Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Waxahachie, Texas, but I have also lived in various Texas cities and most often in and out of Dallas. As an only child, my influences came from reading at an early age, the various types of people I have met throughout my life, and having some of the best family and teachers to guide me along my way.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in high school, mostly in a journal full of teenage angst and all the issues we all had to face. Then in my sophomore year I was lucky enough to take a journalism class which was the true beginning of my desire to become a writer.

  • Bird of Prey: A Horror Novella on Dec. 05, 2011
    star star star star star
    A Five-Star Heart-Pounding Chiller! “Bird of Prey” is one of those horror stories that slips under your skin from the very first page. Right off you know that something is very, very wrong and every moment thereafter feels like a realistic journey into the scariest movie nightmare anyone would ever dare to dream. With plenty of terrifying, heart-pounding elements of “life or death” situations, I was on the edge of nervous anticipation, but dare not pull away in fear of not knowing how it would end. Griffin Hayes is a winner with his ability to send chills up your spine in the ways of some of the greats and I wholeheartedly recommend his book as one of the best (and scariest) I have had the pleasure to read. It’s a definite must-read for every horror fan and a sure bet to thrill you as much as it did me.

    This book had a very interesting storyline, but I just couldn't get a visual of what I was reading. It has the potential to be so much more. Still, there is more to be said in honor of the author's work. The issues I have with the story simply pertains to me. I will leave any further review up to the avid paranormal readers.
  • A Splash of Hope on Jan. 26, 2013

    “A Splash of Hope” Wow! What a wild, titillating, emotional rollercoaster this story was! Though I have read a lot of this author’s work, I was not ready for the story I was about to face. My heart goes out to the Hope sisters and everything they went through. I know how growing up in a small town can be, especially when everyone thinks they know everyone else’s business, and it was no different for these beautiful young women. As for the men in their lives, The Carters, well, that is a story better left for the readers to learn on their own. I definitely give thumbs up to this book and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a story that will blow your socks off. Literally. Good Job, Charity Parkerson. Good job!
