"Ha, ha. The writer is with us always. When my husband and I take a trip or vacation I find myself just soaking in the atmosphere, places and people and filing them away in my memories. Then I usually get back home and write a book set in the place I…"

Kathryn Meyer Griffith left a comment for Patricia Robertson
"July 16 Pat, my road to self-publishing was a very long one. I started writing over 42 years ago...of course the only game in town was traditional publishing. Took me 12 years to get that first book published (life got in the way and most of that…"

"“Time and tide wait for no man, but time always stands still for a woman of thirty.”  What Frost meant, I think, is that at 30 a woman can stop time...she's beautiful, she has her whole life and all her dreams before her. In…"

Kathryn Meyer Griffith commented on the blog post '5 Reasons to Wait and Slow Down When It Comes to Publishing Your Book'
"I did the “hurry up and wait” in traditional publishing for almost forty years. It was frustrating, heartbreaking and perplexing all at once. Made so little money. So many years spent "waiting" for a publisher, an editor or an…"

Kathryn Meyer Griffith replied to the discussion 'Markets for horror stories' in the group Horror Writers
"I tried the magazine route a few years ago, and I'm an established author with many years and books behind me, but either they each went out of business too quickly, changed hands, lost editors like crazy, or I rarely heard back from them. So,…"

Kathryn Meyer Griffith commented on the blog post 'Self-Published Authors Don’t Need a New Term'
"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…"

Kathryn Meyer Griffith commented on the blog post 'Self-Published Authors Don’t Need a New Term'
"I don't care what I "call" myself or what anyone else calls me...all I know is that since I "self-published" my 16, 17, 18 and 19th book to Amazon Kindle I'm making more money than I ever have since 1984. Ever. In…"

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.
