Kimberly Clark Sharp, M.S.W., has earned the title of "Near-Death Comedienne" through her many presentations about near-death experiences. She is the founder and president of the Seattle International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), the oldest and largest group of its kind in the world. A clinical social worker, Sharp has taught at the University of Washington School of Medicine and at Seattle University. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and children.
Her book, After the Light, is a near-death classic, educating thousands about the near-death experience with much humor and tact, delivering the serious message that we do not die in an irresistibly humorous package. It is difficult to put her book down once you begin to read.
