Steve Griffin is the author of the adventure mystery series The Secret of the Tirthas. His poetry has been published in Poetry Ireland, The New Welsh Review, and The Rialto.

He grew up in Warwickshire and has worked for youth and environmental organisations in Wales and London. The Secret of the Tirthas was inspired by trips to India, Africa, and the US, as well as a real 'garden of rooms' deep in the English countryside.

He now lives in the Surrey Hills. When he's not working he spends his time walking, writing, reading and failing to keep one step ahead of two small children.

“Do you see how beautifully this hardship has shaped and formed the stretching branches and foliage, like long slender fingers pointing toward the sea?”

Hoang Chi Truong’s autobiography of her experience as a young girl fleeing the Vietnam war is fascinating on many levels: as an insight into Vietnamese culture, both before and after the war; as a harrowing tale of the upheaval and existentia...

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
"REVIEW: EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU

A glorious literary achievement, and one of the shining lights of publishing year 2014, Celeste Ng's EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU is exciting, engrossing, compelling, and tragic; a study in characterization at the..." Read more of this review »
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
" "Before that, she hadn't realised how fragile happiness was, how if you were careless, you could knock it over and shatter it."

Five stars, easily.

This is another one of those books that has been sat on my shelf unread for almost three years, and..." Read more of this review »

Making Connections: 4274. - THE CITY OF LIGHT (The Secret of the Tirthas, #1) by Steve Griffin 5 15 Jun 01, 2016 04:54PM  
Katherine Rundell
“I just liked the idea that there's still things that we don't know. At school, it's the same thing, every day. I liked that it might be all right to believe in large, mad, wild things.”
Katherine Rundell, The Explorer

“My looking ripens things
and they come towards me, to meet and be met.”
Rilke

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

“It is almost as though
something else is breathing

quite close by, invisibly.
The mystery of the names…
Albizzia. Gleditsia.

Aucuba japonica. And
I am listening, seeing. Seeing,
like someone twice alive.”
John Allison

Robert M. Sapolsky
“We are constantly being shaped by seemingly irrelevant stimuli, subliminal information, and internal forces we don't know a thing about.”
Robert M. Sapolsky
