stories that would have a positive impact on how they perceive themselves and connect with others. These colorful interactive picture books target children ages 3 - 8 years old and feature African American children as the main characters. The simplicity of the language in each book is perfect for reading aloud in a classroom, at bedtime, or anytime. Titles include Grandpa Had a Grandpa Too, Grandma Had a Grandma Too, and I am Wonderfully Made.


I also help aspiring authors publish their books by assisting them with the self-publishing process and providing writing, editing, and proofreading services. To learn more about my work, please visit

Why I Write Children's Books

My desire is to share inspiring stories with early readers that have a positive impact on how they perceive themselves and interact with others, especially African American children and other children of color identified as BIPOC, which is Black Indigenous and People of Color.

The BIPOC reading community is an under-served audience in the children’s book genre. I passionately believe that books with diverse characters should be in the hands of children from all backgrounds to promote character diversity and inclusiveness.

Childhood literacy is very important to me because it sets the foundation for lifelong learning. I have always loved books, and I believe that all children should have an at-home library. It is important that I provide books to under-served children no matter where I go so a portion of my inventory is always set aside to donate.
