A founding member of Buckeye Crime Writers, Mercedes King is a Columbus, Ohio, native. With a degree in Criminology from Capital University, she has a passion for crafting true crime into fiction and exploring the depths of deviant behavior. Since her stories often mix fact with fiction and are shaped by not-so-distant decades, she refers to many of her works as Modern Historicals. Every Little Secret, Columbus Noir, and A Dream Called Marilyn are among her growing body of titles. In 2016 and 2017, Mercedes was a finalist for the Claymore Award. When she’s not elbow-deep in research, reading, or enjoying the local bike path, she might be at Wrigley Field or sinking her toes into the sand somewhere along Florida’s coastline.
