About BP Gregory

Author and avid reader BP Gregory brings monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! With such tales you shouldn't always feel comfortable or safe.

Hailing from sober corporate beginnings she's been an archaeology student and a dilettante of biology, psychology, and apocalypse prepping. However, her love of frogmarching hapless characters through hell drew her to science fiction, horror and urban fantasy: all vehicles for peeling back screaming 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 recently released outback horror The Town, about a mysterious hidden town and those desperate souls who vanish seeking it. A stroll down life's eerie back alleys with a few fistfuls of short stories, and a novelette which was a messy love letter to her adolescence in the city round out the piece.

She lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and is currently working on Flora & Jim, the frozen post-apocalyptic tragedy she's always wanted to write.

Review by: S.E. Casey on Sep. 11, 2017 :
As its title suggests, White Picket details the everyday humdrum life of the suburbs. The grassy lawn, the hedges, the air conditioning, the gate security codes, and the inconvenient slack-faced zombie hoard. Gregory captures the banal quiet dread of going through the motions in suburbia.

"...and it’s impossible to eat, to watch a show, to enjoy anything knowing they’re out there."
