An anomaly of stardust, S.M. Shuford was once a fairytale witch, but found keeping to the diet to be too taxing. An artist, writer and award-winning book critic, she labels her work as a whole "dream horror", but dabbles in many genres of books for older teens and adults. Shuford's poetry and reviews have appeared in Realistic Poetry International, Infernal Ink and Radium Piano Band, among other publications.
She is an advocate for human rights, awareness of mental illness and mental health.
Shuford's books are available in digital and print in over 50 countries, at most major online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Rakuten Kobo and Smashwords. You can also follow her on Goodreads, Tumblr @ambientheaven and her blog, Blood Red Velvet.
