Griffin Hayes


I'm a horror and YA paranormal thriller writer. In September, I published my first novel, MALICE. Two of my short stories, THE GRIP and THE SECOND COMING, as well as my novella, BIRD OF PREY, are now also online. And don't worry, I've got plenty more in the pipeline, including a zombie novella that's currently in the works. If you felt like saying hello or you just wanted to engage in some good old fashioned internet stalking, you can find me at my blog:

    A fresh and horrifying tale with more than a pinch of Richard Laymon and a touch of Stephen King thrown in for good measure. McGray leads us through the dark back alleys of a disturbed mind. I won't give anything away, but for a first timer I'm very very impressed. I for one can't wait to see what the author comes up with next! Rating: 4.5 stars.
