Hello, my name is Kyle Garret.  I like to write.  I like a lot of other things, too (music, movies, TV shows in constant danger of cancellation, comic books, Jack Daniels, air conditioning, the Cleveland Indians, etc.), but given the intent of this web site, writing is key.

 

I spent most of my life in Ohio.  I attended Ohio University for six years where they let me have not just a Bachelor's in English, but also a Master's in Creative Writing.  After that I spent a few years in Atlanta, mostly trying to stay out of the hospital.  I also tried being a rock star for a bit, but that didn't work out.

 

I then spent nine years living in Los Angeles, which ended up being featured predominantly in the first book I ever wrote ("Reliquary," which is still waiting for me to send it out).

 

It was during those nine years in L.A. that I wrote "I Pray Hardest When I'm Being Shot At" which was released by Hellgate Press in June, 2011.

 

I'm also shopping around the aforementioned first novel and prepping to do the same for a YA book.  Aside from this web site, you can also find my work in a nice little short story collection called "Unrequited and Other Stories," which I've conveniently linked to Amazon for you.  If you're looking for just a taste of my work, please give "Unrequited" a try.  It's the first story in the collection, available as a digital download for just 99 cents.

 

I also contributed an essay to "Joss Whedon: The Complete Companion" from Titan Books on the character Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (see above re: TV shows in constant danger of cancellation).

 

My short story, "Young Zombies in Love," was a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award and appears in "Best New Writing 2014."

 

I currently live in Danville, California with my wife, our two cats, and a wonderful baby boy.

 

What I Do

 

Well, I write, mostly.

 

Aside from the aforementioned titles, I have a portfolio stocked with short stories, comic book proposals, graphic novel proposals, a novel, and two YA books.  I've even got an "Angel" spec script lying around somewhere.  I like to leave no stone unturned.

 

Hey, for that matter I've got a few CDs worth of music by bands I've been in, if that floats your proverbial boat.

 

As I was saying, I have a rather large stockpile of material just waiting to greet the world.  And that's why I've created this web site.
