"Brooke, I agree. It will change. It has already changed in some ways/places. Now some review sites, which never had before, are allowing you to submit your self-published books for review. Same with some contests like the EPIC. Also, I had a…"

"Ah Cindy, I'm one of those older writers who have sacrificed my whole life (it seems, well, I did start writing at 21) in many ways for my writing. Spending hours, days, months, years at the typewriter and now computer to write my stories.…"

"Maria, Thank you...such an easy way to remember the correct usage.  Would you also have a quick way like that to explain   "that/which and lay/lie" ? I would really appreciate that, too."

Kathryn Meyer Griffith commented on the blog post 'Bad.'
"Remember what I said: Take every bad review with a grain of salt; glean anything from it that might help you in the next book, but ignore the rest. After 42 years of writing and 30 of those published I've come to believe that there are just…"

Profile Information

Who I am:
About Kathryn Meyer Griffith...
Since childhood I’ve always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty years ago now, and have had eighteen (ten romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance and three murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press and Amazon Kindle Direct.
I’ve been married to Russell for almost thirty-five years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have three quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha, live cats Cleo and Sasha (Too), and the five of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.
