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. When she’s not writing you can find her treating her fur-babies like humans, constantly drinking tea, and trying to convince her husband to go to more concerts. And reading. She does ...more

I've written up to book 6 in the Monster of Selkirk series, the second book is done and simple waiting for the publication date while books 3 - 6 are with the editor now. 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)

The Wrath of Silence by C.E. Clayton
"Oh, Clayton, you genius you ;)! So, please, nobody judge this book in contrast to how long this took me to read and review! 2020 has been an absolute chicken coop floor, if you catch my drift-both for the world and me personally. Onto the review!

“Black Girl Unlimited” is the ‘based on a true story’ life of the author herself, with a fantasy-magical realism overlay to everything, especially the traumatic parts. This book is devastating, but not in a bad way, but more in the way of a gifted gi ...more

“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

“All this time you’ve spoken to it, looked into your soul, and spied that darkness lurking and twisting through the fabric of all that you are. You fed it nothing but your hatred, your anger and guilt, shame, regret, and yes, your loneliness. It grew fat on all the things you wanted to be rid of. You did not suspect? Did the Tallis never consider the darkness within was looking back? Learning? And growing strong, ever stronger. Stupid, foolish girl. The Tallis never knew! Ignoring it all, stuffing all the bad and ugly things down, down, down doesn’t get rid of them. What you choose to feed your divine spark is what it turns into!”
C.E. Clayton, The Wrath of Silence
