Born in Krefeld/Germany, Carol Grayson followed the literary traces of her grandfather Hardy Kickers who became known as a composer and author of regional novels in the 1940s and 1950s. Therefore, it was obvious to found at first a music publishing company which takes care of the partly forgotten, nostalgic hit treasures which are very popular in German Rhineland until today.
Presently, she lives in Kempen on the Lower Rhine and is mainly writing Mystery and Dark Fantasy short stories and novels.

Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from and how long have you been writing?
My name is Carola Kickers and I´m also writing under my pen name Carol Grayson. Most of my books are settled in dark fantasy and mystery, but also crime novels and stories for kids are belonging to my themes. I´ve been writing since my earliest youth and my first book has been published in 1996.
Tell us about your latest book. What do you hope readers take away from it?
You will find a lot more information about my publications (sorry, in German only up to now) at http://carolgrayson-darkromance.blogspot.com – one of my largest projects is the Jason Dawn Series. Find more about this extensive vampire saga (published long before the Twilight hype started) here: http://jasondawn-luxaeterna.blogspot.com . The first English book has been published as DNL-Ebook and is called “Crimson Blood”. Of course, there are more to come.
Share some of your writing goals. What’s next for you?
Continuing the series which are already running and maybe doing some readings this year.
What is one of the things you’re most thankful for as a writer?
I like to thank all my readers and I´m thankful for useful critics as well as people that are encouraging me to continue and to try new genres as well. Thank you all for your feedback.
