N Gray is a South African author living in Cape Town. During the day, she is a spreadsheet wizard, creating dashboards, and tables with trending analysis in search of any anomalies. (Yes, she still has a day job). At night, she types on her curved keyboard creating fictional characters that some may love, and others you want to kill yourself. And for fun, she goes to the beach with her daughter and hubby, or take the fur babies for a walk.
She writes in multiple genres; her first three books are collections of short stories ranging from light horror to paranormal and a thriller.
In 2019, she released her first full-length novel, Ulysses Exposed, centering around Blaire Thorne, an assassin with amnesia who hunts and kills the monsters in Sterling Meadow.
In 2020, she joined other USA Today Bestselling authors to produce the Notorious Minds Boxset. Her contribution, Nightcrawler, is exclusive to this boxset and is the prequel to her Dana Mulder thriller series.

Can you, for those who don’t know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
Since I was little, I’ve always loved writing. I wrote my first short story when I was eight or nine on my mom’s typewriter and always wanted to do more with creative writing. Then with most of us, life happened, and I had to work, and life got busy. I hadn’t written in a long time, but it was always at the back of my mind. When I read it was possible to self-publish, I knew I had to do this or regret it for the rest of my life. In 2015 I had more time on my hands and started writing short stories again. In 2017, I self-published my first book and I haven’t looked back since. I still have a day job, I’m an analyst, and I’m aiming to become a full-time writer.
What is something unique/quirky about you?
I have a wicked sense of humor that I try to add to my books, along with little Easter eggs.
Tell us something really interesting that’s happened to you!
I’m from South Africa and stayed in Chicago for six weeks which was quite a big deal back then. I also won a Star Award at my previous company and I travelled to Dubai – the best part was going to the Abu Dhabi Ferrari World.
What are some of your pet peeves?
Where were you born/grew up at?
Johannesburg, South Africa. I love the sea and we moved to Cape Town in 2017—I need my walks on the beach.
If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
With my daughter and hubby
Who is your hero and why?
My mom, she’s no longer around but she loved to read and got me hooked. And I miss her every day.
What kind of world ruler would you be?
A chilled one who hates conflict, and people who hurt animals and others.
What are you passionate about these days?
My writing—boring I know but I’ve taken it more seriously this last year and want to get my bookie-babies out there.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
A walk on the beach, Netflix, or something with my daughter.
How to find time to write as a parent?
It’s difficult, but I get up really early to do some marketing and write before work starts. Now that the world has gone bonkers, I work from home which cuts travel time and that gives me extra hours to write.
Describe yourself in 5 words or less!
Disciplined, dedicated, not too serious.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Only after I published my Urban Fantasy series. Before then it didn’t feel real, but now it does—and people are buying my books (love you, guys).
Do you have a favorite movie?
Silence of the Lambs
Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
Definitely my Blaire Thorne books.
What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
None yet, only a retreat to my office (with the door closed)
As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
