K.B. Goddard was born and raised in rural Derbyshire. She spent her youth discovering a love of books, especially old ghost stories. It was then that her fascination with the writing style of The Victorian and Edwardian eras began. Preferring her horror to focus on the unknown and the unnerving rather than the gory she started writing her own historical ghost stories in a bid to capture the spirit of the Victorian tales she admired so much.
Her horror and folklore articles have appeared on The Spooky Isles and her short stories have been produced as dramatic readings for The Wicked Library podcast. She also wrote the opening episode for season 2 of The Lift: The Lost Library.
In 2016 one of her short stories, A Macabre Melody, was published as part of the first Shadows at the door Anthology. The audio version of the anthology came out in 2017.
The novelty of hearing someone read her stories out loud hasn't worn off yet.
The lift episode The Lost Library and the Wicked Library episode Shadows have just been named as 2017 Parsec Award finalists in the "Best Speculative Fiction Story: Small Cast (Short Form)" category.
