Shane Grey


Shane Grey isn't Stephen King. He isn't even James Patterson. In fact, he's neither of those guys. His stories are about troubled characters trying to find meaning in life! They use sex, drugs, music, booze, and sometimes murder as a way to feel connected to humanity. He used to drink too much, now he smokes the weed and is often going on tangents about TV shows or movies, he talks about his opinions far too much. Shane was raised on a steady diet of sugary cereal, teen tv dramas, Tarantino films, pop rocks, Ninja Turtle ice cream bars, comic books, horror films, and bad parenting. But he makes me laugh, to put it frankly, he ain't no goddamn son of a bitch. He is either a genius or completely insane. That's Shane Grey. -Tucker Sawyer(close friend).

Here is what people are saying about Shane Grey:

"The essence of Richard Laymon is alive and well in Shane Grey." -Joe Cauwel, Horror Film Reviewer.

[Shane Grey's ebook, Sincerely, Me] "I really liked this piece. It's creepy and builds up to a surprise at the end. Good job. Worth the read."
-Ser Livre, author of We The Victims: A Guide To Relationships For Victim Type Women.

[Shane Grey's ebook, Sincerely, Me] "Weird, but ok, liked somewhat." -Eloise Tavares, Smashwords Reader.

[Shane Grey's ebook, Phoebe] "A page turner that keeps you reading, a nice bridge between reality and fantasy." -Arnold Brown, Comedian/Actor.

[Shane Grey's ebook, The Last Story I Will Ever Write About Her] "Such honesty makes this story a brutal break up story-it made me feel sorry for Missy. Most guys would relate to this story, most ladies would want a guy who really loves them like the main character." -Dora Okeyo, author of From The Heart.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The first short story I ever wrote was called Crimson Clown. It was about a brother and sister who always fought over the remote control, One day their dad brought home a weird remote control from work. This remote control was evil and it brought Crimson Clown out of the TV. He was like Pennywise from It. I never finished it fully. I was about ten years old when I wrote that.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest short story is called Boxes, it's super short and has a twist. My upcoming book is called Fucking and Drinking. It's loosely based on my alcoholism and sex addiction while I worked for three years in a psychiatric hospital. In that time I read every thing written by Charles Bukowski and John Fante. I would obsess over women I couldn't have. I was miserable but happy for it. It should be out by Xmas 2014.

  • Trucker on Feb. 16, 2012

    This story is good, vague, but good. It is a cautionary tale. It's a quick fun read. I hope for more stories of the main character to surface.
  • Darkly Demonic Dexter on Dec. 23, 2012

    As a Dexter fan and fan of serial killer fiction I rather enjoyed this piece, I love writing and reading fiction about killers and that had inspired me to take my own stab, pun intended at Dexter fan fiction! Thanks, Mortimer.
