Hi all,

Glad to be here. I'm a long time horror writer (over 42 years and have been published for over 30) but I've also published suspense/time travel/thrillers and murder mysteries. I've had 18 novels, 2 novellas and 12 short stories published. Most are horror. And yes, I've written about vampires, ghosts, demons, werewolves, possessed guns, witches, real live dinosaurs and banshees...but my books are never about the sex or romance; it's about the story, the characters. As a woman horror writer I pride myself on writing scary, full rounded tales. Take a look. Kathryn Meyer Griffith  P.S. My Dinosaur Lake is a 2014 Epic EBook Finalist.

As a rational, spiritual human is she obligated to save this man's life? She stays put and watches the fire creep within inches of him. She remains silent.

Hi All! I haven't been on for a while, but I wanted to share my story with all of you. It is a free download.

Has or is anyone using Bookbaby for publishing? I would be interested in hearing what you have to say about them.

Comment by Lexa Cain on August 1, 2012 at 4:11pm

Yay, Chantal! That's awesome to be chosen from so many.

I'm still revising my WIP, planning to query in Sept. At least I feel it's getting better with every pass. :-D
