Clay and Susan Griffith met at a bookstore thanks to Uncanny X-Men #201. They had to get married because they a shared love of adventure stories with heroes who save the day and fall in love. Soon they were writing stories together.
They are the authors of numerous historical fantasy-adventure novels including the CROWN & KEY trilogy (Del Rey) and the VAMPIRE EMPIRE series (PYR Books). They have also written comic books such as THE TICK, BART SIMPSON, and ALLAN QUATERMAIN.
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.
