James Gregory "JG" Faherty (born January 27, 1961) is an American author who writes in the horror, science fiction, and dark fantasy genres.

Faherty was born in Olean, New York. He moved to Stony Point, New York at the age of four, and resided there on and off until moving to Garnerville in 2011. He obtained B.S. in Biology at Saint Bonaventure University and has additional graduate credits in Biology.

Between 1987-99, he held jobs in Medical Technology, Laboratory Equipment Repair, Biomedical R&D, Photography, Sales, and Quality Control. In 1999, he started his own resume preparation company, A Perfect Resume, and continues to operate it, along with its sister company, Million Dollar Resumes.

In 2002, he began writing short horror and science fiction. His first novel, Carnival of Fear, was published in 2010 by Graveside Tales.

In 2011, his second novel, Ghosts of Coronado Bay, was published by JournalStone Books and later nominated for a Bram Stoker Award® for Superior Achievement in YA Horror.[1]

In 2012, as the Horror Writers Association's Library Liaison and founder of their YA Literacy and Library programs, Faherty initiated literacy initiatives with several library organizations and established a partnership with Ray Billingsley, creator of the Curtis comic strip seen in more than 250 newspapers, to promote literacy to young adult readers.

In 2013, he established partnerships with actress/author Amber Benson and musician/actor/writer Richard Christy to promote literacy through horror and dark fiction, science fiction, and other genre fiction.

In 2014, his fourth novel, The Burning Time, was nominated for an International Thriller Writers' Thriller Award.

In 2015, his fifth novel, The Cure, was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award® for Superior Achievement in a Novel.

He has served as a Trustee on the Horror Writers Association's Board since 2011, and directs their Library & Literacy Program.
