About Kelley Griffin

A closet Romantic Suspense writer, mom to five sons, wife to a Marine, and southerner by common law, Kelley Griffin writes the old fashioned way; a fluid pen and spiral bound books of lineless paper.  She's blessed to be surrounded by testosterone, laughter, family, and love everyday.  Her characters will be etched in your memory long after the last page.  Kelley's unpublished debut novel “The Unraveling of Kirin Lane” explores the journey of a clumsy 40 year old widow, thrust into her late father's world of corruption in order to discover the truth about her mother's untimely death.  Her second novel, "Binding Circumstance" follows a young single mother, who's afraid of being touched after surviving abuse in college.  She finally allows herself to pursue her dream job, only to find that the hot Hollywood actor she's stumbled across might be tied more intricately to her past than she ever thought possible. 


When you have your characters bumble into awkward situations you are at your best. And one of the things I appreciate about your writing is that your characters are so human. They stumble and bumble, say the wrong things, embarrass themselves, feel like they never measure up, etc. And yet, you endow them with an innate strength which, perhaps, they didn’t even know they had.

Writing Style

Kelley's writing style is a mixture of suspense, humor and romance and although there is a desk in the closet, she prefers to write on the cluttered floor at 5 am.  Most Saturday's when she is not driving to the endless flurry of practices, games and birthday parties you can find her sitting in her closet, door closed, headphones on, writing the next scene in her latest novel.
