IMG_8889930432352May 20th for most people it was just another day of the year.

But for KS Oliver, this day has significantly changed her life in ways even she couldn’t have predicted. The journey began on May 20, 2010, when she was rushed to the emergency room, and without warning, she flatlined. Doctors were able to act fast enough to save her life, however, it would never be the same. She was diagnosed with Lupus, a terminal illness. From that day forward, she would be pricked and probed with needles, in and out of doctor’s offices, and face an everyday struggle to stay healthy. Despite all these challenges, KS Oliver did not let her illness stop her. Being a devoted wife and mother of two, she continued on to better days and even better accomplishments.

On May 20, 2013, KS Oliver became a published author and released her first book, “Still Standing,” a book of poetry.

On May 20, 2014, she released,”Flatlined: Almost Doesn’t Count,” a tell-all book documenting her life before and after a Lupus diagnosis. Then on May 20, 2015, KS released “Flatlined Resuscitated,” the conclusion of her tell-all series.

KS Oliver is also the CEO of Pen’Ashe, a literary magazine that promotes and markets other published authors. In June 2015, she started her own publishing company, Diamante Publications. Diamante is Spanish for Diamond.
