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 people that drew her to science fiction, horror, and urban fantasy: all engines for frogmarching hapless characters through hell. A process of 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 The Town, about a mysterious burnt-out town and the people who vanish seeking it. A stroll down life’s eerie back alleys with a few collections of short stories, and a horror novelette which was a messy love letter to her childhood city round out the picture. She lives in Melbourne with her husband.
