Martha Kimes
IVY BRIEFS: True Tales of a Neurotic Law Student (Atria, 2007)

Martha Kimes graduated from the University of Wisconsin and received her law degree from Columbia Law School, which she writes about in her first book, IVY BRIEFS. She graduated with honors from Columbia Law School in 1997, and was a practicing lawyer for nine years—first as a litigation associate at an elite New York City law firm, and then, finally throwing in the towel, moving her family to Arizona, and sacrificing her giant law firm salary to work as in-house counsel to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Martha is now a writer living in Phoenix with her husband, Joe, and her two sons, Donovan and Simon.
