Two phone calls. One mysterious death.
This is a true story.
On July 4, 2020 Kory received two phone calls. One from her uncle, saying her mother was found dead in her bedroom from an overdose. A second from a homicide detective saying he believes it was murder—and her uncle is the suspect.
Now Kory wants to find the truth about what happened to her mother. But sifting through the conflicting details and compelling evidence turns out to be a hell of a ride. And a fearless look into her mother's dark past will uncover a truth—one she never expected.
After completing her show Who Killed My Mother? a true crime podcast, Kory received countless emails from all over the world asking: "How did you heal from everything that happened? How did you move away from all of the abuse, trauma, and mental illness to become the (mostly) happy, (mostly) healthy, and (mostly) successful person you are today?
How can I be happier, healthier, and more at peace with myself and my life?"
This wellness podcast will explore the answers to those questions.
USA TODAY bestselling author Kory M. Shrum has published thirty books, including her memoir, Who Killed My Mother?
In 2014, she launched her own independent publishing company and in 2020 began podcasting. In addition to her true crime podcast “Who Killed My Mother?”, she has a second show called “A Well Cared For Human”, which focuses on debunking self-care myths and offering strategies that improve mental health, resilience, and creativity.
When not writing, podcasting, or indulging in her true calling as a stay-at-home dog mom, she can usually be found under thick blankets with snacks. The kettle is almost always on.
She lives in Michigan with her equally bookish wife, Kim, and their rescue pug, Charley.
