About Me

All the stuff you really don't want to know...

From Greg Meritt….

I fell in love with reading when I was young, not much more than thirteen or fourteen, if memory serves me right. For some strange reason, I’ve always gravitated toward suspense, thriller and horror stories. Perhaps I enjoy being scared or on the edge-of-my-seat.

So, I’ve read voraciously all my life. And then, suddenly, I woke up one day and thought: I could write my own stories! This crazy thought entered my deranged mind without any hint of ever publishing anything. This was strictly for my own personal enjoyment.

I read a lot of Stephen King, John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Gillian Flynn…well, the list goes on. And after writing over 40 short stories with no thought of doing anything with them, I sent one of them off (at the urging of friends) to a Writer’s Digest Magazine contest and placed 18th out of 5,900 entries. I was blown away.

I’m just a normal (whatever that means), happily-married guy, who adopted three wonderful children in 2009. Two boys and a girl. They are 14, 13 and 11 and the absolute joy (and pain) of my life. I have a good job, loving family and my words. My stories. My crazy brain spewing out stuff that I need to put down on paper. What more could I want?

The Adoption is my first full-length novel and the sequel is in the works. My dream, of course, would be to write full-time. But like most people, I have a family to support. Maybe someday that dream will come true, who knows? In the meantime, I’ll keep writing and I hope you will keep reading.
