About the Book

Life as a police officer can be lonely. Not only is it a difficult career, filled with difficult circumstances and people, but it can also be deadly. However, as Constable Kimberley Tent discovered, she was at far greater risk from her own mind and her own unrealistic self-expectations than she was from the public.


Kim had given up on life and her battle with PTSD when a surprise bond with a stranger gave her the courage she needed to face her biggest adversary yet—herself. Described as “gripping, honest, and raw,” Parts of Me is a poetic memoir that gives the reader a rare glimpse into a police officer’s personal struggle with trauma, depression, eating disorder, and her own will to live or die.


Although Kim’s mission is to spread awareness of PTSD and give hope to fellow police officers suffering in silence, this collection is for anyone who has ever felt pain, fear, or loss—and risen above.

About the Author

I reside in beautiful British Columbia with my childhood sweetheart of 34 years. I grew up surrounded by nature and began writing at a very young age. I have three amazing children and three grandchildren, who I adore, and who have been extremely supportive to me throughout this Journey. My mission is to spread awareness of PTSD through my own experience as a First Responder, and to give hope and support to fellow Police Officers, who are still suffering in silence.
