Shelly King is a native Southerner who packed her bags and moved to Silicon Valley at the beginning of the Internet boom. She works for a major software company as a social media strategist and information architect. Her stories have been published in the GW Review, Epiphany, Slow Trains, the Dos Passos Review, and the Coe Review. She lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains with her husband, two big dogs, and a disapproving cat.

In my novel, The Moment of Everything, I have a group of characters who are in the medieval group the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). First, let me say, I’m not a member of the SCA. I have a lot of friends who are, so I have been to some events and hung out with them enough to […]

“If I could sleep with my arms around you, the ink could stay in the bottle.”
Shelly King, The Moment of Everything

“There's a part of grief that's unexpected. After the days when you think you'll never be able to get out of bed again and after walking about feeling like your insides are hollow and your skin is made of paper, you start remembering. You remember not the death and seeing the one you love in a hospital bed with tubes. You remember what he was like before all of that, when he was well and you were whole. It's that remembering that catches up with you and then you know the person you lost isn't lost after all, but has become part of you and you're the better for it.”
Shelly King, The Moment of Everything
