C. E. Clayton was born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, where she attended the University of Southern California for both her Bachelors and Masters, and then worked in the advertising industry for several years on accounts ranging from fast food, to cars, and video games (her personal favorite). After going the traditional career route and becoming restless, she went back to her first love—writing—and hasn’t stopped. She is now the author of “The Monster of Selkirk” series and her horror short stories have appeared in anthologies across the country.

So I am working on those edits while writing book seven, the final book in the series.(less)

I read that book early in middle school and gave a half hour book report on it detailing every aspect of it to the class, which I enjoyed! But no one else did... And when it comes to new releases, I usually wait for the hype of new releases to die down before I hop on. I'm a bit leery of the hype and what not. So the most recent "new" release I read and adored was "Angelfall" by Susan Ee.

I clearly have a type in books, both new and old. Give me a good Fantasy with a hero's journey, and I'm in!(less)

“Tallis had persevered through and unshakable feeling of not truly belonging... She understood the responsibility her family constraints put upon her, and while Lana knew Tallis's heart trembled and raged at the perceived indignity of it all, she had grown up into a charming, beautiful woman with shoulders that refused to bow to a world that demanded they should.”
C.E. Clayton, The Duality of Nature

“Tallis is a beautiful and terrible thing. Fearsome and alluring. Just like the forest in many ways... but it's written all over that handsome, pale face of yours; you like her.”
C.E. Clayton, The Duality of Nature

“Tallis wasn't sure what love was, but she was beginning to understand what it could be. It seemed only fitting that as soon as she thought she had found it, that she would be forced to give it up in order to save Selkirk from the sins of its past.”
C.E. Clayton, The Monster Of Selkirk Book II: The Heart Of The Forest
