Clay and Susan Griffith met at a bookstore thanks to Uncanny X-Men #201. They had to get married because of a shared love of adventure stories with heroes who save the day and fall in love. Soon they were writing stories together.
They have written comic books such as THE TICK and BART SIMPSON. They are the authors of numerous historical fantasy-adventure novels. Their CROWN & KEY trilogy will be published by Del Rey in June/July 2015. The fourth book in their VAMPIRE EMPIRE series, THE GEOMANCER, comes out in November 2015.
After years of comics, short stories, and novels, they remain happily married. When not writing or talking about writing, Clay and Susan are watching classic movies, playing Warcraft, and struggling to entertain a cat.
They still have that copy of Uncanny X-Men #201.
