Steve Griffin lives in the Surrey Hills with his wife and two sons. He writes chilling ghost stories, thrilling young adult adventure, and inspiring poetry.

His travels around India, Africa and America - combined with the discovery of a magical garden of rooms buried deep in the English countryside - inspired him to write his adventure mystery series, The Secret of the Tirthas. The first book in the series, The City of Light, was described in The Guardian as 'entertaining and exciting'.

Steve has also written a ghost story for adults, The Boy in the Burgundy Hood, and two poetry books. The latest of these, The Things We Thought Were Beautiful, was released in March 2020 and reached the top ten in Amazon's Inspirational Poetry.

Making Connections: 4274. - THE CITY OF LIGHT (The Secret of the Tirthas, #1) by Steve Griffin 4 15 Jun 01, 2016 04:54PM  
Robert Aickman
“Nothing is more lethal to the effect that a ghost story should make than for the author to provide alternative materialist solution. This reduces a poem to a puzzle and confines the reader’s spirit instead of enlarging it.”
Robert Aickman

Stephen King
“I think reality is thin, you know, thin as lake ice after a thaw, and we fill our lives with noise and light and motion to hide that thinness from ourselves.”
Stephen King, Bag of Bones

Olga Tokarczuk
“Blake would say that there are some places in the Universe where the Fall has not occurred, the world has not turned upside down and Eden still exists. Here Mankind is not governed by the rules of reason, stupid and strict, but by the heart and intuition. The people do not indulge in idle chatter, parading what they know, but create remarkable things by applying their imagination. The state ceases to impose the shackles of daily oppression, but helps people to realize their hopes and dreams. And Man is not just a cog in the system, not just playing a role, but a free Creature.”
Olga Tokarczuk

Olga Tokarczuk
“In a way, people like her, who wield a pen, can be dangerous. At once a suspicion of fakery springs to mind - that such a Person is not him or herself, but an eye that's constantly watching, and whatever it sees it changes into sentences; in the process it strips reality of its most essential quality - its inexpressibility.”
Olga Tokarczuk

Stephen King
“I didn't think about anything, and yet I thought about everything. It was a special kind of thinking, the sort I'd always done when I was getting close to writing a book”
Stephen King, Bag of Bones
