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-four years ago now, and have had TWENTY-TWO (eleven romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, three thrillers 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-six years; have a son and two grandchildren 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 one cat, Sasha, and the three 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.

Hi Kathryn, I have read many books, written by indie authors and books published by major book publishing companies and have found errors. In fact sometime ago, I read an article in a newspaper where a popular book publishing company had to recall a cookbook from book stores because of an embarrassing mistake.

I guess that depends on why you started a Twitter account.

I have two - one for my ESL and one for my book (well, actually it's my dog's twitter account). The book account has turned into, basically, a place where I bookmark newspaper articles that are really interesting. The dog one has a lot of followers and has sold a few books, but interestingly some real friendships have come out of it. Believe it or not, when my dog died, people actually mailed me real gifts and condolence cards. And I know one twitter friend who traveled overseas and met another (both their dogs were tweeting friends).

Then again, I've used Twitter to challenge me to write poetry that's max 140 characters. It's been really nice.

but yes, tweets here, tweets there, and every time somebody includes your twitter handle in a tweet, you get a new email.

Will I be seeing a "My Latest Activity" when you've decided to cancel it??

Submitting Something Somewhere: Things to Consider (blog)

Aim beyond the moon. By which I mean, let’s not limit ourselves. We should take advantage of the accessibility of niche publications.  The niche ones may make it possible for us to get our foot wedged in the publishing door due to us/our work…See More
