Welcome to my website!

Since I was eight years old, all I've wanted to be was a writer, and since 1984, I have been fortunate enough to spend my life writing full time. I've written over 60 books—novels and novellas in the horror and suspense genres, collections of short stories, movie novelizations, and TV tie-ins—with more in the works. My readers have made it possible for me to indulge my love of writing and I get a tremendous amount of joy out of communicating with them. I've been doing that on Facebook and Twitter for a few years, and now I have a home of my own on the internet. This is the place to find out what I've written, what I'm writing and where to get it. You can read my blog, keep up to date on new releases, take part in contests, and read an occasional short story online. Thanks for coming by—look around, get comfortable, and visit often!

Ray Garton's Live Girls

The garish neon lights of New York City's Times Square can be very seductive. And so can the promises of dark pleasures on the seedier side streets. To Davey Owen, the lure of a glowing sign advertising "Live Girls" was too hard to resist. He was looking for a little entertainment. He found instead a nightmare in the form of a beautiful but strangely pale woman. A woman who offers him passion, ecstasy—and eternal life—but takes in exchange his lifeblood and his very soul.

This new edition of Live Girls features a new introduction by Ray Garton, and two bonus stories: "Hair of the Dog" and "Devon," as well as new dustjacket art by Adam Braun and archival art by Ron Lesser.

This 384-page book has full black cloth binding with stamping in multiple colors. The book has head and tail bands, ribbon marker, and a top-edge stain, along with full wraparound dustjacket art.
