John Grover

I am a 39 year old writer residing in Boston, Massachusetts. I have always had an interest in horror from the time I was a young. I can remember growing up watching "Creature Double Feature" with my brother on Saturday afternoons.

My love of writing started in High School and I can remember that any writing assignment asked of me in class always seemed to end up being a ghost story or the story of the creature inside the well of my backyard.

At 18 I decided to take my writing seriously and have been creating works of the macabre and submitting to editors and publishers ever since.

I completed a creative writing class at Fisher College in Boston and spent a couple years as an affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association. I am currently a member of the New England Horror Writers, a chapter of the Horror Writers Association.

I've appeared in several anthologies over the years and have published more than 50 stories both on-line and in print.

I feel my writing has changed and evolved over the years and as I've read and studied the mechanics of writing more, researched the genre and learned of the exciting power of the internet and the ability to reach thousands with my work all over the world, I think that I'm at the the top of my game and can only get better. My first paperback “Space Stations and Graveyards” is still available at and through my publisher Double Dragon Publishing.

Following that are two all new solo collections: first, a chapbook entitled “Terror in Small Doses” out now by Nocturne Press (see my Works page to purchase and read reviews of this exciting new title,) and a solo short story collection entitled “A Beckoning of Shadows” which will be available as a trade paperback by the end of 2006. Please see my News page for more information.

My favorite shows today and yesterday are, “The X-files”, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Tales from the Darkside”, “Twilight Zone”, “Monsters”, “Tales from the Crypt”, “The Outer Limits”, “Medium”, “Supernatural”, “Smallville”, “Stargate”, “Battlestar Gallactica” and “Star Trek” (all of them).

Please feel free to browse the site, email me, and have a good time. I love to chat…
