Kristin Ann King


I’m a writer, parent, and activist who lives in Seattle. My work has appeared in such places as Strange Horizons, Calyx, The Pushcart Prize XXII (1998), and the anthology Missing Links and Secret Histories (2013). I enjoy reading, playing with my family, coffee, hiking, blogging, and more reading.

Right now, I’m in the middle of a couple of writing projects: a collection of critical essays about Doctor Who and the show’s companions; a collection of zombie math stories; and a story set in the universe of “Mystery of the Missing Mothers,” which appeared in Missing Links and Secret Histories.

The characters in this short story collection try to fit into a uniquely "Utah" paradise, but they fall down the rabbit hole instead. Now they’re plagued by mental illness, mystical creatures, and character flaws, and they just muddle through as best they can. The result is by turns hilarious, heartbreaking, and downright peculiar!
