Kimberly Arms Shirk Releases Book: “REMOTE FEARS & Silver Linings” September 3, 1997. Nineteen years ago a near tragedy took place in Des Moines, Iowa. While setting up for a Remote Live Television Broadcast a colleague of Kimberly Arms Shirk raised the mast of their Live truck into electrical lines, grounding a path for 13,000 volts of electricity first to the colleague and then after a daring rescue attempt, coursing through the body of Kimberly. Burned over 12% of her body and face, and against all odds, she survived to tell the story of a devastating physical journey and spiritual healing through it all. Released on September 3, 2016, REMOTE FEARS & Silver Linings is a documented television reporter’s account of the initial accident, the five years of surgery and therapy that ensued, and the hope found in the healing process. While we as a society search constantly for meaning in life, Kimberly maintains that by simply changing our perspective, one can find hope and healing in any situation. Books are available to purchase from Outskirts Press, Amazon and Kindle, and Barnes & Noble. A Lincoln, Nebraska resident, Shirk is a Senior Marketing Strategist with Talent Plus. To book a speaking engagement or purchase a signed copy of REMOTE FEARS & Silver Linings, visit www.kimberlyshirk.com or email silverliningswriter@gmail.com. OCTOBER 2016 Strictly Business 11
