My work as Hargrove Perth

So you are probably wondering 'why is she publishing under another name?'  Well, it is complicated, but it has to do with several factors. Hargrove's books are a bit  edgier, not as friendly as the books I have written, and some of them may even be considered shocking. The Quintessential Gentleman is a good example; it is explicit, graphic, and gory.

Another factor is a comment an agent made to me. 'Is that your real last name or did you steal it from Mario Brothers?' Wow. I nearly died. Yes, it is my real last name. In fact, Bowser is a very common name on the east coast, and no, I didn't get it from a video game.

Thirdly, Hargrove allows me to tap into venues I have not written before with a tinge of eroticism added or horror so frightening the skin crawls and will open me up to a whole new class of readers. I hope you will stop by Hargrove's tab to see what has been published and upcoming releases. Or stop by the new website for Hargrove at

About Hargrove...

A pertual nightowl and lover of all things horror related, Hargrove finds inspiration in the most unlikely places. Whether inspiration is found in the hidden truths of the serial killers of antiquity or in the present day, it truly can be said that truth is always stranger and often more horrific than fiction. A penchant for research and a dedication to creating literary indulgences that the reader is unable to forget, Hargrove spends a great deal of time researching the larger than life characters of history to formulate characters unforgettable, despised, and strangely adored. Currently a resident of the central midwest, Hargrove says no one city can be claimed as home and tends to have a 'gypsy' like gene, never residing in one city long enough to become attached or long enough to become bored.
