Garth Jeffries has had a passion for creative writing for as long as he can remember. His first short story, at the age of nine, got a five-star review from his mother! But a career in writing was not initially in the cards for Garth, and he pursued a career in marketing to not only pay the bills but provide an outlet for his creative writing ambitions. 

During his thirty-plus year career, he made multiple attempts to kickstart his novel, and despite exploring numerous storylines, life and career were always there to get in the way. But a few years ago Garth found himself “retired” and rather than looking for a new job decided instead to focus on that life-long dream. The result was Garth's first book,  STARBUCK, NANTUCKET REDEMPTION, which ultimately became a category bestseller.



That success encouraged Garth to pursue NOT ALL BODIES STAY BURIED, a supernatural thriller that looks at a different, darker side of Nantucket. ​

He is actively working on his next Nantucket thriller about the mysterious death of a local and targeting a fall 2024 release. 

Garth was raised on the East Coast and spent his first summer on Nantucket in 1965 and still spends several months on the island each year. When on the mainland, you can find him in the Kansas City metropolitan area with his wife of 36 years.
