KC Nelms is an author and visual artist. She is the author of the Detective Julia Venza and Ginger Series. The first book in the series is A SLIVER IN THE DARK followed by CRY IN THE NIGHT. She is currently working on a standalone featuring sexual misconduct and domestic abuse investigator, Vann Finnelli. KC earned an MFA in Studio Arts and an MA in Art Education from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her artwork is about the human experience: the fragility of life; what is revealed versus what is kept hidden; and the physical versus the psychological. Her visual work explores the impact of trauma, collective empathy, sisterhood, and authenticity. Her mystery suspense novels are reflections of these concepts.
KC is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime.
KC lives in a small town, not unlike the ones in her stories, with her two golden retrievers.
