David John Griffin is a writer, author of mystery books, graphic designer, and occasional electronic music composer, who lives with his wife Susan in a large town by the Thames in Kent, UK. He is currently working on the first draft of his sixth novel.
David’s on-going mission as an author is to produce absorbing, page-turning stories with a literary depth. His novels, with genres covering mystery, gothic, psychological, and paranormal, always have elements of magical realism within them. When writing short stories, he aims for that surprising “twist in the tail” at the end of each one.
His first book, published by Urbane Publications in 2015, is a gothic/paranormal novel called The Unusual Possession of Alastair Stubb. His literary/psychological novel, Infinite Rooms, was published a year after. The novella and collection of short stories called Two Dogs At The One Dog Inn And Other Stories (magical realism/paranormal) was published in January 2017 by Urbane Publications. Following that, he published a sci-fi time travel adventure called Abbie and the Portal. The urban fantasy novel called Turquoise Traveller was published in 2019.
His latest complete novel called When The Lover Lies is currently represented by Matthew Smith of Exprimez Literary Agency.
One of his short stories was shortlisted for The HG Wells Short Story competition 2012 and published in an anthology. He has had at least seven more stories published in other anthologies and magazines.
