Welcome to my website and to the people and worlds that have sprung to life in my imagination. I hope you enjoy or will come to enjoy meeting all of them.
The novels of the Star Commandos series form the core of my work to date. Each tale can be read independently, but together, they form an ongoing story of high adventure and strong characters bound to one another in ever-deepening relationships as they work together to build their own future and their ultrasystem's. All will be carefully revised and edited and will be made available by MuseItUp Publishing in electronic format. STAR COMMANDOS, the first book; COLONY IN PERIL, book 2; MISSION UNDERGROUND, book 3; DEATH PLANET, book 4, and MIND SLAVER, book 5, have already been released.
THE BASTET TRILOGY, an anthology detailing the stories of three heroic cats and their human Partners, has been released in electronic format by Musa Publishing.
THE GIFT OF MAGIC, a fantasy novel featuring Trouble and his associates, has been released in electronic format by Musa Publishing to follow the TROUBLE THE CAT anthology.
Besides writing in my own universe, I have enjoyed the great privilege of being able to work in three created by Andre Norton, the Grand Dame of Science Fiction. There is a tale each in her two-novel Witch World volumes STORMS OF VICTORY and FLIGHT OF VENGEANCE. In addition, FIREHAND is a continuation of her Time Traders series and REDLINE THE STARS of the Solar Queen series. I have also had the pleasure of contributing stories to a number of anthologies she edited including all the CATFANTASTIC books.

P.M. Griffin Interview
MIND SLAVER Book 5 Star Commandos
Ships have been disappearing in Quandon Sector, and the Commandos planet on Omrai to discover why. Formidable wildlife and bitter cold almost end the mission and their lives with it, but Connor discovers the horrifying answer to the puzzle. A gigantic Arcturian battleship had crashed some ten years previously and is using slave labor and material from the captured vessels to reoutfit itself and return to a war its crew cannot know has ended. To Sogan's horror, he learns the workers are held, not by physical force, but by mental compulsion, and the mind slaver can only be a kinsman of his. If this almost spaceworthy war craft and its renegade commander return to the starlanes, the results will be disastrous, but how can the unit and their on-world ally stop the twin menace?

“I appreciate very much having had the chance to read Pauline Griffin’s STAR COMMANDOS. This is excellent s-f adventure, but it also contains depth in its characters and awakens in the reader a constant desire to know more of them and a concern for them. I consider this one of the best stories of its type that I have read for some time. And I hope to meet the two protagonists again in some future story. This is s-f adventure at its brightest and best.”
