K. R. Smith is an Information Technology Specialist and writer living in the Washington, D.C. area. While mainly a creator of short stories, most of which are of the horror genre, he occasionally delves into poetry, songwriting, and the visual arts. His hope is to add a novel to this list someday.
K. R. has a couple of new stories available. Skarett's Treasure is in the pirate-themed anthology Dead Men's Tales and A Home for Christmas is part of the holiday-themed horror collection Death and Decorations by Thirteen O'Clock Press (available for now only on Lulu.com). Death and Decorations is a Top Ten Finisher (anthology category) in the 2016 P & E Readers Poll!
He is a contributor to the horror anthologies Gothic Blue Book III by Burial Day Books, In Creeps the Night by BHC Press, and Haiku of the Dead by Dreamscape Press. He also wrote the story One Above Zero for the anti-bullying anthology Tales from the Bully Box by Elephant's Bookshelf Press. In addition, he penned the tale of 14 year-old Gwendolyn in The Sword of Hexworthy Manor which is included in L. C. Mortimer's Swords of Darkness. His short story, The Song of Aiden, is part of the post-apocalyptic anthology Human 76, the proceeds of which go to the charitable organization Water Is Life.
To squeeze time for writing out of a busy schedule, many of his stories come to life on paper during his long daily train commute into Washington, D.C., often getting inspiration from the sights along the way.
Examples of his other writings, especially flash fiction, with links to published works and information on upcoming stories are available at www.theworldofkrsmith.com. You may contact him on Twitter via @wokrsmith.
