Arthur Griffin

Arthur Griffin is a huge fantasy nerd, and has also been known to be a fan of men. Influences include: Greek mythology, Joss Whedon, Norse mythology, Mortal Kombat, Celtic/Brittanic mythology, Marvel Comics, Eastern mythology, Tolkien, Indian mythology, Xena: Warrior Princess, South American mythology, Game of Thrones, and pretty much any mythology except Roman. I mean, screw those guys, right? Arthur Griffin fell in love with mythology as a six-year-old when his mother, not able to find a sitter, took him with her to her art history class. They were studying Renaissance paintings of Greek and Roman legends, and he learned two very important things that day. One, that there was a whole new world of thrilling stories and myths for him to explore and be enchanted by. And two, dude! A lot of people were naked back then! Since then, he’s always enjoyed the steamier side of stories of the ancient world, and is thrilled to be exploring them in his writing. Sometimes his stories are set in a fictional version of the past, or sometimes the gods of old come knockin' (boots) in the present, but almost always there's some element of mythology visible in his work. Arthur lives in Los Angeles with his boyfriend and two imaginary dogs. He had an imaginary cat, but it died. When he’s not writing fantastical tales of two (or more) dudes doing the bone dance, he enjoys hiking, karaoke, superhero comics, getting drinks in West Hollywood, going to the beach, going to the gym, going to the movies, and writing non-smutty screenplays. (But for the record, smut is WAY more fun.) You can follow him on Twitter at @MrArthurGriffin, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MrArthurGriffin, or email him at MrArthurGriffin@gmail.com.
