Lost and Found

When Murray Kimber found himself stranded overnight in the mountains while on a bike trip in Oaxaca, Mexico, he knew there would be an upside. Kimber found the silver lining by generating the mishap into an article he wrote and illustrated for Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine. "I pitched the editors the idea of a group of foreigners living in Mexico, in love with biking and driven to a fault by wanderlust. But I wanted to write the article." The editors embraced to Kimber’s idea, resulting in his first writing credit.

Murray wishes to pursue other writing/art assignments, believing he can offer editors a unique product. "I think an artist who can also write brings a magazine a complete editorial package," he says. "Particularly if I am generating my own story ideas."

The summer issue of Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine is available as of June 7th, and online at www.kmcmag.com
