I’m Clayton Morgan, a self-published author of horror, paranormal, thrillers, and crime fiction.

My first interest in writing was in grade school when my teacher read the Tell-Tale Heart aloud in class. It was around that time that I began writing poems and short stories of my own.

In 2009 my focus turned to a lifelong dream of writing a novel. TOWN, the 1st book in the Chronicles of James McConley series, is the brain child of that endeavor. The 4th book entitled the GHOST BANDITS was released in April of 2019. It’s fast paced, dark, and compelling. I’m currently working on a post-apocalyptic thriller (not zombie apocalypse) entitled CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. I’ll be revealing the cover and talking more about it in the near future.

I’m inspired by people who go for what they want despite what popular opinion may say. I have a thing for B-rate horror movies, prefer to eat more lobster, and despise daily routine. I’m well-traveled and have lived an adventurous life, but I find myself becoming more reclusive as time goes by.

I enjoy spending time at my place in rural Ohio, but I do my best writing in suburban Illinois where I live with my wonderful and very supportive girlfriend.
