Born, raised, and reared in Raleigh, NC, J. Griffin Hughes counts espresso and sushi as much a part of his Southerness as sweet tea and grits. Child of the '80s. Kitchen wizard for fun and profit. Lover of black and white films with detectives and samurai. He received his graduate degree in creative writing from Royal Holloway, University of London.
Meet Gracie Chapel, a 23-year-old former teenage runaway who has survived the streets of Titan City relying on her wits and fists to handle whatever trouble might come her way.
