Greg Howard grew up near the coast of South Carolina. His hometown of Georgetown, South Carolina is known as the Ghost Capital of the South and was always a great source of material for his overactive imagination. Raised in a staunchly religious home, Greg escaped into the arts- singing, playing piano, acting, writing songs, and making up stories. These days, Greg resides in Nashville, TN with his husband, Steve, and their three rescued fur babies. Molly, Toby, and Riley.
