Kory M. Shrum is author of eighteen novels, including the bestselling Shadows in the Water and Dying for a Living series. She has loved books and words all her life. She reads almost every genre you can think of, but when she writes, she writes science fiction, fantasy, and thrillers, or often something that’s all of the above.


In 2020, she launched a true crime podcast “Who Killed My Mother?” under the name K.B. Marie, sharing the true story of her mother’s tragic death. You can listen for free on YouTube or your favorite podcast app.


When not writing or producing her show, she can usually be found under thick blankets with snacks. The kettle is almost always on. When she’s not eating, reading, writing, or indulging in her true calling as a stay-at-home dog mom, she loves to plan her next adventure. (Travel).


She lives in Michigan with her equally bookish wife, Kim, and their rescue pug, Charley.
