About Kathryn Meyer Griffith…
Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had twenty-two (ten romantic horror, two horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, two thrillers, and four murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, and Damnation Books/Eternal Press. In 2015 I got all my rights back to all 22 of my new/old novels and self-published each one. My Dinosaur L

my favorite of my 22 published books would have to be A Time of demons and Angels as it is close to my heart. But it deals with the end days and a religious theme (like the Left Behind books...except my book isn't as preachy, more a layman's view of the end days and the Rapture) so some people don't care for it. My other favorite, horror, is my 1993 book Witches. But my best selling two books would have to be my Dinosaur Lake (thriller) and Spookie Town Murder Mystery series. I write horror, murder mystery and time-travel but, truthfully, I consider myself just storyteller and most of my books blend multiple genres. *My books can be found here:

Thanks for the question. Happy New Year! And for the first time in over 32 years (I've been writing for over 44 years now and have been with traditional publishers since 1984) ALL my 22 books completely belong to just me (no more publishers) and I have recently self-published each one with new covers, paperbacks and audio books! I'm so happy about that.

It was a happy accident I think. I never made the connection until you mentioned it. The narrator is right now doing the 3rd Dinosaur Lake audio book for me and should be done in a few months. Sorry it took so long to reply but I never saw your question 8 months ago. But that was about the time my sweet brother was dying (and died) of cancer and my mind wasn't much with my books.

The Nameless One- ancient Egyptian erotic horror short story (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2016 03:01PM
Description: Sometimes revenge can only be achieved with magic. Laura and Julian Bennet were husband and wife Egyptologists who were looking for an ancient tomb of a lost pharaoh’s lesser wife…one who’d been so evil and destructive her grave has no name; she has no name. Legend and rumors said she’d been a stunningly beautiful and sensual sorceress who’d once had her lover, Rameses II, under her evil spell until the more powerful Priests of Amun captured and locked her into a magical sarcophagus for eternity–or so they’d believed. But when Laura and Julian found her tomb, the price it cost them was far more than they’d been prepared to pay. Julian’s life. Then Laura, heartbroken, had to delve into the most dangerous of black magics to defeat The Nameless One, extract revenge, and put the demon back where she belongs.
Forever and Always-a romantic short story (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2016 02:58PM
Description: Emma Baker’s husband, Jonathan, has just divorced her, shattered her heart and left her and her young son, Christopher, to fend for themselves. Bitterly lonely, she accepts a girlfriend’s suggestion to go out on her first night as a newly free woman. She vows not to let a man turn her head, vows not to let love make a fool of her again. But she never counted on meeting a charismatic and sexy nightclub bouncer like Ben Lauery, who takes her for an exciting ride on his Harley, sweeps her off her feet and steals her heart. She never counted on the fireworks that explode in the bedroom and the sweetness of his burning kisses when he gently seduces her and makes her love him forever and always. All she knows is that, in the end, she can’t resist the passion, devotion and the forever love he’s offering and she has to give love a second chance.
Ghosts Beneath Us - 3rd of the Spookie Town Murder Mysteries (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2016 02:45PM
Description: Someone is terrorizing the elderly in a certain neighborhood in Spookie and vandalizing their homes. As usual, Abigail Sutton, a freelance artist, and her boyfriend Frank Lester, a retired homicide detective, are called in to help find out who’s doing these awful acts. The two seem to have an uncanny knack for unraveling mysteries and getting to the bottom of such strange happenings. Some of the old people think it’s ghosts in their basements, in their homes, doing these destructive deeds but Frank doesn’t believe in ghosts; while Abigail isn't so sure. Then the old folks begin to disappear one by one or to die suspiciously and Frank thinks there’s a sinister plan behind the crimes and is determined to uncover who or what is responsible. In the end, they, with a little help from their friend eccentric old Myrtle, must solve the mystery or more of the old ones in town might end up dead.
All Things Slip Away - 2nd of the Spookie Town Murder Mysteries (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2016 02:37PM
Description: Ten years ago Frank Lester, a Chicago homicide detective, thought he had rid himself forever of the Mud People Killer who’d kidnapped and murdered six people. Frank had shot him as he’d fled through a snowy night; had killed him, he believed, though a body was never found. But the killer wasn’t dead. He’d only been waiting to take his revenge on Frank and those he cares about now…ten years later. Frank retired early and is living back in his hometown of Spookie when the killer resurfaces to take up where he left off. Kidnapping more innocents and tormenting Frank and the people he cares about. Unless Frank and his artist girlfriend, Abigail Sutton, can find and stop him before he kills more people and perhaps both of them.
Dinosaur Lake III: Infestation- 3rd of the Dinosaur Lake Series by Kathryn Meyer Griffith (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 04, 2016 02:18PM
Description: Chief Park Ranger Henry Shore has dealt with and fought real live dinosaurs at his beloved Crater Lake National Park for over six years. With the help of his rangers, a few brave FBI friends and army soldiers he’d been victorious over a prehistoric lake creature and years later some particularly fiendish, and clever, specimens of the flying variety. He and his newspaper publisher wife, Ann, thought their park was finally rid of the monsters and they could reclaim their tranquil life in a place they cherished. Not so. For suddenly across the park new and even more malevolent mutant species of dinosaur begin to appear and create havoc, attacking the park’s visitors and threatening its peace. And this time the primeval scourge isn’t confined to just their park. The creatures have moved into the nearby towns, across the western United States and up into Canada. They are so much more aggressive, smarter and hungrier than any that have come before and the infestation is spreading further and faster than Henry and Ann can even imagine. This time there’s no easy way to defeat the dinosaurs. There’s too many of them and they’re too devious. This time it’s full out war and the victor will someday claim Earth.
