Grace grew up in Tulsa Oklahoma as one of two Korean-Americans in her high school (her sister was the other one). Today, Grace writes books with Korean-American protagonists that she wished she had read about as a teen.
When she’s not plotting (the writing kind, not the world domination kind), you can find her wearing a Korean sheet mask, baking French macarons, and unintentionally killing house plants & succulents. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and three kids.
For Pitch Wars 2021, Grace K. Shim is co-mentoring with Jesse Q. Sutanto.
