Musician, shovel-bum, diver, archaeologist, conservator, curator, range rider, environmental compliance officer, library director, wife, mom… Amy K. Marshall has been all these things at some point in her varied and twisted life. All along the way, she’s been a writer—albeit a writer of grants and technical reports, now a writer who enjoys hearing the plaintive wails of characters for their continued existence before she offs them. She came to writing horror late—just about the time her children became teenagers. She will leave it to the reader to ponder the connection. She is the author of a soon to be released novel The Fishing Widow and enjoys incorporating the essence of The Great Land in her decidedly Alaskan Gothic style. She lives in Craig on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska with her husband, two children, clairvoyant cat, and psychotic Border Collie. Oh, and she likes to fish. A lot.
(This year marks a SERIOUS change in what I'm writing ... not horror this time, and not set in Alaska, but this bio is better than nothing. It's from this year's Death At The Drive-In Collector's EP that will be available starting October 24th for Coffin Hop. Check out my blog for more details.
