KM Hardy was born in Olney, Maryland. Her father’s work allowed her to travel all over the country throughout her childhood where she was able to meet and observe many different people.


When she was eight, she discovered an old, forgotten journal written by her grandfather while he served in World War II. This sparked her interest in writing about everyday people and what they would do in certain circumstances.


Eventually, her family settled in Utah where she would attend Utah State University Eastern, and later meet her husband. Graduating with a Criminal Justice degree, she went on to work for the government for the next ten years, but she could never leave behind her first love: writing.


Eventually, she entered her works into competitions, including for the renowned James Patterson where she achieved a finalist spot. This incredible experience encouraged her to continue her craft until Sampson Angus McKay was born.


Apart from writing thrilling novels, she loves cooking gourmet meals, playing pranks on her family, and camping with her dog.


But more than anything, she loves being married to her best friend and navigating motherhood with their three rambunctious kids.
