About

Graham EdwardsGraham Edwards was born in England near Glastonbury Tor and now lives in Nottingham (it wasn’t such a big leap from King Arthur to Robin Hood). His formative years were spent on England’s Jurassic Coast making disturbing Super-8 films. And drawing spaceships. And writing. Art college in London led to a career as a graphic designer and animator. He’s also worked as a scriptwriter and multimedia producer for theme parks and visitor centres.

Graham’s first novel Dragoncharm was directly inspired by Watership Down. If Richard Adams could write an epic adventure about rabbits, why not do the same for dragons? Dragoncharm and its sequels all received nominations for Best Novel in the British Fantasy Awards. Later novels include Stone & Sky – in which Graham explores the dizzying heights of a world-sized wall, travels in time and plays with fairies – and the neolithic detective novel Talus and the Frozen King.

Graham’s short fiction has been published in US magazines and collected for various anthologies. One of the stories – Girl in Pieces – made the longlist for the Nebula Awards. The String City Mysteries, a series of novelettes about a hard-boiled detective who just happens to work in a parallel dimension, is currently available as a set of ebooks. He’s also written a number of novels in collaboration with series editorial teams. These are under pseudonym, so there’s a chance you’ve read one of his books without even realising it.

Graham is currently employed as senior staff writer at Cinefex magazine, the journal of cinematic illusions, where he researches and writes in-depth articles about motion picture visual effects.
