About Kari Kilgore
Kari's first published novel Until Death was included on the Preliminary Ballot for the Bram Stoker Award for Outstanding Achievement in a First Novel in 2016. It was also a finalist for the Golden Stake Award at the Vampire Arts Festival in 2018.
Kari's short myth The Spider Who Ate the Elephant placed 2nd in fiction in the 2019 Virginia Writers Club Golden Nib contest.
Recent professional short story sales include four to Fiction River anthology magazine, with the first published in the September 2019 issue. Kari also has three stories in a holiday-themed anthology project with Kristine Kathryn Rusch due out over the holidays in 2020.
Kari writes first and figures out the story's genre later. That's resulted in fantasy, science fiction, romance, contemporary fiction, and everything in between. 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.
Kari's novels, novellas, and short stories are available at www.spiralpublishing.net, which also publishes books by Frank Kilgore and Jason Adams.
