USA TODAY bestselling author Kory M. Shrum is the author of successful multiple series, including the Dying for a Living series and the Shadows in the Water series. 

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, 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.
