K. R. Wilson grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Calgary, which is probably why his writing contains so damn much music. He's also technically a lawyer. His debut novel, An Idea About My Dead Uncle, won the inaugural Guernica Prize in 2018 and was published by Guernica Editions in 2019. His novel Call Me Stan: A Tragedy in Three Millennia, published by Guernica in 2021, was longlisted for the Leacock Medal for Literary Humour. His work has appeared in Bywords, The Temz Review, Syncopation Literary Journal, DarkWinter Literary Magazine, and the flash fiction anthology This Will Only Take a Minute. He lives in Toronto.
