Kimberly “Kimba” J. Dalferes is a native Floridian who for the past two decades has pretended to be a Virginian. Her accomplishments have included successfully threading a sewing bobbin, landing a 35 pound Alaskan king salmon, and scoring a ceramic sangria pitcher at an estate sale for $1. She also sometimes writes books such as “I Was In Love With a Short Man Once” and “Magic Fishing Panties.” Since 2014 her humor column – Dock Tale Hour – has been featured in Laker Magazine. She is often found hanging out on her blog “The Middle-Aged Cheap Seats.” A proud Florida State University graduate, she frequently sings the Seminole fight song out loud for no reason other than she still remembers all the words. Dalferes divides her time between Fairfax and Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia with husband Greg, Bonz the cat, and occasionally her son Jimmy, when he is home from college.
