Mark & Kym began homeschooling their children in the mid-80s, before it was really legal. With few curricula from which to choose, Kym began writing her own lessons to teach her children different topics: how to use the microscope, botany, color theory, raising goats, and more. Friends asked to borrow the lesson plans, then encouraged Kym to make them available to others. Thus, alWright! Publishing was born.

Kym has been a freelance writer for more than forty years specializing in education, home education, parenting issues and Christian themes. She has loved being a columnist for many magazines, writing often for several others, and writing twenty books. For five years her family published a magazine for stay-at-home moms, now they have begun again! She has taught homeschool co-op courses and run a co-op for hundreds of students for many years. She has written and taught Bible Studies for women and children. 

Kym has interviewed senior editors of publications, CNN correspondents, state legislators and political leaders. She has been interviewed for television, radio, magazines, newspapers, and on the internet. Her books have been reviewed in trade publications, magazines, newsletters, newspapers, and on the world-wide web. Kymís qualifications include a Bachelor of Science Degree, writing for publication since she was in high school and writerís conferences. As the mother of eight children, and having educated them at home, she has a vast store of knowledge and experience from which to draw. And, lastly, she won a poetry contest in high school, which began her love of writing for public viewing.
