C.S. Magnuson is a writer and avid reader of horror and gothic tales. A bit of a wanderer, she has lived in multiple countries and many states throughout the US but currently makes her home in Kansas City with her husband, two kids, and a horde of large and unruly canines.

When she is not working on a novel, she writes scripts and produces films and PSA's for individuals and organizations she hopes will make the world a better place. Having grown up in the mountains of California in a town with one traffic light and zero street lamps, she escapes to dark and desolate hills whenever she can to float in murky lakes and find inspiration in the shadowy depths of ancient caves and woods.

C. S. Magnuson signed with Horrorsmith Publishing for her April 2024 release, Dark Things Crawl Out.
