KATHRYN MEYER GRIFFITH-WOMAN IN HORRORhttp://www.bebo.com/kathrynmeyerG
Kathryn Meyer Griffith has written so many great novels over the years that I'm not even going to attempt to list them all here. My all time favorite The Last Vampire is one great end of world tale that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next. On one of my frequently visited blogs the other week, my friend was asking about our favorite tales of this nature. My response:" The Last Vampire. Nothing else even comes close." I have enclosed her bio below, and a glowing description of her masterpiece.
I've been writing for over 40 years now...published for 29 of those years since 1984; have fourteen novels and 8 short stories to my name...and more coming. I write traditional supernatural horror, murder mysteries and paranormal romance. I've been writing about ghosts, haunted places and evil vampires WAY LONG BEFORE Stephanie Meyer (no relation to me even though my maiden name is Meyer) and the rest of the vampire author crowd, ha, ha. And between June 2010 and July 2012 ten of my older Zebra, Leisure paperbacks and Wild Rose Press books are going to be repackaged, reprinted and rereleased for the first time in many years (and in e-books for the first time ever) from DAMNATION BOOKS and ETERNAL PRESS. Yippie! So look for them.
I'm a wife of 33 years (husband, Russell), mother (one son, James) and grandmother (two grandchildren, Caitlyn and Joshua). I was a graphic designer in the corporate world for 23 years; and have published with Dorchester, Kensington, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books and Eternal Press. Recently, I've crossed over into e-books as well as paperbacks. I love cats and nature, classic rock and country music (my brother, JS Meyer, is a singer/songwriter and does the songs for all my self-made book trailers that are on my websites).

Did I not say Kathryn is a busy lady?!
Here's the description for The Last Vampire: Product Description Author's new revised edition...never before released as an ebook! The earthquakes with their falling ash, the global floods and the devastating fires arrive first. Then the worldwide plague with its stench of death. And as mankind suffers and dies out, vampires, their numbers dwindling, struggle and fight fiercely among themselves to survive in a world where there aren’t enough humans to prey and feed upon. As the weeks go by they become fewer, more desperate and more ruthless.
Emma, as the world disintegrates around her, finds herself alone, family all have perished…and fending off an unnatural hunger as she becomes one of the undead. Fighting her unwanted destiny she’s determined to resist the bloodlust she feels, the need to kill and feed on humans, of losing her humanity, for as long as she can bear it…but she’s so hungry…and the night calls.
One other thing about The Last Vampire: it was an Epic Awards Ebook Finalist. It should have won.
Is there any doubt that Kathryn Meyer Griffith is a Woman In Horror? Absolutely none!
