Kari Kilgore finished her first published novel Until Death in Room 217 at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, where Stephen King got the idea for The Shining. That’s just one example of how real world inspiration drives her fiction.
Kari’s first published novel Until Death was on the Bram Stoker Award’s Preliminary Ballot for Superior Achievement in a First Novel in 2016, and it was a finalist for the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival’s Golden Stake Award in 2018.
Her short story In the Company of Women was named Silver Honorable Mention in the 2018 Fourth Quarter Writers of the Future contest. Her professional short story sales include three to Fiction River anthology magazine and two to holiday-themed anthologies for Kristine Kathryn Rusch due out late in 2019.
Kari writes fantasy, science fiction, horror, and contemporary fiction, and she’s happiest when she surprises herself. She lives at the end of a long dirt road in the middle of the woods with her husband Jason Adams, various house critters, and wildlife they’re better off not knowing more about.
