A.R. Clayton is an American writer who independently published her first horror novel, Memory Bound, in October 2018. Peregrine Arc is a platform she created to support her publication dreams. Genres include primarily horror at the moment, but she has dabbled in other literature forms including fantasy and science fiction.

Literature themes that resonate with her include Christianity, the ancient war between good and evil, adversity and resilience, crime, the human story, and figures appearing mysteriously in windows. Her dog, Ru, insists on featuring in each novel.

The author wishes other writers out there happy writing journeys and encouragement. Stay resilient.
