Monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! Author and avid reader, BP Gregory was always an oddment to justify the most terrible things. With such tales you shouldn’t always feel comfortable or safe.
Coming from a sober, orderly corporate background she’s been a student of archaeology and a dilettante of psychology, biology and prepping culture. However, it was her love of frogmarching hapless characters through hell that drew her to science fiction, horror, and urban fantasy: all engines for peeling back layers to discover what, if anything, lurks within. Do we each treasure some inviolate core of self, kept safe from our actions and choices? Would it matter if nobody saw it?
BP Gregory is the author of four novels including the newly released outback horror/mystery novel The Town, about an ominous burnt-out town and the desperate souls who vanish seeking it. A stroll down life’s eerie back alleys with a few fistfuls of short stories, and a horror novelette which was a messy love letter to her adolescence in the city round out the picture. She lives in Melbourne with her husband and is currently working on Flora & Jim, the glacial post-apocalypse she's always wanted to write.

A good, well-written, quirky horror with well-defined characters.
