Steve Griffin writes chilling ghost stories, thrilling young adult adventure, and inspiring poetry.

His most recent book is the #1 International Bestseller, The Boy in the Burgundy Hood, described by US author Sherry Ross as ‘an eerie but beautiful ghost story’.

Steve’s travels around India, Africa and America - combined with the discovery of a magical garden buried deep in the English countryside - inspired him to write the 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'.

His two poetry books are The Things We Thought Were Beautiful and Up in the Air. They include poems he has previously published in magazines such as Poetry Ire

Topics Mentioning This Author

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
