Editorial Reviews


"Scraps of Paper is a well-constructed mystery with just the right mix of good guys and bad guys, with a sprinkling of oddballs and misfits thrown in. Kathryn Meyer Griffin does a nice job of allowing the friendship of the book's two main characters to develop as the story progresses. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good who-done-it, set in a picturesque environment with believable characters. This is the first book in a series the author calls 'The Spookie Town Mysteries'." 5 Stars Reviewed by Michael McManus for Readers' Favorite May 17, 2013 (Second in the series: ALL THINGS SLIP AWAY)

From the Author

The Story of Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away, Ghosts Beneath Us, Witches Among Us & What Lies Beneath the Graves. 

I originally began writing this Spookie Town Murder Mystery series, set in a quirky little town I called Spookie (a tip of my hat to my horror roots) around 2002. I'd written the first book, Scraps of Paper and in 2006 the second I titled All Things Slip Away for Avalon Books as hardcovers. But it took me another 9 years to write and put out the third, Ghosts Beneath Us. Life, as it always does, got in the way -and I was writing my award winning Dinosaur Lake series and overseeing the production of twenty-something audio books (of my back list books going back to 1984). By then, 2012, I'd left Avalon Books and my other legacy publishers far behind and was self-publishing all my books. I still am.

Scraps of Paper is about an artist named Abigail Sutton, whose husband has been missing for two years, and who's just learned he's been dead all that time -a victim of a gone-wrong mugging. She begins a new life and moves to a small town full of fog, quirky townspeople and mysteries. And right away she's drawn into one of her own when she buys, renovates, a fixer-upper house and uncovers hidden in it scraps of paper written by two young children who once lived there with their mother, and who supposedly drove away thirty years before and were never seen again. The town thought they simply went somewhere else; began a new life. But Abigail suspects they never left the house; suspects they'd been murdered. She finds three graves in the back woods. Of course, with her history of a missing husband she develops the overpowering urge to find out what happened to them. The scraps of paper she continues to find makes the bond, the desire, stronger. She forms a friendship with an ex-homicide cop, Frank, and together they solve the mystery. Only thing is there's someone still living in the town that just as desperately doesn't want them to; someone who'd kill to keep the murderer's identity secret. The next four books are the continuation of Abigail and Frank's sleuthing adventures, their blossoming romance and about the eccentric,lovable people who live in Spookie.

All Things Slip Away zeroes in more on Frank, the ex-homicide detective, as a serial killer from his past threatens their peaceful town of Spookie and both Frank and Abby's lives.

Ghosts Beneath Us about the old people in town supposedly being haunted and killed off by...ghosts.

Witches Among Us, released in 2017, is about a young beautiful psychic who joins the town and helps solve the next murder mystery with our gang and turns out to have a direct family connection to old Myrtle.

What Lies Beneath the Graves, the fifth book, is a long ago buried treasure tale and a murder mystery rolled into one.
The first four are now in eBook, paperback and in audio books.
