R S J Gregory

Biography

R S J Gregory published his first superhero novel, Cosmic Girl: Rising Up in April 2014. Since then he has released three more in this series, which follows the adventures of teenager, Britney Brookes and her friends as they battle other metahumans and try to stop Armageddon.

Not to be tied down to just one genre, he has also written Shadow Mountain, a homage to H P Lovecraft, and he has also started a new supernatural thriller series with the debut of A Date with Death, featuring Brandon Blake and his vampire lover Celeste.

Always seeking new ways to thrill his readers, he is known for making his stories fast paced, unpredictable and packed full of exciting action.

R S J Gregory was brought kicking and screaming into this world way back in April 1973, in Bristol, England, at 3:45 .a.m. which is the earliest he has ever woken up. The youngest of three and ever a daydreamer, he first found enjoyment in drawing movie stars from his favorite action movies, before becoming a moody teenager.

While on a dream vacation in the Unites States, going from coast to coast in April 2001, when the World Trade Center still completed the New York skyline, he met and fell in love with a young woman from South Africa, who would later become his wife.

When cancer struck at the tender age of 35, he vowed that he would try and make a difference once he had recovered. He found that his contribution came in his ability to tell a good story, which was always there, he just never realized that it could be useful. Now with six novels under his belt, and with plenty of cool ideas bouncing around inside his head, he writes with a sense of fun and wonder.

He lives and writes in Essex, England with his gorgeous wife and rambunctious, and slightly high maintenance daughter.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
These are in no particular order. It's too difficult to choose an absolute favourite.
His Dark Materials - The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman. Fantastic book.
Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. Difficult to read in parts due to the graphic depictions, but so worth it. Unlike anything that I have ever read. A great addition to the vampire genre.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by the late Stieg Larsson. A brilliant slow pot boiler.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. A classic for all the right reasons. Amazing book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Absolutely gripping from start to finish. I love this book. She's amazing.
What do you read for pleasure?
The Percy Jackson series of books by Rick Riordan. They're hillarious, and Percy is such a great character.
The whole series is genius.
