About the Author: At the age of twelve Graham regularly danced around the lounge to Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights. Now forty-five, he still hasn’t decided what he’ll do when he grows up.
So far, he’s worked in an ice cream shop, trained as a hairdresser, studied sociology and psychology, written for and performed with a touring theatre company, and backpacked across far-flung countries with loose change in his pocket.
Graham now combines traveling with writing and he completed his first novel Purple during the sleepless, jet-lagged hours spent in hotel rooms around the world.
