Though a complete romantic at heart, Grayson's first major novel, Bright Star, flexed her fantasy/horror muscle and released to outstanding reviews with Lyrical Press, Inc in 2008. Reviews for this dark fantasy have been outstanding . The follow up, Domina, is much anticipated.

Fascination: Swallow and Nightingale

The Fascination: Swallow and Nightingale is a contemporary horror story based loosely on a portion of Ovid's Metamorphoses which features a mad king, his wife, her sister, and a chain of horrifying acts made in the name of love, lust, and vengeance.

Characterized by a distinctly broken protagonist, "The Fascination" is told in both a nonchalant and terrifying narrative voice. The tale carries the reader down the dangerous path of obsession and righteousness along with Terrence, its troubled centerpiece of this tale. Clear and easy, the language of the story subtly tricks the reader into devolving with Terrence as his obsession with  the beautiful Philomela grows.

A Sharpest Wife

On Halloween 2008, I started a series called A Sharpest Wife. It came about after I reread an email to a friend and noticed a typo where I had written "a sharpest wife". To this day, I don't remember what I was tryng to write, but I found the phrase so wrong and so interesting that I wondered what the story would be like.

Because it was for fun only, I ignore that dirty word "editing" and allowed the story to blossom organically. All the things that attract me in a dark story took seed and blossomed in the take. A Sharpest Wife centers around a socially instilled love/hate relationship between man and woman in the extreme, a nod mythology and the artificial history constructed by writers, and a bit beautiful violence.
