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.…"
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…"
"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…"
That's the risk every artist takes...it's the risk we all take. Every day. Our whole lives. It's called faith.
I've always said if I never make it, become famous or rich, or even widely read, at least at the end of my…"
"Thanks Meg. I don't know why Dinosaur Lake is doing so well...it must be the great cover from Dawne Dominique and the subject: dinosaurs.
I've been writing so long, but at times I still feel as if I don't know anything. But I do know…"
I once read many, many years ago that everything has been written about before; done before...but it's HOW YOU WRITE IT FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE with your own voice and words that will make it new, fresh...yours.
And hey, I just…"
take heart. I've had lots of mean 1 star reviews on most all of my 18 books. The same books that have had glowing 5 star reviews. So the moral of this? Some people will love your book and some people will hate it. So what. Accept that…"
"Thanks Catherine. After writing over 42 years and being published since 1984 (I've seen it all in the publishing universe) with the new eBooks and self-publishing I'm finally beginning to reap the rewards. Nice to be here."
"I'm so thrilled my 2006 romantic murder mystery ALL THINGS SLIP AWAY is now all mine again (it had a 10 year contract with Avalon Books) and I've revised it, had a fantastic new cover made from Dawne Dominique and now it's up for sale…"
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.

The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 over the weekend reminded me of something I wrote years ago about developing and conquering a fear of flying in the aftermath of the November 2001 crash of American Airlines flight 587. A warning:…See More
